The discussion was carried out in two phases with the end in view of forging a Memorandum of Understanding(MoU) between the two educational institutions of higher learning. The discussion was held on July 13, 2019, in the Meeting Room of the Vice Chancellor. It was very encouraging and explored on the mutual benefits of the two institutions. The brainstorming covers a wide range of academic issues and strategies on how the partnership can possibly address the needs of both especially that of AIUB. Basically, the discussion centered on the concern and benefits of the students to widen and enrich their academic program; the desire to provide assistance to the academic and non-academic personnel to pursue their higher studies and capacity building; to engage in collaborative research which would benefit and enhance the research interest and capacities of the faculty to explore areas that will generate new knowledge that can serve as a basis for curriculum development and enrichment; exchange and sharing of resources, expertise and technologies which would make the academic programs more responsive and relevant to the needs of the stakeholders and to keep abreast of the current trends and demands of university education. After the substantive exchange, the Assistant Director of the Division of International Affairs, Mr. Nitesh Mahajan of LPU presented the panoramic view of the university, its infrastructure, modern facilities and instructional equipment/tools, policies and available opportunities. Mr. Mahajan is accompanied by Mr. Tanvirul Islam Mahim, ACCA, an Immigration and Income Tax Consultant a partner based in Bangladesh. On the other side of the panel representing AIUB are the VP Academics and Dean, Faculty Business Administration, Prof. Dr. Charles C. Villanueva; Prof. Dr. Tazul Islam, Dean Faculty of Arts and Social Science; Ms. Farheen Hassan, Director, BBA Program and Ms. Shama Islam representing the Office of Students Affairs and coordinator of international partnerships with MoU. This prospective partnership augurs well to the ongoing thrust of AIUB focusing on the quality, excellence and continuous development of the faculty, non-academic officers and students of AIUB.
