In a statement from the Yunus Center in Dhaka on Monday, it is said that Professor Yunus attended a high-level meeting with the Vice-Chancellor of the Financial University, Professor Stanislav Prokofiev, on November 23. It was in that meeting that he was offered the post of Chairman of the International Advisory Board of the University and Yunus accepted the offer.
The total number of teachers and researchers in Financial University is 3 thousand. Last year, on the invitation of this university, he gave a lecture on his social business in the auditorium of students and teachers.
In the November 23 meeting, the university’s vice-chancellor Professor Prokokiv said that Yunus’ theory of social business has received a lot of response from the university’s teachers and researchers, and it is mainly for this reason that the university administration has considered the position of president of the international advisory board.
