To the freshmen, Prof. Nasih reminded them to the important task they should do. Freshmen are expected to have plans of their studies.
“If you are still not sure with your thesis and dissertation research, it means your study is not well-planned. As intellectuals, we must plan them all because our fate is determined from our contribution to make changes,” said Prof. Nasih.
Furthermore, the professor of Faculty of Economics and Business UNAIR also expected them no only write their theses or dissertations. They were expected to work on their research publications in reputable journals as well.
