Dr Aliar Hossain (PhD, MIBA, BSc, Dip SD, Cert LD, PTLLS, FHEA, MIC, MCMI)
Head of Department MSc Advanced Practice (Business, Computing & Cyber Security)
(Module Leader for Business Clinic & Applied Management Work Investigation)
Highly skilled and resourceful Academic Leader with a strong background in learning and teaching pedagogies, executive leadership training, coaching and sustainable development strategy. I have more than 17 years of consulting, lecturing, and supervision experiences at various levels of private, governmental and higher education both in the UK and South Asia. I have consulted and managed numerous academic projects, which are validated by QAA, Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills), BAC (British Accreditation Council), ASIC (Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities) and Pearson / Edexcel (HNC/HND & PgD). I have also visited numerous UK and South Asian Universities, Colleges and business organisations as an International Speaker for Change Management, Sustainable Development, Corporate Social Responsibility, Leadership Development, Corporate Culture, and Globalisation. I have worked with hundreds of executives in organisations and individuals ranging from SMEs, family businesses, educational institutions, non-profit organisations, and charities.
I am also willing to make a contribution to raise public awareness for fair politics and governance, fight against corruption, the concept of global citizenship, the importance of doing business ethically, and significance of sustainable development in the global village. Drawing on these extensive international experience, I have produced two timely work ( Sustainable Development Handbook – A South Asian Perspective, 2011 and Developing The Ministerial Mindset- A Global View, 2013) that highlights the shortcomings of many of those called to serve in sustainability and governance.
I fund and manage Seed of Possibilities, a social and economic development not-for-profit project providing grants and consultation for poor people in the South Asian region, improving their living standards with sustainable business ideas, funding and long-term professional support.
