Abstract


Universitas Pamulang (UNPAM) which is one of the biggest universities in Indonesia has got many International cooperations with foreign universities and has conducted many international conferences to meet its vision and mission. Some of them are from the United States of America, Korea, and Malaysia in collaboration with University College of Yayasan Pahang. In addition to this, UNPAM managers who manage the university who are the board of directors have to be professional to communicate and negotiate in English, especially to embrace this industrial revolution (ir 4.0) Descriptive Qualitative research was applied by conducting direct observation, interview and distributing questionnaires. The data were collected to get a clear picture of the current situation. Therefore, designing English Materials is a need to prepare the group of professional managers to be good at using English in their job setting. Needs analysis was done by interviewing them to see their specific needs. The result of the research has shown that (93,3%) of participants said they need English in order to build networking and discussion with foreign guests. Some 86,7% participants need to speak English fluently, and 76,7% said they need English in their Job. Interesting topics related to the managers' needs such as using language functions in formal situations, in meetings, and in giving presentations are designed to fulfill their needs. In a meeting managers deal with giving and asking questions, expressing ideas, interrupting in using polite language. Hence, the materials for speaking class can propose to the professional managers in using English very well which is called English for Occupational Purposes (EOP).
