The research has found substancial findings as follows; (1) In the process of study of the UNAND have good foundation to provide quality learning process. However, in practice the manajemen of learning process is not capable of providing the totality of learning process and focus only upon the hard skills and neglect the soft skills. (2) In regard with the curriculum used, the overall content is not capable of producing competent graduates with relevant knowledge and skills needed in the market. (3) The implementation of the curriculum in achieving of learning objectives cannot support the quality learning process. Lecturer members who have been considerd  as driving force in the learning are hanpared  with lacking qualification as needed and this affect the quality of learning process to be  provided to students.
