Experts urge government to turn DSE into public university

Eminent citizens of the country have urged the government to turn the Dhaka School of Economics (DSE) into a specialised public university.

The request was made at the reception for new undergraduate students and farewell for the departing students of the institution held at the office of the Economic Reporter’s Forum (ERF) on Saturday.

If DSE becomes a full-fledged university, it’ll safeguard monetary, fiscal and external economy and develop more human resources through capacity building with modern inductive learning techniques, said speakers.

Pranab Saha, editor of DBC News was present as the chief guest. Economist and IT expert Professor Muhammad Mahbub Ali was the session chair of the event, while Shaheda Parveen Trisha, Vice Chairperson of Prime Bank Investment Limited, was the special guest.

Speaking as chief guest, Pranab said that there is no alternative to create entrepreneurs for the development of the country.

“If Masters and PGD courses are introduced for professionals through online in the current scenario like other Global universities, it will be more helpful in creating entrepreneurs,” Pranab said.

Talking as a special guest, Trisha said that to be an entrepreneur, concentration and dedication are required along with hard work.

Later, she encouraged the students with a motivational speech.

The event was followed by a cultural programme.
