Facility management

I've been thinking about my future, what i'm gonna do for tomorrow, for my life, to enhance my career. Since i was working in a facility management company, now i'm really interesting to learn about it more comprehensively.

Have you ever been heard about facility management?

Let me tell you a little bit about this, every organization uses buildings of some sort and their occupation incurs recurrent costs for rent, rates, cleaning, energy consumption, water, security, etc, amounting in time to more than the capital cost of creating the buildings in the first place. Facility Managers have the responsibility of ensuring that their employers’ premises assist them in fulfilling their core business objectives, retaining their capital value through appropriate maintenance, as well as obtaining value from their day-to-day operating costs. This program recognises that the facilities manager requires an understanding of business finance and management information as well as the technical areas of buildings. Emphasis is placed on understanding the strategic objectives of the organisation, and the way that facilities contribute towards their realisation.

then i start to searching about facility management pstgraduate, and what i found is, no university in Indonesia had facility management as a major. University who has a facility management major is University of Arizona in USA, Saxon university and the nearest university that i can apply is University of Malaya in Malaysia, they had a post graduate Master of science (Building) and facility management as a research area. Hemmmm well it's better then nothing i think.
