Management Department was established on 24th Rabi-Ul-Akhir 1401 H, or on 1st Mrch 1981. Thanks God, based on the Decree of the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education No.222/SK/BAN-PT/Ak-XVI/5/XI/2013, Management Department has been accredited A (very good). In addition, in 2018 the department will propose re-accreditation  with the spirit to maintain A accreditation. The acquisition of A accreditation in university level (Accreditation of Higher Education Institution)  in early 2018 has become a tremendous boost and excitement  for Management Department to keep on improving.
