Bangladesh has seen a revolution of growth, expansion and reach of higher education in the recent decade. Until the early 90s, university education in Bangladesh was being provided by the state. Often the demand for university education outstripped supply. Hundreds of students were found to be leaving the country for higher studies, not necessarily enrolling in good institutions. This was resulting in a substantial drainage of foreign reserve, not to mention the nation’s loss in potential human resources that is required for growing economies like Bangladesh. A nation’s wealth lies in its youth, provided the youth can be turned into human resources with proper education. Realizing the crying need of the nation to retain its youth and help shape them into skilled human resource, United stepped in to the education sector of Bangladesh as a private sector promotor of tertiary level education in Bangladesh in 2005. Over the past decade, United has not only established educational institutions but has set up the necessary infrastructural and logistic support and campus environment that is conducive to teaching and learning endeavors.
