SUST teacher under UGC scanner for ‘fake certificates’
UGC launched the probe on January 15 against business studies teacher Dr Mosaddek Ahmed Chowdhury over allegations made by his co-workers that his BBA and MBA certificates, obtained from Newport University, appear to be inconsistent. They also alleged that his papers from Sylhet International University, where he was previously employed, have conflicting information. Former teachers’ association secretary Mohibul Alam said: “He says in his CV that he graduated with grade B from business studies in Newport and got B+ in his post-grad from the same university. But the certificates do not mention his grade. He did not submit any grade certificates either. “Also, the certificates have different logos.” Responding to queries from the Dhaka Tribune, Mosaddek explained that he did his BBA from Newport University’s India campus and the MBA from the university’s UK campus. His detractors also alleged that Mosaddek was not employed full-time at Sylhet International University, and the date on his job application, January 14, 2003 and and appointment letter, December 25, 2002, are inconsistent. Appointment to professorship requires 12 years of full-time teaching experience. Mosaddek has been at SUST for 11 years, starting in 2005. He has cited two years of work at the private university, but the accusers say his job there was part-time and therefore not acceptable. This correspondent saw a letter signed by Sylhet International University’s acting finance officer Subrata Acharya, dated November 7, 2016, that said Mosaddek was paid as an adjunct faculty there from 2002-2005. In response, Mosaddek would only say that he was a full-time employee at SIU and that SUST authorities would look into the allegations. The allegations were first raised by business studies Associate Professor Mazharul Hasan Majumder.
