"I urge the students to have big dreams for Bangladesh and they must try to execute their dreams for them to come true," he said in his speech. 

In May, research co-conducted by Org-Quest Research Limited—with Dhaka Tribune and Bangla Tribune—declared NSU the top private university. 

Sattajit Barua, a second year student of the School of Business economics told Dhaka Tribune: “This achievement goes to everybody; faculty, staff, students. We, together, bring the university to number one.”

"As my university has achieved such a position, I am hopeful that it will help me to shine in my professional life,” another second year student added.

The celebration will conclude with a cultural program and singer James is due to perform.
