Development Economics Program

I. DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS STUDY PROGRAM IN BRIEF

Metaphorically speaking, the Study Program in Development Economics is like the captain of a ship, who will determine the direction of a country’s economy. This program is concerned with all the foundations or conceptual frameworks in economics (micro and macro) and analytical abilities, both qualitative and quantitative. It also deals with the branches of economics such as public economics, institutional economics, international economics, monetary economics, regional economics, mineral economics and so forth. Development economics is an increasingly interesting course worth taking, particularly with the establishment of free trade regions between countries (AEC, AFTA, ACFTA, APEC, etc) as well as the world free trade (WTO). Economic development in developing countries has also recognized the role of Development Economics in the formulation of politics and the solution of problems encountered by a country in efforts to achieve a higher level of prosperity. Economics is also used as a basis of analysis in the process of building economic democracy through the implementation of regional autonomy.

II. HISTORY

When it was established in 1993, this program was originally called IESP (Study Program in Economics and Development Studies). In 2003, however, in compliance with the Decision of the Directorate General of Higher Education, it was renamed EP (Development Economics). The program welcomes upper secondary school leavers who wish to become effective and reliable economists with the competency to analyze microeconomic and macroeconomic issues, as well as the ability to make the right decision from a choice of several alternative solutions.

V. PLUS POINT

The Development Economics study program is part of UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta that has been devotedly engaged in education since 8 October 1959, and is actually a living monument of all the veterans of freedom fighters. Apart from the competency in their chosen concentration, the alumni of the Development Economics study program inherit the moral values of freedom fighters. The system, the instruments, and the teaching/learning process are oriented towards producing graduates with a personality characterized by discipline, tenacity, creativity, excellence, and nationalistic orientation.

VI. STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Student activities of co-curricular nature are organized under the HMI (Department Students’ Association). Its activities include scholarly reasoning/academic events (discussions, contests of scientific works, visits to institutions), and social events, giving more emphasis on academic pursuits. Activities related to development of interests and talents are arranged under UKM (Student Activities Unit). The University has 23 student activities units that include, among others, arts, soccer, volley, and choir. In addition, students are provided with opportunities to gain work experience (and receive remuneration/pocket money) from research activities conducted by PPE (economic study and development).
