The history of Faculty of Administrative Science cannot be separated from the history of University of Brawijaya itself as it is a part of the university. University of Brawijaya, situated in the city of Malang, East Java Province, was first established on January 5, 1963, by Minister of Higher Education and Knowledge Decree number 1 of 1963 and later confirmed by Presidential Decree number 196 of 1963 issued on September 23, 1963.

It all began with the establishment of Faculty of Business Administration on September 15, 1960, with Drs. Soejekti Djajadiatma as its dean and Drs. Suparni Pamudji as the secretary of dean. At those days, both people also worked as lecturers at Civil Service Academy, Malang. On July 11, 1961, the President of the Republic of Indonesia granted the name University of Brawijaya which officially opened 4 faculties:

  • Faculty of Law
  • Faculty of Economics
  • Faculty of Business Administration
  • Faculty of Agriculture

In 1961, Drs. Ruspana, a lecturer at Civil Service Academy, was appointed as dean in order to replace Drs. Soejekti who was assigned to study in US.

On September 30, 1962, in order to comply with Act no. 22 of 1961 on Higher Education, the name Faculty of Business Administration was changed into Faculty of Public and Business Administrations. This faculty managed two departments, namely, Public Administration and Trade Administration Departments. An extension of the faculty was opened in Kediri, East Java Province, under the Minister of Higher Education and Knowledge Decree number 97 of 1963 since August 15, 1963. In later development, the Kediri branch was closed and moved back to the head office in Malang.

Despite a good progress on the university’s development, the latest country’s situation did not support for any academic performance due to the September 30th Rebellion by the Indonesian Communist Party that all activities were cancelled, particularly on April 2, 1966. An emergency action was, then, taken by the 083 Resort Military Commander with the issuance of a Decree number 021/IV/66 which regulated that the officials of University of Brawijaya must take the form of a presidium and set caretakers of its faculties’ dean. This decree was strengthened by the issuance of Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Knowledge Decree number 4538 of 1966. Soon later, the presidium worked to re-open the university on April 12, 1966. At that time, Drs. David Jats, M.A. was appointed as a caretaker of Dean of Faculty of Public and Business Administrations until September 16, 1966.

After that date, Officials of Faculty of Public and Business Administrations, University of Brawijaya, were as follows:

  • Dean: Drs. Soejekti Djajadiatma, M.S.P.A
  • Vice Dean I: Drs. Zamhir Islamy
  • Vice Dean II: Drs. Ganda Sufrihat
  • Vice Dean III: Drs. Niam Sovie

In 1971, concerning the latest situation and demands, the Faculty Senate decided to reformed the officials which resulted in the following structure:

  • Dean: Drs. Soejekti Djajadiatma, M.S.P.A
  • Vice Dean I: Drs. Taher Alhabsji
  • Vice Dean II: Drs. Zainal Arifin Achmady
  • Vice Dean III: Drs. Timotius Hartono

In 1976, two new concentrations were offered, namely, Local Government Administration under Public Administration Department and Accounting under Trade Administration Department. However, due to a jurisdictial obstacle, the Accounting concentration was forced to close. In the period of 1978-1982, the following officials led the faculty:

  • Dean: Drs. Taher Alhabsji
  • Vice Dean I: Drs. Moch. Ichsan
  • Vice Dean II: Drs. Abdul Rachman Soendjoto
  • Vice Dean III: Drs. Irfan Islamy
  • Vice Dean IV: Drs. Ismani H.P.

In 1979, the Diploma III Program in Secretaryship was opened to provide an opportunity to fine-tune the skills and abilities to meet the demands of an office. The Head of the Program was Drs. Niam Sovie. In later development, the following people took turns as the Head of the Program: Drs. Saiful Bahri, Drs. AFX. Marsudi, Drs. Ahmad Sapari, Dra. Fransisca Yaningwati, M.Si (1999), and Drs. Rustam Hidayat (2003). The latter officer was appointed as the Secretary of the Business Administration in 2007, thus Dra. Zahroh, M.Si was appointed as the Head of the Program to replace him.

  • Dean: Drs. Taher Alhabsji
  • Vice Dean I: Drs. Chalim Chalil Jusuf

In accordance with Indonesia’s Govenment Regulation number 27 of 1982 concerning Faculty Management in State Universities/Institutes as well as Presidential Decree number 59 of 1982 concerning the Organizational Structure of University of Brawijaya, the name Faculty of Public and Business Administrations was changed into Faculty of Administrative Science. The new name was coined during the Administration Symposium held by the faculty in 1974 and suggested by the Social Science Consortium on February 1982 held in Jakarta for the sake of better describing the body of knowledge being the focus of study and strengthening its development.

