Strong linkage between the corporate sector and academia is an important tool to tackle the tough challenges a country faces. Despite the cultural differences between university and industry, the mutual benefits from cooperation between these organizations have long been recognized.
AIUB has always been a step ahead as compared to other institutions. We have always maintained a strong link with industry leaders and managers and from time to time and have asked for their feedback to be incorporated in our programs. Keeping this mindset in view, American International University – Bangladesh (AIUB) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Entrepreneurship Organization (EO) GSEA on December 19, 2019.
EO is the only global network exclusively for entrepreneurs. EO helps leading entrepreneurs learn and grow through peer-to-peer learning, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and connections to experts. For the year 2019-20, AIUB has joined hands with EO as a Strategic Partner, under which AIUB will provide support and assistance of various types to conduct this event exclusively for the students.
The agreement was signed by Dr. Charles C. Villanueva, Vice President, Academics, AIUB and Mr. Mike Kazi, GSEA Chair, EO Bangladesh, on behalf of AIUB and EO GSEA respectively.
Mr. A. K. Nazmul, Associate Professor, Faculty of Business Administration, and Ms. Farhana Sultana, Chapter Manager, EO Bangladesh were the witnesses to this agreement.

Khan, Director, Office of Student Affairs, and Ms. Hafsa Maryam, Convener, Department of Management & HRM.
