My name is Md Robel Akand, a marketing graduate of Chonbuk National University. I am keen to start my Ph.D. at Pusan National University. After completing my study, I will go back to Bangladesh and try to find a faculty position. I will also try to contribute to boosting our trading facilities among different nations such as South Korea, Japan, China, Vietnam, and others.
I was born in Narsingdi, one of the most industrialized cities in Bangladesh. I am the youngest son of two children of parents. I started school at an early age and graduate my high school in Commerce in late 2007. After my high school graduation, I prepared for studying in abroad and came to South Korea in 2010 and completed my Under-graduation in English from Wonkwong University and graduation in Business administration (Marketing) from 2014 and 2018 respectively. During my study, I consistently studied the most fundamental courses of International Trade and Business, my long research work in the field of Marketing at the Chonbuk Business School, and profound interest laid a solid foundation for me to pursue Ph.D. in International Trade.
Apart from all, I can speak a few languages such as Bangla (Mother’s tongue), English, Korean, Hindi an Urdu. This bilingual skill helps me to communicate and make new friends and earn more knowledges. In addition, I am good at computing such as Data Entry, MS Word, PowerPoint, and Spread Sheet. I believe all these skills and degrees are all together with a good accomplishment of my student life.
Why do I choose to study at Pusan National University?
South Korea is one of the giant countries in the world trading industry, and I believe, the contribution of Pusan National University in this field is immense. Besides, Pusan National University is one of the most prestigious universities and its department of international trade is one of the highly ranked department as well. Studying such a great department is always matter proud and status. I chose this program for its highly qualified faculty, innovative research facilities, dynamic atmosphere, and charming sceneries.
Detail study plan
I will pursue my Ph.D. degree in International Trade at Pusan National Univesity. This is the highest academic degree that takes several years complete and required serious hard works and diligence to achieve it. Throughout my study, I would like to focus on different trading issues such as regional and international trade agreement (APTA, SAFTA, Free Trade and etc), risk allocation between buyers and sellers, the impact of a trade war on the global economy, International Logistic and Secure payment method. Time of allocation of my Ph.D. as follows:
During course work:
At the very beginning of my course work, I would like to fully concentrate on studying major courses and reviewing the previous theses relating to my research work. I will also attend seminars and difference conferences to enhance my knowledge that is connected to research and attentively join with my advisor discussion forum.
At the last stage of my course work, I will initiate my research work and do some preliminary research. I will then developed my research proposal with the instruction of my academic advisors. This proposal would probably be connected to the preliminary research.
After Course Work:
In this stage, I will carry out my research plan, collect data and analyze the result in accordance with the research proposal. High-quality research papers are expected to be published in international academic journals in this period.
At the late period of this stage, I will complete my all research work and then, I will concentrate on graduate dissertation and degree defense. I will also search for a faculty position in the Bangladesh job Market and go back to my home country as soon as I complete my Ph.D. Degree.
My plan after graduation
After my graduation, I would like to join as a faculty or a consultant in a research institution in Bangladesh. My whole family lives in the capital city, Dhaka. There are good numbers of universities and research institutes there so that It might be facile to find a position. Though we are a densely populated country, large numbers of high school graduates desire to get into university, but they don’t find sits for their higher educations. So, Bangladesh government and private organization are establishing new universities and institutes that create new positions for Ph.D. degree holders. I believe Koran education background and connection in Bangladesh would make me competent find positions in a university or an institute in Bangladesh.
