Due to globalization, technological disruption, VUCA, new normal trends, etc, world situations are rapidly changing. Coping with changes in the education sector by developing 21st - century skills for learners alone might not suffice for human resource development to retain a good quality of life the present society and in the future. During the Economic 4.0 phase, the education sector is required to accelerate the construction of Desired Outcomes of Education 4.0 (DOE 4.0). This is a human resource development for students to exhibit immunity to combat problems with creative self-reliance and take care of themselves, their family, and society effectively. This is done using a development process based on Economic Efficiency. Educational administration is monitored using the KAPM technique (Knowledge, Attitude, Performance, Morality) with institutional administration processes following the Good Governance guidelines to create a quality culture in educational institutions and continually evaluate the learners' achievement of the DOE 4.0.
