West Coast Institute of Management and Technology (WCIMT), Dhaka, Bangladesh came into phase by registering as a higher education Institute, approved by WCIMT BD LTD. as a private limited company under the Ministry of commerce, Government of Bangladesh.
In the beginning WCIMT BD Ltd. partnered with West Coast Institute of Management and Technology-Perth Australia and have been running its school of engineering, under the West Coast University-Central America with great reputation and success, especially focused to train and educate students who can contribute not only nationally but internationally too because this is a country which is highly dependent on expatriate technocrats in all levels.
In today’s world managerial competence are prerequisites of successful and excellent organizations in the knowledge based economy of the information millennium. On that back drop, I am pleased to announce that we have successfully collaborated with Open University Malaysia (OUM). Therefore we can offer our students two more disciplines i.e. Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A) and Bachelor of Information & Technology (BIT).
Open University Malaysia or OUM is the seventh Malaysian private university and it is owned by the Multimedia Technology Enhancement Operations (METEOR) Sdn. Bhd, a consortium of 11 Malaysian public universities. It leverages on the quality, prestige and capabilities of its consortium.
The main campus is at Jalan Tun Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. In addition to this, there are 37 learning centres throughout Malaysia, out of which 10 are regional learning centres and also they have 13 International Affiliated Centres.
As the first Open University in the country, OUM initially opened its doors to 753 learners in 2001. A decade later, OUM has over 100,000 students in more than 50 academic programmes. The MQA Rating System for Higher Education Institutions in Malaysia for 2011 (SETARA’11) has rated OUM as a Tier 5 (Excellent) institution.
In 2015 and beyond we look forward to share our vision of training our young minds with greater skills. We pray and hope that together with all can build happy and prosperous Bangladesh.
Thank you all.
