I have tried my best to enlist all the information regarding the Financial analyst courses both online instruction and classroom teaching available in Bangladesh.
In my view, Bangladesh is the youngest country among all the other south-east countries and therefore it is catching up with them in all sectors including education. As the economy of the country will rise with the year to come, it will open the door to many new specialized financial courses.
Also, I feel, students and our society, in general, try to attempt the most lucrative career in medical engineering and MBA leaving aside some other good career opportunities available in finance. However, this could be also due to non-availability of information.
