The Department of Management was established in 1970
When the Department of Commerce emerged as an independent Faculty. In fact, commerce was introduced as a separate area of study in the academic session of 1922-23, just immediately after the establishment of the University of Dhaka. The Department of Management is in the Business Studies Building, situated in a beautiful natural environment enriched with hundreds of green trees.
The vision of the Department of Management is to stand out as the premier center for management education both in Bangladesh and in the Asian region. The Department is empowered to provide teaching for the degree of BBA and MBA as per rules and regulations of the University of Dhaka. It also offers academic programs leading to the award of Doctoral degree and Master of Philosophy in addition to organizing special programs, conferences, seminars, and short courses.
