Marniati SE MKes was born in Lhok Nibong, East Aceh Regency on May 25, 1981, in a family that has a strong blend of Islamic dimensions and a high entrepreneurial spirit. Two basic family foundations that later formed Marniati’s personality when she grew up.
For Marniati, her parents really became the first madrasa in her life. It was from his family that he absorbed various knowledge and skills which then sharpened his vision and ability to handle various problems he faced. He “inherited” all of that from his father, Tgk M Yunus Saat and Nurhayati. Both of his parents are from Delima, Pidie Regency, an area known to have a high entrepreneurial spirit.
The lesson he learned was about the balance of life between ubudiyah and mu’amalat. About how to relate to Allah the creator and at the same time he gets guidance on how to navigate life. For example, he studied business from a school age when he had the opportunity to help his parents sell at a family-owned food stall. From here, Marniati has started to learn how to take notes and in the evening then calculate the amount of income that can be panned.
He completed his primary education to high school in his hometown of Lhok Nibong. In 1990 he was officially confirmed as a graduate of SDN 1 Lhok Nibong, followed later in 1993 he successfully completed his junior high education at SMPN 1 Lhok Nibong. Three years later, he completed his 12-year compulsory education trip at SMAN 1 Lhok Nibong. While at school, the woman who was married to Dedi Zefrizal ST (Chairman of the U’Budiyah Foundation) was active in various intra-school organizations such as the Intra-School Student Organization (OSIS) and extracurricular activities such as Scouts and the Pusaka Flag-Raising Troop (Paskibra). In fact, at the student council of SMAN 1 Lhok Nibong, he once held the position of secretary.
In the same year after completing high school education, Marniati then continued her education to a higher level. His parents approved his intention. He then solidified his steps to get a place in a state university even though he had to compete with other prospective students throughout Aceh and even nationally.
It didn’t take long for him to get a place at Unsyiah, the results of the UMPTN announcement that he passed at the Unsyiah Biology FMIPA. After one semester of studying in this department, Marniati felt uncomfortable. He felt that he had no chemistry with the field of science he was working on. As a result, he also tried new opportunities at UMPTN the following year, this time he graduated from the Accounting Program at the Faculty of Economics, Unsyiah.
In Accounting, Marniati seems to have rediscovered her scientific spirit and spirit which has naturally been attached to her; entrepreneurial spirit. During college, he lived with his brother in the shopping area of Jalan Panglima Polem, Peunayong. Here, he had the opportunity to hone his business intuition by helping with bookkeeping and finance at the distribution and sales outlets of his brother’s cell phone. This activity is often carried out after school activities. In addition to managing finances, he also takes care of human resource (HR) issues for the HP outlet employees.
Marniati, who is also the Deputy Chair of the Indonesian Women Entrepreneurs Association (IWAPI) Aceh, completed her undergraduate studies in 1999, after successfully defending her thesis entitled: The Effect of Good Corporate Governance Determination on Banking in Aceh.
In May 2005, Marniati married Dedi Zefrizal ST. Despite being in a very limited and deprived position after being hit by the earthquake and tsunami, both of them were filled with happiness. Their happiness was more complete after they were blessed with a child named Devin Caisario Zefrizal in 2006. Now Devin attends SD Bunga Matahari Internasional.
His career at STIKES U’Budiyah began after his husband, Dedi Zefrizal ST, who is also the Chairman of the U’Budiyah Foundation, invited him to take part in fixing STIKES after he was badly damaged by the earthquake and tsunami. Initially, he was entrusted as a staff in the administration and finance department plus a cleaning service who cleaned the classrooms in one of the shop houses (ruko) in the Lamnyong area, Banda Aceh on a daily basis.
