The higher education system in Indonesia can be considered not only as an important source of developing knowledge in the country but also could create favourable living conditions for the country. Therefore, it is not surprising that enrollments in higher education continue to expand. Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a method to evaluate the technical efficiency of production units which have multiple input and output. The higher learning institution considered in this paper is Min Aceh province of Indonesia. This research framework of this research is DEA, with the bounded output.  Accordingly, we present some important differences in efficiency performance of higher education institute. Finally, we will discuss the effort from these departments to become efficient.
