Related to this achievement, the Chairman of Muhammadiyah Central Board, Prof. Irwan Akib expressed his gratitude for the ranking by AppliedHE as an international agency for university ranking. “From this achievement, of course, we hope that it will trigger us to continue to develop ourselves. And what has been achieved by Universitas Muhammadiyah Purwokerto (UMP) and Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) is not only the pride of the two campuses, but also our prideful achievement,” said Prof. Irwan Akib said on Friday (24/2).

With this achievement, Prof. Irwan Akib has high hopes to develop more for future achievements. On its official website quoted in Purwokerto, Friday (23/2/2023) mentioned, AppliedHE Private University rankings only rank private universities, highlighting the quality of teaching & learning, employability, and research, as well as community engagement, internationalization, and institutional reputation.
