The economy of Bangladesh has created a strategic position for itself in the world and has been continuing an upward trajectory of development. The most lucrative opportunity for this surprising nation is to ensure a knowledge based human resource by capitalizing on its demographic dividend. In order to create and disseminate knowledge and expertise on strategy & leadership to foster organizational sustainability and growth, the Department of Organization Strategy & Leadership (OSL) started its journey in the year 2016 under the Faculty of Business Studies, University of Dhaka. The programs of the department include key components designed to help the students develop skills and expertise for leading an organization, motivating people and mobilizing teams to making strategic decisions and developing and implementing short and long-term strategies.
Currently, the Department offers Undergraduate, Graduate and Postgraduate programs with a clear philosophy to develop students in line with Six (06) core focus areas e.g. Strategy; Leadership; Innovation; Change Management; Negotiation and Entrepreneurship.
