Dr. Md. Sabur Khan said in his welcome speech that many universities of developed countries are now including the success history of their successful entrepreneurs in their academic syllabous. But, we don’t have yet that kind of culture and practice in our country. Daffodil International University is trying to execute this culture in Bangladesh and introduce Industry-Academia lecture series as part of this endeavour.
The lectures of these successful entrepreneurs will be compiled and published as a book which will act as a reference book for the students of Business Administration, Economics and Entrepreneurship Development department. These books will help the students to learn and understand their gained academic knowledge in perspective of real life experience. Initiative has been taken to develop individual video documentaries on these successful entrepreneurs from Career Development Center (CDC) of Daffodil International University.
