Which Major Courses are Tought in U.S.'s Top 5 MBA Schools for Marketing?

The opportunity to study the field of Marketing with diversified portfolio of courses in MBA level in Bangladesh is limited due to institution's incapability to offer and/or update curriculum with the pace of changing world. Sometimes UGC (University Grants Commission) create bureaucratic obstacles. Whatever the causes exist as a learner and student of MBA, I think however there are ample options for business graduates, students and stakeholders to stay updated with what is happening around their field of study rather that stick to own country's barriers.

I did my major in Marketing during my undergraduate level. At post graduate level few times I wished to shift my focus to major in finance. Although after performing satisfactorily in Financial Management core/integration course I thought Marketing rather be the best area for me to explore and enjoy. Because in the mean time Marketing is no longer surrounded by typical 4Ps or Marketing 2.0 era. Including the emergence of "E" era (ecommerce, e-entertainment or digital marketing or Internet of Things (IoT), Marketing 3.0 is emerging with its intrinsic urge from humane values. Products will not be no longer considered just as a solution of problem; holistic marketing approach will guarantee each and every value chain of a product life cycle is ethical, earth-friendly and of course sustainable.

From a perspective of MBA student of a developing country like Bangladesh I think though it is neither possible nor practicable to learn and/or study the major courses taught in Top 11 U.S. Business Schools for Marketing in classroom setting, but reviewing, discussing or even by acknowledging what are my American counterparts learning marketing students, graduates and stakeholders can gain some valuable insight.

Scope to watch Hollywood movies in Bangladeshi theaters

It is recent phenomenon to display hollywood movies in theaters in Bangladesh. Not so long ago, its only decade old when Bashundhara Cineplex started showing Hollywood movies. Previously government restricted local viewers from watching foreign movies in theater. Now with the pace of globalization such restriction has been lifted. 

I think the decision to open the market was right. Consumer sovereignty was violated in the past. Besides Bashundhara Cineplex, Blockbuster Cinemas at Jamuna Future Park has become popular destination for watch latest released Hollywood movies. I watched movies in both theaters. To me the newer Blockbuster Cinemas seemed to better in service quality standard.

Launching Custom Favicon for My Blog

Today I have uploaded custom favicon icon for my both English and Bengali blog. Previously I did it. But eventually or accidentally past creation was lost for good.

The thing that nurtured my head how to portray my favicon. My rule of thumb was like past one these blogs are the works of mine. So, the favicon should have something which will authenticate my blog sites and pages and pages as sole owner of me. Thus I chosed my signature to be marked in favicon. I think it is a good idea.

It will look like verified blog similar to verified either Facebook or Twitter account.

"Mirror" A romantic poem inspired by the works of poet John Donne


When sunshine wrapped the tree,

Golden rays were blinking across the tree

Reaching the warm road;

Silence of the nature broke by the presence of thee

Like an angel coming from the heaven;

And making a surprise visit to the world.

Thou and I attached by the virtue of love;

Time stuck for madly moments,

Countless sea-current washed away although;

None of us couldn't even feel that.

Then two pair of eyes crisscrossed,

Souls of two bodies were reflected from one mirror.
