Diploma Program Faculty of Economics UGM once again inaugurates 73 graduates from the Regional Financial Accounting Special Class. The ceremony took place at Wednesday night (4/8) marked by the delivery of certificates by the Head of UGM Economics Diploma Program, Dr. Fahmy Radhi. "A total of 73 graduates of the Regional Financial Accounting Special Class are originally from Kotabaru District and Banjarmasin Municipality. Banjarmasin successfully graduated 30 participants of 19 SKPD, while Kotabaru Regency graduated 43 participants from 16 SKPD," said Fahmy Radhi in his speech.
Besides appreciating their achievements, Fahmy said that the Special Classes have been held in accordance to UGM standards. The references, for example, are in terms of assessment, attendance in class and final exam. Each participant is considered as having met the various standards. "Because of it, it is not surprising that the Kotabaru District or Banjarmasin Municipality this time has 100 percent graduation rate," he said at the Auditorium of Economics Diploma Program UGM.
UGM hopes that this special class can provide benefits and added value, especially for participants. Thus, the benefits can be enjoyed also by SKPDs and subsequently affect the progress of districts and municipalities.
According to Fahmy, skills and knowledge in regional financial accounting are urgently needed. This special class is expected to encourage both regions to improve their accountability and capability. Therefore, the theory and practice that have been received can be applied at the institution. Besides, the graduates are expected to contribute in the assessment improvement undertaken by the Financial Audit Board (BPK). "I assume that is the optimal results and contributions that are expected from these participants," said Fahmy.
In his particular message, Fahmy stated that the students of the Special Class will remain in their position. This request was presented to regional leaders who attended the inauguration ceremony. "That means the education and training would be wasted if the participants are then moved to other fields because their newly added value can be reducing, therefore I hope that the graduates remain where they are now," he said.
In this graduation, 20 participants graduating with cum laude degree and are entitled to continue their studies in Accounting Diploma Program UGM; from Kotabaru District there are as many as 10 graduates and 10 graduates of Banjarmasin Municipality. Meanwhile, two graduates achieve the highest GPA, Fakhrurazzi of Banjarmasin with GPA of 3.73 and Said Ahmad Djauhari of Kotabaru with GPA 3.80.
