This meeting continues the collaboration between Swiss German University and the University of Missouri, Kansas City (UMKC) for the Fast-track Program Bachelor to Master. SGU students participating in this program will be awarded a bachelor’s degree from SGU and a master’s degree from UMKC.

The Fast Track Program aims to benefit students by providing an accelerated pathway that seamlessly integrates undergraduate and master’s studies. This unique initiative expedites the academic journey and offers a cost-effective alternative to pursuing separate bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the USA. This program ensures a smooth transition, building on the foundational knowledge acquired during a bachelor’s degree. Further, this program has open career opportunities after one year of living in the US.

This collaboration represents Swiss German University’s commitment to continually fostering partnerships, particularly to enhance the quality of global education and science-technology knowledge.

The University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) is the largest in the Kansas City region. It offers 125 academic disciplines to provide its students with opportunities to build global careers, including through the School of Science and Engineering (SSE).

Dr. Kevin Truman, Dean School of Science and Engineering from UMKC stated “It’s a great opportunity for Indonesian students to get enriched with US culture while bringing their own culture. This collaboration will have great opportunities and things to enhance the students’ careers and education.”
