internationally acclaimed Masters programme, titled MA in Governance and
Development (MAGD), designed mainly for officials serving in the Government of
Bangladesh. The programme (designed as a 12-month fully residential programme)
aims at equipping government officials with ‘frontier’ knowledge, skills, and
scientific decision making processes to deal with the complex issues of
governance and development, which they have to deal with in their routine work.
As in the previous batches, BIGD also expects to have several international
students (government officials mainly from south Asia) in the programme.
