The aim of this research is to describe the achievement and satisfaction of teachers as users of the Independent Study or Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM) program in Indonesia. Additionally, this study reveals problems related to implementation, including the benefits, obstacles, and expectations of teachers towards improving future execution of the MBKM program. Simple statistics were used for data processing and presented through descriptive analysis. Case study data was collected through questionnaire dissemination and literature review. The questionnaire was randomly distributed through an online g-form to 45 state and private university lecturers in Indonesia, while literature review sources included journal articles, MBKM guidelines, online news, and other internet sources. The results of the data analyzed showed that out of 45 respondents, approximately 56% responded positively, with the achievement of the program categorized as good and a satisfaction rate of 73%. However, around 27% were dissatisfied, revealing problems related to system obstacles and suboptimal program management. This research is important for program managers and government policymakers, as it provides input towards improving Indonesia's education quality and serves as an example of MBKM program implementation in other countries.
