The Government of Bangladesh and the Asian Development Bank have provided funds for setting up of the University. The Bangladesh Open University is an all terms system of education contributing to the uplifting of the overall educational scenario in the country. Through formal & non-formal programs it gives educational opportunities to the large section of population, helping in the human resource development of the country.
