Premier University is accredited by the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, and its curricula and programs have been approved by the Bangladesh University Grants Commission. The President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh is the Chancellor of Premier University. The Vice Chancellor is an appointee of the President of the country in his capacity as the Chancellor of the University.
Realizing the importance of higher education in the overall development of a nation, Premier University conceived the idea of establishing a center of excellence for higher education and learning in Chittagong and initiated needs assessment in 1998. Later on, a project proposal for Premier University was submitted to the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh in May 2001. The proposal was approved by the Government of Bangladesh under the Private University Act, 1992 (amended in 1998), and the Bangladesh University Grants Commission (UGC) approved the curricula of Premier University. Thus this university came into being on December 5, 2001 and launched its academic programs in January, 2002.
The overall mission of Premier University is to develop human resources through teaching, training, and guidance as well as creating knowledge conducive to the socio-economic realities of developing societies in general and of Bangladesh in particular.
The university will have the power and authority to provide education, training and degrees related to all areas of knowledge. However, initially the university will limit itself to offering four-year bachelors and two-year masters degree in a limited number of subjects. As the university grows and institutional capacity is built up, learning will be provided in a large number of disciplines. However the university will eventually offer doctoral programs and may also offer special courses tailored for people in the work force, diploma course etc.
