Green Financing - Former Governor of Bangladesh Bank Conducted Industrial Talk at APU

The APU School of Accounting, Finance & Quantitative Studies (SAFIQS) created another golden opportunity for our students to learn from the members of industry.

Dr. Atuir Rahman, former Governor of Bangladesh Bank, visited the APU Faculty of Business & Managements (FBM) @ Mines to conduct an industrial talk on “Green Financing” recently. Over 100 participants overwhelmed the talk, to learn from his valuable experiences as the Governor of the Central Bank of Bangladesh, in which he was once awarded the Best Central Bank governor – Asia Pacific, 2015 by The Banker Magazine, a Financial Times publication for his role in channeling credit towards environmentally and socially responsible development projects. As the recipient of the ‘Central Bank Governor of the Year for Asia 2015’ awarded by the Emerging Markets, Dr. Atuir has demonstrated outstanding leadership to improve the overall operations of the Bangladeshi banking industry.

In collaboration with the Finance Accreditation Agency (FAA), lecturers from SAFIQS have arranged for the talk to be held, in which students were provided a greater exposure towards the industry. We are glad to know that Dr. Atuir was very impressed by the hospitality shown by students and members of SAFIQS, and he was delighted by the positive responses given by the audience.

We look forward to seeing more events like this in the future, to provide exposure by experts on industrial experiences as well as better platforms to our students in terms of academic skills development.
