Among the developing countries of the world, Bangladesh is perhaps a pioneer in the expansion of higher education in the private sector. In 1981 the idea of expanding opportunities for higher education in the private sector was first mooted. About a decade later in 1992 the Private University Act came into being. It was an epoch-making step. The need for private universities is now beyond question. Ever since 1992 the private universities have been playing an important role in developing various academic disciplines. At present more than 35 thousand student are studying in 51 (see Appendix 1) or so private universities. The Private Universities have a mushroom growth of the number of private universities, and their number is increasing day by day like parasite in Dhaka city. Most of the private universities in Bangladesh have not yet emerged as full-blown universities. The major disciplines of the private universities of the country are not similar to those of the public universities. The Independent University, Bangladesh is one of the best private universities in Bangladesh. The continuous changes in educational environment in Bangladesh motivate the organization to make some changes inside the organization in order to become more competitive.
