“I very much thank you to all of the resource persons and participants that took part in this activity because this MBKM is one of the PSTBI implementation's actions. Now, the preparation of this MBKM has attempted to meet the needs of the business world, industry, and the workplace, such as those from government and industry,” said Zulkarnaini.

According to Zulkarnaini, the level-transfer curriculum must accommodate new things, such as students being able to be outside the study program, a minimum of 40 credits, and a maximum of 60 credits

“Hopefully, this exercise will be beneficial, and we will be able to enhance the curriculum that we created after hearing from resource people.
