While addressing as the chief guest Ms. Selima Ahmed, MP said that we have lot of small entrepreneurs around the country and most of them I have observed closely. I found that they don’t have any business plan, they have no marketing plan, they have no production idea. They have only dream. And they become entrepreneur only depending on their hard working passion. If they get proper training on entrepreneurship they would succeed quickly. This diploma course would make them skill and create an opportunity . She thanked the organizing institutes for opening this course.
Addressing as the special guest Bangladesh Bank Governor Fazle Kabir said that most of our small entrepreneurs are becoming successful due to their unbelievable hard work. Especially the successes of women entrepreneurs are tremendous. But these entrepreneurs didn’t get any training on entrepreneurship. From now this diploma course will be helpful for them. He thanked Daffodil International University for coming forward to introduce the SME Diploma Course.
It may be mentioned that the duration of this diploma course would be 6 month. H.S.C passed candidate will be eligible to apply for this diploma course.
