Abstract

In University of Indonesia, Faculty of Economics and Business is a pioneer for the adoption of English as medium of instruction (EMI) in the undergraduate (regular) program. This study aims to review the effectiveness of EMI through assessment of students’ academic performance and lecturers’ evaluation in classes that used EMI. Based on 2013 data, our study found that students’ performance in EMI classes, in general, is instead slightly significantly higher than in BMI (Bahasa Indonesia as Medium of Instruction) classes. Whether the students perform better in EMI than in BMI classes also vary across subject course. On the case of lecturers’ performance viewed from students’ evaluation (EDOM), in overall, there is no significant different in EDOM scores between EMI and BMI classes. Disaggregated into category of EDOM, our study found a higher performance of lecturers’ evaluation on EMI classes in comparison to BMI classes, only on the aspect of class management. From our study, there is no evidence that adoption of EMI may cause negative effect to students’ performances in understanding topic of the courses and or impedes lecturer teaching effectiveness.
