Learning in a magister program is a process of maturing the knowledge to keep growing and developing in the changing era. The elaboration, exploration, and application of the knowledge is a part of methods to signify the development of knowledge and science. In ISBI Bandung Postgraduate Program, the indicator of the quality of the knowledge is one of them explored through Gladi Nalar. Gladi Nalar is the name for collaboration program of ISBI Bandung Postgraduate Program with some universities in the last four years. This program is for the second semester of Postgraduate students for preparing them to share their researh ideas in a scientific atmosphere, either nationally or intenationally. Besides, this is also as “Silaturahmi and Wisata Ilmiah” to strengthening the academic and cultural bond among the students.
