Visit from Kyungdong University
Visit from Kyungdong University. Delegates from Kyungdong University (KDU) South Korea visited Telkom University on June 25, 2019. The representatives of Telkom University were the Vice Rector I for Academic Affairs of Telkom University Dr. Dadan Rahadian, ST., MM, International Office, Dean’s Secretary of Faculty Communication and Business, Head of Administration Business Study Program, Director of PSAL and Assistant Manager of International Class Academic Office (ICAO). Meanwhile, our partner representatives, the Kyungdong University, were the President of KDU, Lee John Kyu, Chaewon Jung, and Edward Angstrong. This visit was not Kyungdong’s first visit to Telkom University. Back then, Kyungdong University had visited a cooperation agreement with Telkom University in 2016.
The main agenda of the visit was to discuss about any possibility of collaboration between Telkom University and Kyungdong University. President Lee John Kyu offered several programs to collaborate with Telkom University. One of them is an agreement of double degree program which allows the student to hold a full credit transfer. In addition, the students could be transfered to some majors such as Korean Studies, Business Administration, Smart Computing and Hotel Management. This program can be implemented as soon as the MoU has been signed. By this agreement, there will be an opportunity to carry out another collaboration with 25 universities.
The accepted students joining the program offered, will experience the international academic atmosphere in several fields of study. Moreover, the opportunity of self-development for students is very wide open. Thereby, it can encourage to have more student mobility.
Basically, Telkom University is open in the possibility of cooperation offered by Kyungdong University. They hope to immediately sign this collaboration in the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) so that they can implement the programs they have agreed. Absolutely, through this collaboration, it is expected to bring benefits to both universities in the future.(IO)***
