Message of Education Minister



M. Osman Farruk, MP
Ministry of Education
Government of The People’s Republic of Bangladesh

I am pleased to know that Daffodil international University (DIU) is holding its First Convocation on May 24, 2006.

Education has become more competitive throughout the world in this twenty first century because of technological advances and globalization. The importance of private universities in Bangladesh can hardly be emphasized. The expansion, however, is not meant to be at the expense of quality and relevance of education.

Higher Education is not just about acquisition of knowledge but also about developing citizens with the right skills and attributes of good citizens. I hope the graduates of DIU have been prepared in the above fashion and for the challenges of their times.

My heartiest congratulation and best wishes to all graduates, their parents, and to DIU family.

I wish the Convocation a great success
