After the event opened with the national anthem of Indonesia Raya and the Gadjah Mada Hymn, the Dean of FEB UGM, Prof. Dr. Didi Achjari gave his speech. “Hopefully, today we won’t just chat.

Good alumni will make us proud; if we are also good, we are always mentioned by alumni out there. So, there will be no separations, we will always work together to create the best programs and make the alumni proud,” said Amin.
