Capital market has a significant value in economic development. Investment activities in the stock market in Indonesia are still in preliminary stage and have not reached the intended objectives. One of the problems is the lack of information and lack of knowledge in the society. This was caused by the limitation of Knowledge dissemination from the stock market itself. The academies seem not ready to face the fast changing industry. It is proved by the curriculum that focuses mainly to the conservative economic knowledge such as banking or insurance. This caused a gap in competence between industry into expectation and academic perception. One of the many programs that could bridge the gap is to bring the industry into campus, such as having gallery of stock and commodity exchange, which facilitates the students to have knowledge and practical skills. To do continuous quality advancement, it is important to evaluate whether our programs in the stock and commodity exchange corner at Widyatama University (active 2004) could raise the knowledge and practical skills of our students who are actively involved in it and who are not. And describe whether the programs in the stock and commodity corner could sufficiently give value added to the students.
