Search for Head of Global Opportunities

Competitive Salary and Benefits

An exciting opportunity to make a substantial difference.

Under new leadership, Brac University is seeking to move well beyond being one of the leading universities in Bangladesh and position itself as one of Asia’s leading international universities. To support this aim, we are seeking a dynamic and experienced individual with the ability to build a strong pipe-line of short-term international study opportunities and work placements for inbound international students and outbound Brac University students.

If you haven’t considered Bangladesh in the past, then we urge you to think again. With one of the fastest growing economies in the world, the nation is a modern-day success story. Its rapidly diversifying economy is being powered by a talented and youthful population. Brac University is playing an integral role in the development of skilled graduates for a knowledge-based economy. If you relish the challenge of building successful global opportunities for inbound and outbound student’s we would like to hear from you.

Although only eighteen years old, Brac University has rapidly established itself as Bangladesh’s leading private university. We now seek to be recognized as a high performing international university by delivering teaching excellence producing impactful research, and being recognized as a leader in student experience. We are proud to be associated with BRAC, the world’s largest NGO and share its commitment to upholding human values and supporting sustainable development.  You will establish agreements with partner institutions that bring international students to Bangladesh to participate in short term study and work placements and thereby add significantly to the internationalization of the Brac University experience. In addition, you will develop opportunities for Brac University students to study abroad or gain short term work experience, in order to increase their future readiness to contribute to more globally integrated workplaces.

You will ideally have a well-developed understanding of how to build new models of international student mobility and direct experience of study abroad programmes. This should be supported by demonstrated experience of successfully working with international colleagues and tangible evidence of putting in place international partnership agreements.

Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work with a diverse group of colleagues and external stakeholders is essential. Experience of undertaking similar previous assignments would be beneficial.
