It is indeed a great news that Notre Dame University Bangladesh is going to unveil a renewed website soon which endorses the very long term vision and pragmatic perspectives of the university.

Notre University Bangladesh was founded in 2013 by the relentless endeavor of the Holy Father with the motto of, “The competence to see and the courage to act” and it states and iterates its guiding philosophy towards enlightening human minds with knowledge and wisdom. The university is situated at Motijheel, Dhaka with its peerless record of starting of a private university at its own permanent base where no other private university in Bangladesh started its operation from its own permanent base. Besides, the place where the university is located is nothing but the center of Dhaka city where are offices of all the Ministers and Secretaries known as Bangladesh Secretariat and it is also the prime education district as this area is surrounded by the most reputed college of the nation, “Notre Dame College" along with a good number of very reputed schools and colleges and the historical Race Course and Ramna Parks of the country. The campus of Notre Dame University is very pleasant and full with greeneries and blossoms and a few grand university buildings are in the making.

At present, there are five departments and out of them, the Department of Business Administration is the biggest department with BBA and MBA Programs. BBA Program is a four-year undergraduate coursework with internship program in its last semester whereas the MBA Program is 1 year for BBA graduate, 1.6 years for service holders preferably for the promising business executives with 2 – 4 years of experience, and 2 years for regular MBA. Both the programs have concentration in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Management, and Human Resource Management.

Employment opportunities include positions such as an Executive Assistant, Analyst Benefit/Payroll Clerk, or Marketing Assistant.

A bachelor’s degree can open up employment opportunities over a wide variety of careers. Management positions such as Sales Manager, Project Manager, Internship Manager, Business Manager, or Shift Manager become available. Along with those, people with bachelor’s degrees work in positions aimed at improving business operations. For example, a Business Operations Analyst studies a company efficiencies and recommends ways to improve it. Taking a job in accounting is also a path many choose.

With an MBA, people qualify for numerous management and leadership roles. These may include jobs such as Business Manager, Senior Business Strategy, or Director of Business Analysis. Those with an MBA also go on to work in VP roles in positions like the VP of Business Development and VP of Strategic Operations, which consists of implementing plans to improve business processes. People who specialize in concentrations such as finance can go on to work in a role as a Financial Manager or Chief Financial Officer. These roles oversee the financial and investment activities of a company and make sure they achieve their financial goals and projections. Although most people who graduate with an MBA go on to the corporate world, a small number may go on to be community college Instructors or Adjunct Assistant Professors.

Business administration majors typically work in offices or, in the case of those with a doctoral degree, in the classrooms of colleges and universities. While most two year colleges and four-year schools prefer individuals with doctoral degrees, some may hire individuals with MBAs as part-time instructors or teaching assistants.
