The Chancellor of the University Muhammadiyah of Sumatra Utara, DR Agussani, MAP released as many as 16 students from several faculties to take part in a professional certified internship program in a number of companies belonging to State-Owned Enterprises.
“This apprenticeship program attended by UMSU students is nothing but the result of follow-up signing of the UMSU Memorandum of Understanding with a number of BUMNs,” he said accompanied by Deputy Chancellor 3, Dr. Rudianto, MSi, Saturday (2/23).
According to the Chancellor, sending UMSU students to take part in this profession-certified internship program is not the first time. Previously a number of UMSU students had also carried out professionally certified internships in several BUMNs.

Through this activity, students can have more opportunities to prove the results of learning on campus while at the same time gaining experience and honing skills.
Students of this profession certified internship are selected after going through the selection process. There are as many as 16 students selected for internships in a number of BUMNs including PT Timah, BRI and Bank Mandiri and Pelindo. It is planned that in the future, UMSU will also explore the apprenticeship program by establishing a joint meeting between ANTARA’s National Budget.
The Chancellor was grateful that the UMSU students had the opportunity to be accepted to take part in a professional certificate internship program.

“I hope that students who take part in the internship program can carry out the trust given by truly carrying out the responsibilities given. Take care of your attitude and behavior because students of the apprentice are ambassadors who are expected to be able to maintain their personal and institutional reputation, “he said.
This professional certified internship program is part of an effort to improve the quality of human resources in this case students to have more readiness after graduating from college and holding a bachelor’s degree.
