'Intensive courses to help students face challenges in other countries'

Prof Amena Mohsin, former chairperson of Dhaka University's International Relations Department, yesterday said intensive courses and seminars are needed to help Bangladeshi students face academic challenges in other countries.
She said viewed from a global perspective, local universities, especially public institutions, are lagging behind.
The American Institute of Bangladesh Study (AIBS) seeks to solve the issue by working as a medium of exchanging ideas between Bangladesh and the United States, she added.
She was speaking at the inaugural of AIBS held at the organisation's new office in the city.
Amena, a resident scholar at the AIBS, said the organisation can prepare Bangladeshi students and scholars for academic challenges in the United States.
AIBS President Shelley Feldman was present as the chief guest in the programme.
Feldman, who is a professor at the Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, said the organisation seeks to promote educational exchange between US and Bangladesh.
A host of ambassadors, renowned scholars, educationists and noted personalities were present at the programme.
The AIBS is a consortium of US universities and colleges involved in research on Bangladesh since 1989. It seeks to promote exchange of knowledge between the two countries through exchanging students and scholars.
