Institute: Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
URL: www.qut.edu.au
Location: Brisbane, Queensland



I completed my Master of Business Administration (Professional) from Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia in the year 1999. 

QUT is one of the top ranking universities in the world and Australia's first business school to earn ‘Triple Crown’ international accreditation.  Before coming to Australia, I was heading the Strategic Marketing Division of a leading pharmaceutical company based in Bangladesh. While choosing a prestigious school for pursuing my business degree, I found that MBA program at QUT was widely acclaimed for its close links with the industry and relevant applied research. Their courses are designed to meet the demand of the real world offering greater career opportunities in industry.

After completing my MBA, I briefly worked for a renowned pharmaceutical company in Australia and then I rejoined my company in 2005 where I currently work as the Chief Operating Officer, overseeing entire operations, formulating strategies for domestic and export markets, and building and leading high performance teams to achieve corporate goals.

My education at QUT equipped me with the knowledge and skills and allowed me to transform my thinking to lead this 3,000 strong company in today’s increasingly complex business environment. 

In recognition of my achievement, I was awarded the 2014 Australian Alumni Excellence Award in the category of Business Leadership by Australian Trade Commission.

QUT is certainly a great place to learn for a rewarding career. A global perspective on my studies  has largely enabled me and helped me to take the leadership role that I have today.

The unique experience gathered from Australia also prepared me to interact and associate with many professional institutes besides actively getting involved in many social and volunteering activities both at personal and professional level. Currently I am a fellow of Australian Institute of Management, a member of Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, and also a member of Monteal Protocol’s Medical Technical Options Committee (under United Nations Environment Programme).

Brisbane, the 3rd largest city in Australia, enjoys a large and diverse multicultural community. It’s a green city with scenic beauty and a perfect climate. At QUT, the downtown urban campus bordered by the Brisbane River along with the most beautiful botanical gardens will give you a fascinating experience while you pursue your higher studies for a rewarding career.  For me, it’s a home away from home with so many fond memories.