His expertise in managing administration and finances made him later promoted to Assistant Chair II of STIKES U’Budiyah. At that time, the main tasks he carried out were increasing, not only handling administrative and financial matters but also recruiting lecturers to teach at U’Budiyah. As a young gur at the time, he realized that his existence in the world of education was still inexperienced and did not have a high reputation. That awareness turned out to be an encouragement to keep trying to be better. Until a moment came in 2007, when he first came up with the idea of establishing the U’Budiyah Hospital. With the full support of her husband, Marniati began to initiate the construction of the U’Budiyah Hospital. The idea was received positively by various groups, including the government, the private sector and the community. Even the banking sector also provides financing support as shown by Bank Syariah Mandiri. However, there was one thing that stuck at that time, the woman who is also the administrator of the Indonesian Public Health Association (IAKMI) does not have a health education background.
On that basis, then Marniati had to take a Master of Health study program with a concentration in Hospital Management at the University of North Sumatra (USU). Finally, the establishment of the U’Budiyah Hospital was realized on May 25, 2009, a few months after he finished his master’s program and coincided with his 28th birthday.
In the midst of her busy schedule of leading STIKES U’Budiyah, this woman who as a child dreamed of becoming a doctor often spends her spare time reading books on leadership themes and biographies of well-known figures from statesmen and successful entrepreneurs. The activity was carried out by seeking inspiration and experience from those who first achieved success with all the challenges that must be passed.
During the last three years leading STIKES U’Budiyah, Marniati, who is also the administrator of the Association of Indonesian Private Universities (APTISI) Aceh, has made many changes. For example, reviving the academic culture in U’Budiyah through a series of scientific seminars on health. The change was welcomed positively by the U’Budiyah Foundation, which then increased the intensity in boosting the physical development of the campus at the new campus in the Tibang Village area, close to the City Park Forest. And academically the proof of the change is the achievement of B accreditation for the D-III Midwifery Academy Program.
Marniati is also active in carrying out various innovations and breakthroughs for U’Budiyah, for example collaborating with various domestic and foreign higher education institutions. The results of this collaboration are stated in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Letter of Intent (LoI) which contain a series of programs such as cooperation in research and scientific publications, collaboration between libraries, double degree programs, scholarships for U’Budiyah lecturers. , digital TV program and cyber university.
U’Budiyah’s performance over the last decade finally accumulated in 2013, the year that will be written as U’Budiyah’s year of achievement. At almost the same time, U’Budiyah was able to win four awards respectively: (1) Certied Education and Educator Indonesia Award 2013 in the category of The Best Inspiring Person of the year from the Indonesian Record Forum to the Head of STIKES U’Budiyah; (2) Top Awards
10 Most Trusted School in the category of The most leading trusted Education School of the Year 2013 for STIKES U’Budiyah and Chairman of the U’Budiyah Indonesia Foundation Dedi Zefrizal ST from the Indonesia Achievement Center (IAC), and; (3) Platinum Indonesia Award 2013-2014 for U’Budiyah Hospital from the Indonesian Record Center. (4) Innovative Top Figures (5) Best Top Trusted School in The Best Favorite School of The Year category.
The achievements he wanted to achieve did not stop there. After struggling for a long time to fight for the status of U’Budiyah’s STIKES to become a university since 2007, Marniati can now be a little relieved because in 2014 the desire to upgrade U’Budiyah will soon be realized. U’Budiyah Indonesia University (UUI) operational permit will be issued soon. This was made possible after going through a long process from the stages of submitting proposals, presentations and visits from the Evaluator team of the Directorate General of Higher Education which took place on 21
last November 2013. With this change in status, UUI will later have five faculties consisting of the Faculty of Health Sciences,
Economics, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education, and Faculty of Engineering.
For her, all the achievements achieved so far cannot be separated from the help of Allah SWT, the support and prayers of her husband, parents and relatives as well as solid cooperation with the academic community of STIKES U’Budiyah, STMIK U’Budiyah and U’Budiyah Hospital. He is grateful as
A young teacher in the world of education in Aceh, he is able to contribute to the development of human resources in this area.
In the future, there are a number of major works to be completed, firstly how to realize the vision of making UUI a World Class Cyber University by 2025; second, printing 30 percent of U’Budiyah lecturers with the title of Professor; and third, placing UUI in the ranks of the Top 10 best Universities in Indonesia in the same year.
