Every year, 46 million new workers join in the world’s labor force and many of them are from developing countries. The global youth unemployment rate is 12.6% in 2013 and the rate may increase to 12.8% by 2018. As long as the rate of unemployment is increasing, it will increase regional disparities; and improvements in the world economic order will offset by youth unemployment.
Reduction of employment disproportionately will affect young and disadvantaged people. As such, if we can develop new entrepreneurs, then it can play a crucial role in creating self –employment opportunities as well as jobs for others. It will add value, create corner stone and competitive advantage can be ensured which will give long run sustainability from the point of view of individuals as well as social perspective of the country.
Bangladesh intends to become the Middle Income country by 2021. To achieve the target, Bangladesh has to create employment opportunities. Ensuring more employment generation is feasible mainly through the creation of entrepreneurship. To expedite the process, through offering Bachelor of Entrepreneurship Program under Faculty of Business and Economic, Daffodil International University (DIU) has come forward with great initiative to support young potential minds to become an entrepreneur. Young entrepreneurs who will cater the need of the society will not depend on others for jobs.
