Mayeen Uddin <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>According to Well-Known National Dailies, Retail Shop contributes the most to the country's economy, with the highest gross value addition (GVA) worth Tk 208,700 crore, or nearly 63%. The retail sector of Bangladesh has already employed over six million (60 lahks) people. Sometimes we notice that employees working in retail shops complain against their Owner/Management regarding their benefits and opportunities that specify Management's Attitude towards them. Very few research studies were conducted regarding employees working in retail shops in Bangladesh. This study aimed to identify management's attitude towards employees working in retail shops in Bangladesh by exploring some factors that specify attitude. The study used descriptive statistics design. This study was based on a field survey conducted in Chattogram, Bangladesh. The cluster Random sampling technique was used to pick up the sample. The questionnaire was presented to 160 respondents in person, and all of them responded; hence analyzed and presented in frequency distribution tables with their corresponding percentages and some statistical analysis. Other data were sourced from published academic journals, articles, and other relevant materials on the internet. The results indicate that Management in Retail shops has a mildly negative attitude towards their employees. The Study suggests that management should focus more on employees' financial and Non-financial benefits as those indicate their attitude towards employees in retail shops in Bangladesh.&nbsp; </em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>JEL Classification Codes</strong>: J53, M12, M54.&nbsp; </p> 2022-12-27T15:14:15+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## STUDENTS’ ATTITUDE TOWARDS ONLINE SHOPPING & THE POSSIBILITY TO FACILITATE ITS GROWTH: A STUDY IN RAJSHAHI CITY, BANGLADESH 2022-12-27T17:15:48+00:00 S.M. Ashraf Hossain Md. Shamsul Alam <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Many studies have been conducted on Bangladeshis' online shopping habits, but only some on students' attitudes. With the recent growth of online shopping worldwide and the unexplored potentiality in the country's northern region, this topic is worthy of deeper understanding. The main objective of this study is to have an in-depth knowledge of students' attitudes toward online shopping in Rajshahi city, Bangladesh. This study collected data from 87 randomly selected students from March 2022 to May 2022 from different educational institutions in the city. Various statistical tools, including mean, standard deviation, pie charts, column charts and Likert Scale, have been employed to examine the students' attitudes. The results of this study show that most students are proficient internet users, although they mostly use it for recreational purposes. However, 92% of them have shopped online at least once. Moreover, this study also revealed that the most frequently purchased products by the students are clothing (35%), books (30%) and electronic products (22%). The results from the Likert Scale analysis found that 36 students agree and 24 strongly agree that they are overall satisfied with their online shopping experience despite facing problems like late delivery and receiving damaged products. Therefore, the study's findings suggest that online retailers must focus on improving the marketing aspect of their business, ensuring the quality of their products and maintaining time flexibility throughout the delivery period.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>JEL Classification Codes: </strong>M20, M31, M37, M50.</p> 2022-12-27T17:15:48+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## THE UNITED NATIONS AS BEACON OF WORLD PEACE AND CONTRIBUTION OF BANGLADESH IN PEACEKEEPING 2022-12-28T17:03:14+00:00 Mesbah Uddin Chowdhury <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The United Nations (UN) came into being in 1945 to restore peace and dignity worldwide following the devastation of the Second World War. Within a very short period, the UN gained trust for its extraordinary contributions to recuperating peace and prosperity. The UN is considered a herald of peace due to peacekeeping missions (UNPKOs). So far, more than 3,500 peacekeepers from 120 countries have sacrificed their lives to eradicate violence and animosity since 1948. As of late, Bangladesh has regained the top position among troop senders in UNPKOs, which made Bangladesh the largest contributor. Now, Bangladesh has a rich history of UNPKOs participating in 54 missions. Currently, 6,692 personnel are working on 11 missions in 5 different countries. By participating and gaining first-hand experiences, Bangladesh would easily overcome the shortcoming and make the best possible use of opportunities lying ahead. This paper attempts to depict that there is no substitute for reconstructing a violence-free world. Now more than ever, Bangladesh could be a diligent fighter on this path, keeping hand in hand with the United Nations. </em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>JEL Classification Codes: </strong>D74, P16.</p> 2022-12-28T17:03:14+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## STUDENTS’ DROPOUT AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL OF EDUCATION IN BANGLADESH: A CASE STUDY OF NAWABGANJ GOVT.

Education removes our inner ignorance and broadens our minds and outlook. Bangladesh has made outstanding progress in the education sector. The Government of Bangladesh has been able to restrain the dropout rate at the primary level of education but needs to check the dropout rate at the secondary level. It is still alarming. So, it is necessary to study the issue to know the real picture of the students' dropouts. The study examines the causes behind students' dropout and to understand the current status of students' dropout at Nawabganj Govt. Pilot High School &amp; College. The study employs a simple random sampling process through interviews to collect the primary data based on qualitative research.
