Message from the Vice Chancellor

It is a matter of honor and immense pleasure for me to be a part of the United International University (UIU) family as its Vice Chancellor. I take this opportunity of welcoming students coming from all parts of the world, joining the university in undergraduate as well as postgraduate programs.

United International University was established in the year of 2003 with the initiative of some eminent academicians of the country supported by the United Group with the motto of “Quest for Excellence”. It has become one of the premier private universities of Bangladesh within a short period of time owing to its uncompromising attitude in respect of providing quality education and strong mindset for maintaining a set of academic rules and regulations befitting to a world-class academic institution.

The business and economics programs of UIU have been awarded with unconditional ACBSP accreditation without any Notes or Conditions for a period of 10 years for its firm commitment towards imparting quality education and promoting research and development activities. Our engineering programs are also accredited by the Board of Accreditation for Engineering and Technical Education (BAETE). Moreover, our BBA in AIS program is accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

The University has been ranked 2nd in Bangladesh and among the top 600 universities in the world in Times Higher Education (THE) rankings 2023. It has also been ranked among the top 5 universities in Bangladesh and among top 1,400 universities in the world as per QS World University Rankings 2024. We are expecting that by the year 2026, we will meet the requirements to qualify for the “Times Higher Education World University Rankings” and we will secure a prestigious position.

At United International University (UIU), we believe in fostering an environment where innovation, collaboration, and academic rigor converge to shape the future leaders of tomorrow. Our vision is not just a statement but a guiding principle that drives every endeavor, every decision, and every action we take.

As the Vice Chancellor of UIU, I am dedicated to ensuring that our institution continues to be a beacon of educational excellence, where students are empowered to explore, discover, and create knowledge that transcends boundaries. Our faculty members are not just educators but mentors and catalysts for intellectual growth, inspiring students to reach their fullest potential.

Through our relentless pursuit of excellence in research, we aim to contribute meaningfully to the advancement of knowledge and address the pressing challenges facing our society. By fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, we seek to empower our students to become agents of change, driving economic growth and social development in the region and beyond. Our faculty members have been able to publish good quality research work in high impact factor journals of repute. There is an active interaction between faculty and students in the campus. The learning experiences in the campus pave a strong path for enhancement of overall development of the learners.

I invite all members of the UIU family – students, faculty members, staffs, alumni, guardians, and partners – to join hands as we embark on this transformative journey together. Let us work collaboratively to realize our shared vision and elevate UIU to new heights of academic distinction and global recognition.

I am confident that UIU will continue to strive for excellence in teaching, research and extension activities and scaling great heights in the South Asian region and beyond in the days to come.
