Study Tour 2022 at Pran Industrial Park

Department of Business Administration, East West University organized a study tour as part of the Strategic Management course (MGT 480) for Spring 2022 semester. On March 31, 2022, a total of 115 students visited the Pran Industrial Park (PIP) in Palash Narsigndi, which is one of the largest and modern factories in South Asia. The students were able to observe the industrial activity and administration of over 30,000 employees at several factories during their visit to PIP. They were accompanied by 11 faculty members of the department, namely, Dr. Md. Abdul Momen, Associate Professor; Md. Kamrul Hassan, Assistant Professor; Md. Farhan Faruqui, Assistant Professor; Md. Anamul Hoque, Assistant Professor; Dr. Ruman Afroze, Assistant Professor; Dr. Salma Akter, Assistant Professor; Bushra Humyra Esha, Senior Lecturer; Md. Humayun Kabir, Senior Lecturer; Dr. Shabiha Akter, Senior Lecturer; Md. Shafiqul Islam, Lecturer; Fatema Tuj Johra, Lecturer.

The students were warmly welcomed and briefed about PIP by the company management and officials through an introductory session followed by physical visit to the different production facilities at PIP such as chocolates and candy processing unit, milk production unit, artificial drinks and juice unit etc. Students gained practical experience with several types of production systems, such as automated and semi-automated mass production systems, assembly lines, and automated packaging, as well as many features of a real-life workplace, work procedures, and employment practices, through this visit. By actively participating and raising many questions, the students demonstrated their inquisitiveness and passion. PIP officials, unit managers, and engineers eagerly and meticulously answered all of our students' inquiries. The faculty members enjoyed the tour alike and helped the students to understand things to create a congenial learning environment with real-life illustrations. As such, this tour provided the students with a perfect reality check along with an exposure to current work practices in modern manufacturing establishments like PIP as opposed to theoretical knowledge being taught at their classrooms.
