Live in Field Experience (LFE) is a signature course of IUB. It allows IUB students, most of whom come from urban settings, to have an immersive experience of everyday life in rural Bangladesh. Unique in Bangladesh, the overarching idea, which owes its roots to some of the leading social thinkers of this region, is to bridge the gap in knowledge that an urban student has about their rural counterparts. As part of the LFE, which is a mandatory course, small groups of students (usually 5-10, mix of male and female, and English and Bangla medium backgrounds) spend a certain amount of time at different locations in Bangladesh and experience life in the fields.
The Office of Career Guidance and Placement (CGP) of IUB is dedicated to preparing students to be ready to enter the country’s workforce as competitive individuals. The aim is to make sure that IUB graduates have the skills that employers look for in a fresher. IUB students are connected with senior officials from leading corporate houses through a series of activities including job fairs, alumni days, workshops, skills training, and so on. The CGP office also ensures meaningful internship placements for final year students and fresh graduates of IUB.
