Exim Bank Agriculture University, the country’s first private agriculture university in Chapainawabganj, started its journey creating new scopes for the students interested in higher education on agriculture. Honorable Prime Minister of the People's Republic of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the university through a function at her official residence Ganobhaban in 9th October, 2013. The vulnerable features of Northern Bangladesh characterized by frequent river erosion, flood and drought, social inequalities in education & health, and migration affecting livelihoods of its poor inhabitants inspired the Bank for undertaking some initiatives for their assistance in advancement. Until now, there is no existence of any private agricultural university in North Bengal although northern part of the country is densely populated and has enormous potential for agricultural development. A large portion of quality students having good results in SSC and HSC cannot get admission into public agricultural university every year. In essence, availability of admission would enable them to pursue higher education in agriculture. EXIM Bank Supports export import initiatives throughout the country. North Bengal has potentially to grow many exportable agricultural commodities.

Considering this circumstances and through dialogue with Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University (BSMRAU), Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI), Department of Agricultural Extension(BAE), Department of Livestock Services(DLS), etc., EXIM Bank has meanwhile perceived an understanding and justification of setting-up of "EXIM Bank Agricultural University, Bangladesh(EBAUB)", a private agricultural university at Chapainawabgang, Rajshahi, to be the first of its kind in Northern Bangladesh, to create greater opportunity of diversified and demand-driven education for the prospective medium income group candidates at their doorsteps, as well as to create an opportunity for conducting agricultural research to solve local problems.

He obtained his PhD degree in Plant Virology from Kyushu University, Japan in 1991. And also he accomplished double Post DOC in Curriculum Development under Course Credit System and in Biotechnology, respectively, from Oregon State University in 1993 and Hawaii in 2005, USA.
