The Institute organized a seminar titled “Uplifting Employability of Business Graduates Through Professional Education” on November 27, 2017 at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST) premises in collaboration with the School of Business Administration of the University. Professor Dr. Shyamapada Biswas, AUST, graced the occasion as Chief Guest and Prof. Dr. Md.

Institute’s Vice President Mr. Mohammed Salim FCMA, Treasurer Prof. Dr. Swapan Kumar Bala FCMA, and Academic Consultant Dr. Nikhil Chandra Shil FCMA were the guests of honour.
Dr. Nikhil Chandra Shil gave a power point presentation on the topic of the seminar and stated that how the undergraduate business students could follow the convenient entry route to obtain CMA qualification and how this qualification would add a competitive advantage in the employment market. He also illustrated the brilliant CMAs who are presently working in CEO/CFO and other key regulatory positions. Chief Guest Prof. Dr. Shyamapada Biswas thanked ICMAB for organizing the seminar for their students which would be beneficial for their future career selection.
Mr. Mohammed Salim FCMA emphasized that if the CMA qualification can be added with the university degree, how the local and international job markets are easily accessible to them. Dr. Swapan Kumar Bala FCMA mentioned how the employers’ expectation from a new employee (intelligence, energy and integrity) can be inbuilt within the willing students through professional CMA education and training.
Prof. Dr. Md. Amanullah highlighted on the value addition from CMA qualification and advised the students to go through the rigorous professional learning process because a business graduate with a CMA cap is obviously of high demand for the employers. He hoped that this type of seminar would be organized in future in association with ICMAB.
