Universitas Surabaya (Ubaya) eagerness to standardization should be appreciated because it shows Ubaya commitment to the MoU signed on 18 November 2009 which previously initiated by preliminary discussion and socialization on 19 October 2009. Less than one month of the MoU signing, on 12 December 2009, Ubaya in cooperation with BSN conducted a socialization session to standardization subject lecturers. The session was participated by 80 Ubaya lecturers. More than that, Ubaya also actively involves with promotion activities of Standardization and SNI in East Java province. On SNI Thon session (SNI Helmet Campaign, Surabaya-Jakarta), for example, Ubaya became a session host. Besides, on 22 November 2009, Ubaya community even visited malls to promote SNI. And many more.

Not without reason, UBAYA includes standardization as a compulsory subject, on his opening speech at socialization session for Ubaya lecturers, A. Adji Prayitno S (Ubaya Vice Rector for Administration and University Development) said that The development level of a particular country can be examined from the development of the standard in that country. “The development of the standard can be examined from the awareness of society to the standard. I took the example of China and South Korea. They become world’s economic giant because they concern to standard and standardization education. As a matter of facts, in 2007 Jilliang University (China) received an ISO Award for Higher Education. Meanwhile, South Korea has been doing standardization education from pre-elementary level (early childhood),” he said. He also agreed that standard is the second “language” after money in an era of global trade and globalization. And all of this in line with Ubaya vision, which is to become “a World Class University” where one indicator is a world class quality of Ubaya graduates or in other words, Ubaya graduates are expected to be able to compete in global market and one crucial factor to achieve that is by understanding a standard.

On Ubaya book titled “Toward an Internationalization” written by Nanang Krisdinanto, there is an illustration to describe globalization.  Globalization happens when Princess of Wales (Lady Diana) and his partner from Egypt got an accident in a road tunnel in France. Their German made Mercedes-Benz car with the Netherlands made engine crashed into the wall of the tunnel. That car was driven by a Belgium driver who graduated from high school in Scotland. They eluded Italian paparazzi that drove Japanese motorcycle.  Also go into piece was their made in Sweden mobile phone. An American doctor with his medical staffs from Philippine did resuscitation attempts using Brazilian medicines (but unfortunately, it failed) and at this moment, YOU (as Indonesian citizen) are reading this book….
