It turns out that Singapore's tertiary institution, established in 1981, has entered the top 50 in the world, because of what? Singapore brought in the Chancellor from America. Not only Singapore, China and also Arabsaudi to advance their universities also import foreign chancellors.

For this reason, it is necessary to make a leap and not just as usual (business as usual). Problems faced include budgeting and management.

"Because foreign chancellors have a good network in the world, the hope is to improve tertiary education in Indonesia. Therefore, we must improve the various related regulations, so that later there will be universities led by foreign chancellors. it went well, "Nasir told reporters in Jakarta, Tuesday (07/30/2019).

"We just mapped, which are the most ready, which are not and which universities are we targeting (the chancellor) from foreign countries. If there are many, two to five (universities with foreign chancellors) until 2024.

In 2020 we have to start, "said the Minister of Research and Technology Mohamad Nasir as quoted from the official release of the Ministry of Research and Technology (07/26/2019).

According to Menristekdikti, this foreign chancellor's recruitment step is to improve the ranking of Indonesian tertiary institutions in the 100 best universities in the world, according to him:

They were in development, I was at that time discussing with ministers from Singapore, what was its history so that it succeeded. "Chancellors from the United States and a number of lecturers are large. Those from standing are not yet known, now they can enter the top 50 in the world," said Minister Nasir.

3. World quality education

In the future, Minister Nasir also said that with foreign chancellors and foreign lecturers increasing the ranking of Indonesian tertiary institutions, Indonesian people would be closer to world-quality higher education. Menristekdikti exemplifies the large number of Indonesian people who have 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 to go there," Nasir said.

4. Ranking 100 world

Indeed, the heavy duty of foreign chancellors must be carried out. One of the tasks of this foreign chancellor is to improve the quality of state universities so that the ranking of these state universities can rise to a higher level. "(We will then challenge the prospective foreign chancellor) You can not increase the ranking of this tertiary institution to become the world's top 200. After that, the next top 150 is the world. After this the top 100 world.
