Simple and to the point - ISDEV welcomes the delegates from the two universities.
The Dean of Economic Faculty, Universitas Wijaya Putra, Dr. Soenarmi, SE., MM and the Dean of Economic Faculty, Universitas Yos Soedarso, Drs. Ec. A Rochim Sidik, MM with their entourage paid a visit to ISDEV on 29 March 2016. They came with a mission. Their simple but important mission nonetheless was to develop cooperation through the building of ukhuwwah so as to promote mutual interests among these three institutions.
Prof. Syukri presenting to the delegates a general overview on ISDEV.
The delegations form Surabaya, Indonesia were welcomed by ISDEV Director, Professor Dr. Muhammad Syukri Salleh. Prof. Syukri  took the opportunity to introduce the delegates to ISDEV by providing a detailed overview of ISDEV which included the various academic courses offered, past and on-going research that ISDEV is embarked in as well as ISDEV plans for the future. 
Maximising the time with ISDEV Director, the delegates from the two institutions took a very
active part in sealing the mutual cooperation among the three institutions.
Based on the briefing, they were impressed with the various achievements ISDEV had accomplished. They expressed their keenness to exemplify and make ISDEV a reference point in managing the administration of their faculty whether academically or in the spirit of glorifying Islam that ISDEV upholds. They were also keen to establish cooperation between ISDEV and their institutions.

As a first step towards realising the collaboration between these parties, the three institutions agreed to organize a conference that is scheduled to be held sometime in September 2016. Universitas Wijaya Putra will organize a conference with the main theme on Islamic Research Methodology with Prof. Syukri and Dr. Shahir Akram Hassan as the keynote speakers of the conference. Meanwhile, Universitas Yos Soedarso is slotted to organize a conference on Islamic Management with its two key notes speakers being Prof. Syukri and Dr. Fadzila Azni Ahmad.
A moment to be recorded in the annals of the three institutions.
It is ardently hoped the organization of these two conferences will mark the beginning of further cooperation of these two institutions with ISDEV.