In 1995, Master’s degree program in Administrative Science was opened and managed under Graduate Program, University of Brawijaya, and Prof. Dr. Moch. Ichsan was assigned as the Head of the Program. Later, the society demanded a more specified Master’s degree program which divided the program into Master’s degree in Public Administration and Master’s degree in Trade Administration. The later program was officially offered not long after the idea of expansion first appeared; in 1995, it was approved by the General Director of Higher Education at Ministry of Education and Culture, and Prof. Dr. Bambang Swasto Sunuharyo, M.E was appointed as the Head of the Master’s degree programs in the period of 1996-2000. The following is the Heads of the program in different periods.

  • 2005-2009: Prof. Drs. Achmad Fauzi Dh. (Trade Administration Program)
  • 2009-now  : Dr. Kertahadi, M.Com. (Trade Administration Program)

A few months later, a permission from the General Director of Higher Education, Ministry of Education and Culture, to hold Master’s degree program in Public Administration was issued. The following is the Heads of Master’s degree program in Public Administration in different periods.

From 1996/1997 academic year, the non-regular Sarjana’s degree program was opened to accommodate professionals to earn a Sarjana’s degree with the same curriculum and syllabi as the regular program. The Head of the program was Drs. Bambang Supriyono, M.Si from 1997 to 2000. Then in 2001-2002 the Head of the program was Drs. Edy Yulianto, M.P. However, the program was forced to close with the issuance of Minister of National Education Decree number 28/DIKTI/Kep/2002, thus the program no longer officially existed since 2003.

In order to satisfy the demands for tourism professionals, in 1997 the Diploma III Program in Tourism was offered. The first Head of the program was Drs. I Nengah Sujana, M.Si, which was then replaced by Drs. Topowiyono, M.Si in 2003.

Since 2010/2011 academic year, under the regulation of the university, all diploma programs were moved and managed under the Vocational Program of University of Brawijaya. Therefore, from that on the Diploma Programs in Secretaryship and Tourism were officially closed.

In 1998, a Master’s degree program in Administrative Science was opened in order to produce scholars who would apply administrative science by means of interdisciplinary views, that is, public as well as trade administrations. The program continues to be the non-regular Master’s degree program.

In 2001/2002 academic year, Doctoral degree program in Administrative Science was officially offered. In its early development, the program was managed under School of Graduate Studies. However, according to Rector Decree number 030/SK/2006 dated February 26, 2006, the management of the program was sent back to Faculty of Administrative Science.

Since its opening, the program had two majors: Public Administration and Business Administration. The Head of the program in 2001-2005 was Prof. Dr. Irfan Islamy, MPA, while in 2005-now was Prof. Dr. Soesilo Zauhar, MS. In 2011/2012 academic year, a Doctoral degree program in Business Administration was established with Prof. Dr. Suhadak, M.Ec as the Head of the program. In other words, this program would stand as a separate Program. In the same academic year, the Doctoral degree program opened English-based class to accommodate overseas students, that is, from Thailand and Libya.

In 2004, a Tailor-Made Master’s degree program (13-month program) was opened under the cooperation between Faculty of Administrative Science and Ministry of National Development Planning. This program is still on until this day and puts emphasis on development planning major as a part of the Master’s degree program in Public Administration.

Since the Rector Decree that put all Master’ s and Doctoral degree programs back under their respective faculty, both programs have established important relationships with various government and non-government institutions, both domestic and overseas.

In later development, the Master’s degree program in Public Administration managed to establish Tailor-Made, Double Degree, and Community Empowerment programs working together with Ministry of National Development Planning, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Interior, and Ministry of National Education. The Double Degree program was offered by building a cooperation with several overseas universities, such as Takushoku University (Tokyo), Tohoku University (Tokyo), Keio University (Tokyo), Ritsumeikan University (Kyoto), Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University-APU (Kyoto), GRIPS University (Tokyo), Burapka University (Bangkok), and Prince Songkla University (Hat Yai, Thailand). This program enables student to earn two degrees at once from the faculty and from one of the overseas universities. Since 2011/2012 academic year, the Doctoral degree program also held cooperations with overseas universities, one of which was Burapka University. Up to now, both Master’s and Doctoral degree programs have received students from various countries.

In 2010/2011, within Business Administration Department, two Programs were opened, namely, Tax Science and International Business. Also, within Public Administration Department, Development Planning and Government Administration Programs were opened. In 2011/2012, a new program was established in Business Administration Department, that is, Hospitality and Tourism, while Public Administration Department also established a new program, that is, Library Science. Moreover, in the Master’s degree program, two new programs were established, that is, Master of Art in Higher Education and Master’s degree in Entrepreneurial Government.
