After almost two years of preparation, the Faculty of Business Administration will be evaluated based on the following areas: Vision and Mission, Faculty, Curriculum and Instruction, Students, Library, Research, Laboratories, Administration, Community Service/Outreach, and other resources. The evaluation will take place on 1-2 August 2011 in the university . Aside from classroom observations and physical infrastructure (campus) visit, it will also undertake interview with the students, faculty, management, chairmen of the different sub-areas and members of the AQAC. The interview and ocular visit will validate the data and information provided earlier to PAASCU. It will also substantiate the written report with new developments and information that would vouch for the quality and excellence of the business program in particular and the university as a whole. During the conduct of evaluation, key officials from the University Grants Commission (UGC) will observe the evaluation process considering that this activity will be the first in the academia in Bangladesh. A series of meetings and orientations are being conducted by the AQAC with the faculty, students and nonacademic staff to ensure that the accreditation process is well understood and appreciated particularly the impact and benefits derived from this exercise. The whole university is looking forward to the success of this endeavor with the able support and participation of all those involved in the process. AIUB is leading the way to this important undertaking which the government has planned to implement the creation and operationalization of an Accreditation Council that would oversee and regulate quality higher education in the country.
