Widi Hidayat

Widi Hidayat is one of the experts in accounting and auditing at Universitas Airlangga. There is no doubt that Widis work and track record in or outside campus of UNAIR have contributed to society. Since 1994 Widi has always served important positions at the university. At present the faculty member born in Karanganyar serves as the Dean of the Faculty of Vocational Studies, meaning that he is assigned to be captain in the faculty. Being a dean at a relatively new faculty is a challenge for the former Vice Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Business UNAIR. He is urged to develop an applied science that has been the mission of every study program of the faculty. Widi mentions that the students are trained in specific practice. This emphasizes on their expertise for the promising work opportunities. Their in-depth knowledge and skill lead them to have an expertise in a particular field, making them ready to compete in the workplace. Evidently, until now, after attending an internship program, the graduates receive an offer from the company. It means that the prospect of the graduates of the Faculty of Vocational Studies is promising.

When asked about the science of accounting that he masters, Widi explained that the prospect of this discipline is also great, especially in the field of auditing. Because all companies and government institutions definitely need accountants and auditors. Thus the demand for graduates in this field has never decreased, which has positive implications for economic growth. In addition to teaching, as a lecturer, Widi has also been active in conducting research and community services. His scientific works and publications center on applicative studies, particularly, in the field of auditing. Widi has been a frequent speaker in many workshops, symposia, and scientific seminars. He has become an invited speaker in many occasions. International seminars or symposia he has attended include “International Symposium: Toward Development in The New Era of The Holistic Economics” and “The International Seminar and Symposium on Implementation of Islamic Economics in The World as Alternative of Conventional Economic System”.
