Bangladesh has achieved notable success in many socio-economic areas. Today, We are moving towards a higher growth trajectory. The RMG industry is one of the largest contributors in that run. Despite being the largest exporter and one of the largest employers in the country, this sector is struggling to achieve its full potential due to an acute skill shortage in mid to top-level managers.

To achieve the target of RMG exports, the Bangladesh Government has taken initiatives to produce a pool of skilled managers. To make this initiative successful, the IBA.

The University of Dhaka with support from the Ministry of Finance, Government of Bangladesh, is offering a Post Graduate Diploma in Garment Business (PGD-GB).
