Rumi Akter is a graduate of the School of Public Policy, Central European University. She holds a degree in MA in Public Policy. Rumi completed her MSS and BSS in International Relations from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Currently, she works as a research intern with the Central European Institute of Asian Studies (CEIAS), Olomouc, Czech Republic.
Before joining CEU, Rumi was a Research Assistant at the Bangladesh Institute of Law and International Affairs (BILIA). She also worked with the Center for Entrepreneurship Development (CED), BRAC University, and the Centre on Integrated Rural Development for Asia and the Pacific (CIRDAP).
Why does she volunteer for CEU?
Since the beginning of her CEU journey, Rumi found that there is no Alumni chapter for Bangladesh. She wanted to take the role of a pioneer in establishing the Bangladesh alumni chapter of CEU so that every Bangladeshi alumnus of CEU can remain in touch with each other. Also, Rumi believes that this Bangladesh alumni chapter can help prospective students of Bangladesh in their future studies with CEU.
