About Master of Pengembangan Sumber Daya Manusia (MPSDM)

The Master of Pengembangan Sumber Daya Manusia (MPSDM) Study Program was established in 1999 based on Surat Keputusan Direktorat Jenderal Pendidikan Tinggi (Dirjen Dikti) Departemen Pendidikan Nasional Republik Indonesia Number 86 / DIKTI / Kep / 1999 March 26, 1999.

When organizing a learning program for the first time in the 1999/2000 academic year, until now MPSDM has been attended by students who come from various regions in Indonesia and have diverse background of professions and also diverse background of Bachelor’s Degrees.

The management of MPSDM was originally under the Postgraduate School Program Universitas Airlangga until the 2007/2008 academic year. Based on Surat Keputusan (SK) Rektor Universitas Airlangga Number 5788/J03/PP/2007 July 30, 2007 regarding the management of the Master Program at Universitas Airlangga, the management of MPSDM was under the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of Universitas Airlangga. In 2011, it reverted in the Postgraduate School Program as a consequence of the claim that the MPSDM is a multidisciplinary program and still has 3 (three) study interests, namely Industrial and Business MPSDM Study Interest, Government MPSDM Study Interest, and Family & Community MPSDM Study Interest. MPSDM has been accredited by Badan Akreditasi Nasional Perguruan Tinggi (BAN-PT) in 2003. Based on SK BAN-PT Number 071/BAN-PT/AK-II/S2/XI/2003, MPSDM was accredited with a grade of B. Additionally, based on SK BAN -PT Number 006 / BAN-PT / Ak-VII / S2 / VII / 2009, MPSDM was re-accredited with the result status of B rank.
