The Purpose behind East Delta University

The true purpose behind East Delta University is to unleash human potential that exist in Chittagong and in Bangladesh. EDU will provide the people of Chittagong and Bangladesh an academic environment where they can excel and be competitive in the global economy. The people of Chittagong do not have to leave their home for quality education. Quality education will be available right at their doorstep. In fact we believe that very soon the University will be the center of Chittagong renaissance, attracting scholars and business from all over the world.

So what makes this University exceptional and unique?

1. Uncompromising commitment to quality. This is a firm commitment not just a cliché.

2. Selective in student intake. The University will work hard with local schools and Universities to help create an environment that makes our local students competitive and capable of handling global competition.

3. Selective in faculty delivering the course. EDU will choose only the best faculty available to teach classes. We define best in terms of teaching, academic research and commitment to a social responsibility of making this a better nation. In addition the University will use a great number of foreign faculties to deliver the MBA and MA in economics class. The introduction of foreign faculty has two purposes: (a) to make up for the knowledge gap that may exist locally and (2) to expose our students and the academic world to foreign business thinking. No one can deny the need for such interactions in today’s global economy.

4. Providing an attractive and enabling physical environment for advancement facilities of knowledge; Great library, modern lab, outstanding computer.

5. Modern curriculum reflecting global not just local education needs.
