Tracer studies are used for accreditation purposes; the Directorate General of Higher Education (Kemdiknas) also uses tracer studies as a monitoring tool for adaptation of university graduates in Indonesia when entering the world of work. The purpose of this trace study is to find out the educational outcomes produced by our universities, to know the contribution of our universities to existing competencies in the world of work, and to monitor the adaptation of college graduates when entering the world of work as required by the Directorate General of Higher Education.

The benefits of the tracer study include a database for alumni & graduate users who are recorded based on study programs and batches (year of entry). Moreover, tracer study can be seen as important input / information for higher education development, as an evaluation tool to see the relevance between universities and the business / industry world, as input for curriculum improvement, and as material for building alumni networks.
