Amid the changing nature of knowledge and information, students must prepare themselves to keep on learning and become “effective and ethical” leaders to overcome challenges ahead, says an expert, reports UNB.

“If you have the capacity to keep on learning, you will be in a very good position both from economic point of view and also as a human being,” Aga Khan Development Network Director of Academies Salim Bhatia told UNB.

Bhatia who is responsible for leading the establishment of the Aga Khan Academies across Africa, Middle East, Central and South Asia, said the Aga Khan Academy Dhaka, to be established here soon to provide international standard education for students and prepare them for leadership roles in Bangladesh and across the world.

He said Bangladeshi young talented students, regardless of their socio-economic background, gender, race or religion, can access a world-class education.

“We will provide hundred percent support for the poor and marginalized students who are talented,” he said.
