What I have experienced in EDU as a Japanese Intern

For 6 months, I have engaged in an internship program in EDU. As I requested the University that I would like to gain knowledge in banking sector and foreign trade, they kindly provided me several opportunities of off-campus training at two commercial banks, a chartered accountancy firm and a leather company situated in Chittagong.

In the meantime, I have taken several lectures held in EDU. All lectures in EDU is conducted in English. Needless to say,all EDU students and of course the faculty members are fluent in English. In addition, EDU students are enthusiastic about participating nation-wide competition such as business contest. I had quite constructive discussion with the team who achieved runner-up position in social business contest organized by Yunus Center. Their young passion made me optimistic towards future of Bangladesh.

Last but not least, I wholeheartedly appreciate Prof. A. Qaiyum Chowdhury, Dean of EDU and those whom I met in EDU for the dedicated coordination.
