Assalaamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

Praise and gratitude we pray to Alloh SWT whos has bestowed His mercy and grace on us all. Shalawat and greetings may remain for our Prohet Muhammad, his family, and all of his followers, Aamiin.

Alhamdulillah the Economic Development department with its concentration of Islamic Banking and Finance (EKPI) had achieved the A score for the accreditation with total score 370 based on BAN-PT No. 1618/SK/BAN-PT/Akred/S/VIII/2016. This achievement is the result of the hard work of all components in the Economic Development department, Faculty of Economics and Business of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta and also the trust of the society who send their children to this department.

The initiative to open the Economic Development department with its concentration on Islamic Banking and Finance (EKPI) is based on an awareness of the importance in preparing qualified human resources to engage in the economic and Islamic finance. The department also prepares its students to be reliable in mastering both qualitative and quantitative analysis tools because it is worth a lot especially when they work as analysts of financial economic and development planning in either state or private institution.

The efforts to improve the quality is continuously done, not only in the curriculum, human resources, but also other supporting facilities as well. So, hopefully the public interest to study in the Economic Development department will countinuously increase. It can be realized based on several principles; sincerity, seriousness and togetherness of all components in the department. May Alloh SWT always guides us to be istiqomah in carrying out all of the activities sincerely to get His blessings.

Wassalaamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.
