Ranking system should be introduced for our universities. I have got many request to my blog asking the rank of the universities. But so far no ranking or rating for the universities and technical educations have been introduced in our country.
Recently in a round table conference Dr. Akbar Ali Khan, Ex- Adviser of the last caretaker government and Chairman of the Regulatory Reform Commission has urged to introduce rating of all universities in our country.
This rating must be from a competent authority. University Grant Commission(UGC) could took up the job. Ranking will create competitiveness among the universities and institutions. The ranking will be based on certain parameters which should be selected on the basis of international exercise.
The other question asked – would this be of universities only. Not necessarily. Technical education like Medical, Engineering may be included in the ranking. The ranking will not be of universities only but may be of different faculties or among different subjects.
Dr. Akbar Ali commented that we have introduce the western styles education system, especially in private universities but we didn’t introduce the rating system while authorities of the western universities publish the rating of their educational institutions regularly.

To have a glimpse of ranking system for the universitiies currently operating in the world, one can have a look in the wikipedia.
In the regional list of subcontinent, among Bangladesh universities BUET ranked best-20th, then Dhaka Univesrsity at 59th, North South 61, International Islamic University 80, Ahsanullah University of Science and technology 82, Independent University 85 and East West University at 89.
Bangladesh should strive for better ranking in the list. There is a fair chance for Institute of Business Administration and Bangladesh College of Physicians and Surgeons that gives FCPS in medical science to get a position in the list.
In the meantime let’s see what our readers think about the best public univesrsity,best private university, best BBA and best computer science in our country:
The polls have been rearranged on the suggestion of the readers to avoid the conflict between public and private universities.
