FEB Building, UIN NEWS Online— Faculty of Economy and Business (FEB) Who are members of the Association of Islamic Business Economics Faculty or AFEBIS in Indonesia should move faster in terms of management and development both in terms of academic, administrative and human resources.

Because in terms of experience, other campuses are one step ahead of us,” he said.
Referring to UIN News Online, most of PTKIN have started to develop FEB with nomenclature of Faculty of Economics and Business or Faculty of Islamic Economics. These faculties offer diverse studies such as management, accounting, economics and development studies, sharia economics, and sharia banking.
