Ma Chung UniversityMa Chung University at a Glance

Ma Chung University is one of the youngest private universities in Indonesia. It is located on a highland of Malang city at Villa Puncak Tidar Street N-01. The beautiful scenery of mountains can be closely enjoyed in front of this university. And since it is far from the rush of town, it provides a calm, clean, and green environment which is appropriate for study activities. In this conference, we will invite all participants to take a "Campus Tour" to know closer and enjoy our beautiful university.
