The BBA program of the School of Business at Royal University of Dhaka (RUD) is dedicated to develop a new generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs. This new generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs would not only develop an in depth understanding of various aspects of business, they would also know how to make a balance between business and the wider world. To experience the RUD BBA is to go inside the issues that matter—and to reach inside oneself for the strength, skills, and confidence you will need to develop to face the real corporate environment. In every class, presentation, event and activity we would not only ask you study leadership, we would also groom you to become a competent corporate leader. The RUD BBA program’s design follows the guidelines of the American Assembly of Collegiate School of Business (AACSB). Professors and corporate Professionals with North American or equivalent university degrees and long experience teach in the BBA program.
Our program is designed to train the BBA students to outperform others in their corporate environment and address the burning questions. “What difference will it make in my career when I graduate?”
