According to the Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education the steps to recruit foreign chancellors are to increase the ranking of Indonesian universities in the 100 best universities in the world.

1. It's been done naturally

According to the Minister of Research and Technology, importing foreign chancellors in leading public universities or public universities in a country is usually done abroad, especially in European countries, even in Asia such as Singapore also do the same. Higher education in Singapore moves forward because many lecturers and chancellors are foreign. as well as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia also do the same thing by hiring foreign lecturers and chancellors.
2. Acceleration of world rankings

"I take the example, the country that is closest to us, Singapore. Singapore has NTU, Nanyang Technological University. NTU was founded in 1981. They were under development, I was at that time a discussion with ministers from Singapore, what history was successful. Chancellors from America and some lecturers are big. They are not yet known from the stand, now they can enter the top 50 in the world, "said Minister Nasir.

3. World quality education

Nasir also said that with foreign chancellors and foreign lecturers increasing Indonesia's tertiary ranking, the Indonesian people would be closer to world-quality higher education. The Minister of Research and Technology gave an example of the many Indonesian people who had to go abroad, including NTU to get the best tertiary education. "Because the foreign chancellor and his collaboration in Singapore, (NTU) can bring students from America, Europe, and even Indonesia there," said Nasir.

4. Rank 100 in the world

One of the duties of the foreign chancellor is to improve the quality of PTNs so that the rank of PTN can rise to a higher level. "(We will challenge the foreign chancellor) You can not increase the ranking of this university to become the world's 200 largest. After that it will be reached, the next 150 will be the world. After this the world's top 100. It must be like that," explained the Menristekdikti.

Hopefully the discourse of Menristekdikti to bring in foreign chancellors can be carried out
