Economics and Social Welfare


Aim and Objectives

The ILLC of SESW intends to sharpen both cognitive knowledge and functional skills for job of a graduate by a handy attachment with the relevant specialised industries. A primary mission of the ILLC is to produce graduates that will meet the diverse needs and demands of all sectors of the national economy and beyond. Graduates with only classroom based learning often experience difficulty in securing good jobs in both the public and private sectors. The ILLC is the key to understanding the role and the making of incentives in the behaviour of human-being in the society. The learning experience through ILLC thus equips the student with the useful transferable skills such as problem solving, effective writing, basic empirical skills and knowledge of the key economic institutions leading to the employability.

The key objectives of the ILLC program are:

  1. To equip the graduates in order to support their entrance in the job-market.
  2. To emphasis on the development of generic expertise related to public policy and administration.
  3. To provide opportunities by which graduates should be exposed to social service, fieldwork placements and module projects, field practices and other applied learning methods.
  4. To learn through classroom work, interpersonal skills training, supervised field practice.
  5. To produce the graduates well-oriented towards green-technology and green-marketing approach.
  6. To enhance the use of labour intensive technology and of local resources.
Working Culture with ILLC

SESW follows the subsequent steps in order to engender its ILLC with the partner industries in different sectors.

  • At first the school estimates the total employment markets and sectors that predominantly absorb the graduates educated through the programs offered by the SESW by analysing and tabulating the offering programmes.
  • Secondly, we chalk-out the common and the most potential employment markets considering the following criteria:
    1. Current economic growth and future growth.
    2. Emerging trends.
    3. Current climate and atmosphere of economic phenomena within the region and beyond.
    4. Statistics and research based data and evidence
  • Thirdly, we provide weightage based on the prominence of the sectors and their emerging trends’ carve.
  • Fourthly, we classify sectors according to the three major industrial levels
    1. Small enterprise
    2. Medium enterprise and
    3. Large enterprise
  • And finally, we select the students for industrial attachment programme after analyzing their merit, background, interest and psychological affiliation.

Presently, SESW has approximately seventeen (17) sectors, of which seven (7) are potential considering the present contingency of Bangladesh

The most potential and emerging employment markets:

  1. International Economic Cadre (Asian Development Bank, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, World Health Organization etc).
  2. Bangladesh Civil Services – Administrative, Economic and Office related Foreign Affairs and Diplomacy.
  3. Stock-broking firms, National and Multinational Banks.
  4. Donor Agencies and NGOs and INGOs.
  5. Financial Institutions and Consulting Firms.
  6. Economic and Foreign Trade Sections of Embassies and High Commissions functioning in Bangladesh and elsewhere.
  7. Research Institutes, Policy Institute and other.

We assist and work with students to find placements that reflect their personal and professional requirements. Students can work in a range of organizations including local industries, small/medium / large enterprises, international brands, schools, charities, NGOs and professional sports clubs.

Working Culture with WPLC

The Work Place Learning Centre (WPLC) at CUST under its SESW offers students an opportunity to undertake an accredited work placement in the sector of their choice. Generally, the school considers having the ILLC with various selected sectors but it maintains short listed farms among the ILLCs to recognise as WPLC where student can observe directly the professional atmosphere, code of conduct, corporate culture, ethics and many more. The academic teaching provides only the trade based education but the WPLC introduces the students with particular industry based employable skills. This approach not only assists the graduate to be an expert of a trade but also be a connoisseur at the sector of his/her desired under the ILLC.
