Abstract: Indonesian universities appearance and recognition in the international environment is left behind some neighbouring countries, for example, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. In line with the policy of the Indonesian government to accelerate the international recognition of Indonesian universities, Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) which is relatively younger than other public universities in Indonesia, has aggressively progressed to achieve its vision to be a world-class university. Some accelerating strategies have been implemented, more particular with regard to research and innovation, academic quality and international collaboration. To do so, the university put more weight on the strengthening of integrity, ethics, loyalty, commitment and sense of belonging which create synergy between faculty members and administrative staffs. It eventually leads to a more conducive academic environment and organisational culture which is the basis for internationalisation strategy. On the other hand, the university has also released some technical policies and strategies for the internationalisation process.
