Inspired By Excellence & Innovation
We offer a wide range of high quality of teaching and extra-curricular activities.
Bangladesh Garment Management Institute (BGMI) was established in 2011 with the aim of producing highly competent human resources with requisite levels of technical proficiency for Bangladesh’s burgeoning garment industry. It is operated by experts having relevant educational backgrounds and professional experience in the industry.
The primary objective of BGMI is to serve the garment industry of Bangladesh by providing them with a workforce that is well-versed in state-of-the-art concepts and techniques for the industry that is necessary for it to continue competing and thriving internationally in the post-MFA era.BGMI provides specialized services to the ready-made garments industry that helps those who avail these services to maintain modernized factories where the latest innovations in production techniques prevail under the auspices of international-standard Codes of Conduct.
Through BGMI, various factories have already received international certifications such as SA 8000, ISO 9001, AA 1000, ISO 14001 as well as others, and BGMI endeavors to continue tailoring its curriculum in line with the evolution of these certifications or ethical codes.
BGMI enjoys a prime location in Uttara Model Town, one of the suburbs of Dhaka City that is able to reap the full benefits of the Bangladeshi communications network. As well as having a rail and bus station, the entrance to Uttara is marked by the country’s main international airport.
Expecting the garment industry to continue to thrive, BGMI plans to continue expanding in line with the industry in the future, both academically and in terms of infrastructure. As part of its academic expansion, BGMI is actively engaged in preparing a four-year B.SC Honours course in Textile Technology & Fashion Designing that will be government-approved through the academic council of the National University and provide the benchmark for this field. Since its inception, BGMI has continued to maintain a high standard of academic excellence that has helped it to build a strong reputation in front of employers in the garment industry as well as those looking to find work in the industry.
Almost all BGMI students manage to find work in the garment industry even before the publication of their final results after completing the course requirements.
THE RMG SECTOR AT A GLANCE:
The Ready-Made Garments (RMG) industry is one of the shining lights in Bangladesh; it is the country’s largest export earning industry (since the early 90s, consistently earning more than 70% of the country’s total export earnings till this day. it is also a very important contributor in terms of Bangladesh establishing social parity between its men and women, one of the targets specified for all nations in the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals. This is because the overwhelming majority of the workforce in the Bangladeshi garment industry (estimates range from 85-90% of the over 4 million people) is comprised of women. Besides this, about 30million people are related to this industry directly & indirectly.
So, mostly the employment of Bangladesh depends on garment industries. Notably, the garment industry in Bangladesh has continued to thrive even in the post-MFA (Multi-Fibre Agreement) era, as the period since 2005 has come to be known. Once the agreement expired on the 1st of January 2005, importing countries would be able to choose what amount to import from who, according to their calculations of payoff between price and quality or any other factors they wished to consider.
There was a worry in the period leading up to the expiry of the MFA that the Bangladeshi garment industry would lose orders in the face of the low prices offered by Indian, Chinese, Mexican, or other exporters or the apparently better quality offered by Vietnamese and Turkish exporters. But the industry showed its resilience by achieving a fine balance between price and quality that has allowed it to maintain and even improve its position in the post-MFA era. The post-MFA emphasis on achieving this balance and also adherence to Corporate Codes of Conduct called for the training and retraining of potential and existing workers respectively, and hence the advent of institutions such as the one you shall read about in this brochure today: The Bangladesh Garment Management Institute (BGMI).
Every year our garments exports to different country’s (Like Europe, U.S.A, North America, Canada, Australia & other’s) of the world is increasing. It means new garments industry are expanding & also the existing capacity of almost garments industries are increasing. Still, the existing garments Industry’s are facing a shortage of workforce (Like Merchandisers, quality controllers, production executives, Work-study executives, Compliance officers & other’s mid-level executives). Moreover, the industry is expanding. So, a huge workforce is required.
Aims & Objectives of BGMI:
BGMI aims to produce versatile, resourceful practitioners for the garment industry with specific scientific, technological and practical knowledge that is particular to the industry in the 21st Century. BGMI will always endeavor to suit its aims and objectives in line with the evolving nature of the challenges posed by working in a modern environment that is sensitive to the changing faces of Globalization.
Currently, its main objectives can be specified as thus:
✔️ To develop BGMI as an international standard institute providing specialized services to the RMG sector.
✔️ To further enhance the strength of the Bangladeshi RMG sector by providing technically-skilled human resources.
