PCF10 Sub-theme: Fostering Lifelong Learning // This study investigates the skills catered through the Commonwealth MBA (CEMBA) and Commonwealth MPA (CEMPA) program of Bangladesh Open University (BOU) and their appropriateness in the context of the socio-economic transformation of Bangladesh. The study is driven by two pertinent research questions: R1. Are the skills catered by the CEMBA program relevant to the current needs of the job market? R2. What are the scopes for revisiting the CEMBA curriculum and making it meaningful in the current workplace contexts? The study found a significant skill mismatch in the Commonwealth MBA/MPA graduates. Therefore, the need for transforming the curriculum and instructional methods has been emphasized by the respondents. // Paper ID 9770
