BBA Discussion Forum / Choosing your Major in University
« on: October 20, 2010, 11:25:04 AM »
Deal students;

Mostly students lost themselves and also confused when they are going to decide their major. When it feels like you can’t even decide what to have for dinner or what to do on Thursday night, choosing a major may be a little scary.

With some research and planning, you can make an informed decision based on facts, personal experience and knowledge of what best suits you.

What is a Major?

•    A major is a concentration of courses that will focus and shape your academic, intellectual and developmental experiences.
•    A major should interest and excite you. 
•    A major is only one piece of the educational puzzle.
•    A major does not necessarily define your career path!

Try the following guidelines, may help you to decide your major.

    a. Assess your interests and skills
       A good way to start is to ask yourself some “what” questions.

•   subject areas interest you most?  Which ones do you do well in?
•   skills and talents do you have?  What do you find comes easy to you?
•   strengths and weaknesses can you identify?
•   dreams do you have? What do you envision yourself doing? What do you see yourself doing in 5 or 10 years?
•   past experiences (extracurricular activities, volunteer work) have you enjoyed?
•   what are your values?If you can, discuss these things with people you have known well for a long time as they may have useful insights you may overlook

    Try it, if you still wait to decide your major. Feel free to step on my door, if you need any counseling.

BBA Discussion Forum / Re: Why students don't have time for study?

Dear Limon,

*to all

First of all, I would like to request you to understand , why we write at Forum?
Definitely, you can put you personal opinion but it should be constructive and better for all the students and the University as a whole.

Secondly, its not a difficult question to you and all,  why you don't have time for study? Nobody knows better than a teacher about students true performance. Now a days students are engaging with so many events, so  they have less chance and time for study.

Read the point again, I asked about all your central life interest. So, go back to your point , consider it again and be constructive and write your answer. Just don't made a post  because you need to do so.

Yes, you enrolled to the DIU for gather knowledge, but its not going to ensure you to get it without effort, and my point was over there. You can build your career tomorrow, only when you place study and gather knowledge at your central life interest.

Of course you have to do a lot other things, because you have to do but put more time for study and gather knowledge.

If you get time , put your  step on my office at level 3, prince plaza so we can have some discussion and argument obviously.

Best regards

BBA Discussion Forum / Why students don't have time for study?
« on: October 11, 2010, 04:15:33 PM »
Dear all (students);

It is obvious, now a days students don't have much time for study. They are engaged in many events including relationship building, talking over mobile phone, traveling, watching TV, having party and DJ party, surfing internet, listening FM radio, adda, and many mores.   

Think (students) ! why you have enrolled at University? What should be your central life interest? and Where you should spend most of your  time and for what?

Ask yourself and share with your friend, "What exactly you are doing, and spend your time for"?

Post your opinion and I will be back to you soon.

Best regards

BBA Discussion Forum / PLAGIARISM: Principles and Practice
« on: October 09, 2010, 03:42:38 PM »
Dear all,

Academic honesty is extremely important not only at your exam hall, but also at all other assessment, such as assignment, essay writing,  report writing or case analysis. Students hardly follow any standard  reference system when they made their papers.

Plagiarism means using the ideas of someone else without giving them proper credit. That someone else may be an author, critic, journalist, artist, composer, lecturer, tutor, or another student. Unintentional plagiarism can result if you don’t understand and use the acceptable scholarly methods of acknowledgement. In either case you have chance to face penalties, which can be very severe. When it is desirable, or necessary, to use other people’s material take care of include appropriate references and attribution.

All of the following are considered plagiarism:
    >Turning in someone else's work as your own
    >Copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
    >Failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
    >Giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
    >Changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
    >Copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give    credit or not.

Your character as a student and future business professional is defined by your actions. Student must practice a well guide to made reference for their work.

A number of Forum posts are the case of Plagiarism. Just copy from other source (website/books) and directly post to forum. I would like to request all those authors to follow the  proper guideline of reference.

BBA Discussion Forum / Philosophy of Life
« on: October 09, 2010, 03:05:29 PM »
To all

* Rabeya

Great thinking. Finally you are on track. I am happy to listen from my students regarding their observation about life. Of course you should study hard at university, but think again what you actually learning at University. We (teachers) help students to put them on a structure format from an unstructured area. I personally  believe  at university students must develop themselves not only for the job market but to face the challenge to develop their family, country and world as a whole.

So, students must get the lesson about the Philosophy of Life from their teachers. Its not all about text and theory an university teacher must teach, it should be something else that helps students  to open the window of their mind to see the world differently, to think differently.

Can we?

Lets try.

Dear all,

* Al Mamun and Rabeya

First of all we have to make clear the issue , what we think about formal dress? Is there any specific definition of "formal dress"?  Does it support our culture and weather?

I personally suggest students to wear some thing that is comfortable  for themselves (physically) and for others (mentally). The point is, if you wear something that is not comfortable for others and not support our culture than there is no point of discussion. Even though every one have their right to choose the cloth that best fit for him  or her.

BBA Discussion Forum / How to prevent copying in the examination?
« on: July 28, 2010, 10:32:19 PM »
Dear all students,

(for those who placed their valuable comments and suggestions)

Curently i had a post regarding this issue. All you post your valuable  comments regarding this issues.
Again i would like to focus on the center issue. Copying is illegal, moraly wrong and it's a wrong doing job.
No matter whatever University authority try to implement or  teachers try to impose, nothing going to work untill
students change their attitude. Nobody stop copying accept students.

Students need to focus more on their study and need to improve their moral and ethical behavior. I would like to remind you all, teachers working very hard to stop this unethical practice and I mean it.

All the suggestions you made at your discussion are appreciated.

Again wish you all the best for your upcomming final exam.

« on: July 13, 2010, 10:16:31 PM »
Dear all,

I would like to share some of my personal experience regarding Digital University issue. I think I had the true taste of real digital university at this moment. By using the Social Web, currently i am always with my students 24x7. Students can communicate with me regarding their study, problems, as well ideas by and through Social Web. Students starts writing  their course blog , course discussion, and received their events (exam date, time, venue) through social web, as well they can have chat with me while I am using Social Web. Students  can easily check their events, any schedule change regarding class, exam. By start writing the course blog and course discussion they are improving their English writing and communication skills.

I would like to thanks the University authority to make the university truly digital. Its now really effective, time worthy, and first ever in Bangladesh. I would like to request all the faculties and students to start access the Social Web to make the university truly digital.

Best regards
