The University of Pembangunan Nasional (UPN) “Veteran” Yogyakarta postgraduate program was offered after UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta had been operating for 43 years. The opening of the UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta postgraduate program (PPs) was preceded with the seminar/workshop, Postgraduate Program Opening Preparation, on 12-13 December in 1995, which coincided with a series of events for the UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta 37th anniversary. This seminar was opened by Prof. Ir. Yutata Hardiwardaya (the Director of Private Higher Education, Directorate General of Higher Education at the Department of Education and Culture), which was attended by lecturers from ITB, UGM, UNPAD and UNDIP as well as practitioners from a number of national and multinational companies. At that time, it was decided that UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta still needed to raise the quality of lecturers before opening the postgraduate program.
In 1999, a UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta postgraduate program opening preparation team was established that was headed by Prof. Dr. Ir. C. Danisworo, M.Sc. The postgraduate program at the University of Pembangunan Nasional “Veteran” Yogyakarta was officially opened based on the Director General of Higher Education Decree No: 2820/D/T/2001, dated 30 August 2001 on Permission to Operate Programs on Mining Engineering, Geological Engineering and Agri-Business Management. This was then followed with the Director General of Higher Education Decree No: 3101/D/T/2001, dated 26 September 2001 on Permission to Operate a Masters in Management Program.
Based on these decrees, the University of Pembangunan Nasional “Veteran” Yogyakarta began taking registrations for prospective students in December 2001 – January 2002 for the four study programs, namely, Masters of Management (MM), Masters of Mining Engineering (MTA), Masters of Geological Engineering (MTG) and Masters of Agri-Business Management (MMA). The inaugural lecture for the University of Pembangunan Nasional “Veteran” Yogyakarta postgraduate program was held in the Masters of Management program on 4 February 2002 with a lecture from Prof. Dr. Suhardi Sigit titled “Labor Resources and Issues”. Following, the Masters in Mining Engineering program was initiated on 3 June 2002 with a lecture from Prof. Dr. Kusnadi Hardjasumantri, S.H., M.L. titled, Environmentally Oriented Sustainable Development: An Overview from a Legal Aspect. The Masters in Agri-Business Management program held its inaugural lecture by Prof. Dr. Ir. Endang Gumbira Sa’id, M.A., on 14 June 2002 that was titled, Raising Professionalism of Human Resources in Agri-Business Based Agriculture.
The Masters of Geological Engineering program inaugural lecture was held on 14 June 2003 simultaneously with first lecture of the second intake for the Masters in Mining Engineering and Masters in Agri-Business Management programs. This was marked with a lecture by Prof. Dr. Ir. Bunasor Sanim, M.Sc., titled, Sustainable Agri-Business Development and Natural Resources as a Solution to Indonesia’s National Crisis in Facing the Post IMF Era.
The Masters of Economics of Development program (MEP), obtained permission to operate from the Director General of Higher Education, No: 3186/D/T/2004 dated 19 August 2004. The inaugural lecture of the Masters of Economics of Development was given by Prof. Dr. Gunawan Sumodiningrat M.Ec; Ir. Tataq Wiranto, M.Sc.; and Ir. Bambang SP, MPA on 4 June 2005 and was titled “Integration of Local Finance and Development”.
On entering the third year, the Masters of Economics of Development changed its name to the Masters of Economics (MIE) based on the Director General of Higher Education, the Department of National Education, Decree Number: 163/DIKTI/Kep/2007 dated 29 November 2007. Up until now, this masters program has developed and progressed very rapidly in terms of student numbers and the number of alumni that continue to increase. The program is also now accredited.
