These changes make the college market and competition becomes more widespread than previously and the relative moving faster than the ability of universities to respond. Currently, there are ranking universities in the world of international standards by agencies recognized by the world. in 2011, not a single university in Indonesia recorded the world's top 50 universities in both versions Webometrics and the QS World University Rankings. This shows that the competitiveness of universities in Indonesia are still not strong enough in comparison with universities abroad that ultimately the competitiveness of these colleges will build the image of college. The image has a very important meaning for the institution.The method used in this study is descriptive and explanatory survey of a sample survey with a size of 100 foreign students.
