Relevant subject benchmark statements

Domestic benchmarks of UPE are

- UPE-Universitas Gajah Mada, Yogyakarta


About eighty percent of UPE curriculum contents is similar to those two UPE due to KKNI and APSEPI (formerly Indonesian Department of Economic Development Consortium). The differences are in local contents and in specific competencies.
