“Collaborative Based Learning (CBL) 2015-2019”
MM has built strategic positioning through its uniqueness based on collaborative learning since 2011, as outlined in Self Evaluation Report (SER) of MM FEB Unpad 2013 and the revised SER of MM FEB Unpad 2014. The uniqueness of MM FEB Unpad is formed by 7 components of Collaborative Based Learning (CBL), namely:
- CBL on Lecture,
- CBL on Research,
- CBL on Curriculum Development,
- CBL on Company Based Issue,
- CBL on Thesis Colloquium,
- CBL on Alumni Relationship Development and
- CBL on Soft Skills Development.
The explanation of the seven components of CBL can be seen in the:
#21.APPENDIX II School Education System – 5. Uniqueness in the School Research & Education
The seven-uniqueness is transformed in line with the development and demands of the educational industry environment inside and outside Indonesia. Accordingly, MM needs to align with those environmental changes in shaping its uniqueness. The changes that have been taken place namely:
- The 1st stage of transformation process (2015): from seven uniqueness transformed into four-merged uniqueness,
- The 2nd stage of transformation process (2016): from four uniqueness transformed into three-merged uniqueness, and
- The 3rd stage of transformation process (2017): from three-merged uniqueness transformed into three-main uniqueness
- The 4th stage of transformation process (2018): consistently maintain the three-merged uniqueness as main uniqueness of MM FEB Unpad
- The 5th stage of transformation process (2019): consistently enhncing the three-merged uniqueness as main uniqueness of MM FEB Unpad
The purpose of the transformation process is part of strengthening the uniqueness and distinct features developed by MM in accordance with the Vision and Mission that have been set. The Figures 5 depicts the transformation process for sharpening the uniqueness of MM. One of the MM’s uniqueness is establishing collaboration with companies and universities of overseas partner universities. It is proven that the Joint Seminar & Corporate Visits Program organized by MM in each batch become the excellence and uniqueness of MM. SWA Magazine, one of the largest offline and online business magazines has highlighted this MM’s overseas program in its magazine and its website with the titled as:
“Master of Management Program FEB Unpad Provides Solutions to Global Business Challenges”

The uniqueness of this program besides enriching the students’ knowledge by producing research that will be presented, also giving additional experiences especially by visiting large companies in Japan. The uniqueness for the students certainly lies in its intangible uniqueness where students can have a better view of things, and the management of time that can be imitated from Japanese citizens.
Students learn about the customs culture of citizens in Japan, culture of queuing, high tolerance, maintaining cleanliness and the uniqueness of using public transportation. In addition, students are also allowed to see how Japanese citizens in terms of marketing are bargaining, peddling their products, and showing culinary uniqueness. Of course this program will enrich students in terms of experience and knowledge that can be applied. Check Students Report in the following links:
In regards to maintaining the high quality implementation of this program, MM has done the satisfaction survey about the overseas program. The results of the survey can be seen at:

The research is started with the topic and supervisors proposed by the student. The MM program analizes the topic and confirms it to the proposed supervisors. The supervisors consist of 2 lecturers on related topic. After the acceptance from the supervisors, the research begins to conduct in certain time (normaly 6 months). In order to enhance collaborative process on research, the key findings and its research progress are recorded on a form namely “kartu kemajuan bimbingan” (research progress report) filled by the supervisors or the student and signed by supervisors.
- Collaborative Learning on Curriculum Development: This collaborative learning focuses on how to develop suitable curriculum based on contemporary business contexts and the needs of stakeholders i.e. Business Practitioners, Government, Professional Association, as well as student and lecturer.
