Abstract

Bangladesh, although an agricultural country, cannot accommodate its growing population in this sector. To generate employment opportunities for the surplus workforce, it has emphasized industrialization. However, there is dearth of skilled manpower in Bangladesh both in technical and management areas. The focus is on the development of general work skills, personnel skills, and financial management. Development in these areas is essential for the industrial development of Bangladesh. The open of the industrial sector for private investment increased the need for skilled manpower tremendously in Bangladesh.

Keywords: Human Resources, Institution, Education
