Having graduated from the DBA, the ex-students felt the need to have an organization of their own to aid the progress of the department, maintain close fellowship among the DBA graduates, and assist the current & former students to oversee their interests. So the journey begins.
In August 2002, five representatives from the first five batches of the Department of Business Administration (DBA), Jahangirnagar University took the initiative to communicate, organize and form an alumni body of the ex-students. Subsequently 41 graduates, from first to fifth batches with representatives from the next two batches, has given full responsibilities to the initiators to carry out specific duties up to the JAABS inauguration in a discussion meeting held in National Press Club on 15th October 2002. After that JAABS organized a daylong program at Jahangirnagar University to celebrate the 12th year of Department of Business Administration on 9th May 2003. The organizing committee held more than 40 meetings (including two discussion meetings and one re-union of 11 bathes on 9th May 2003) and collected 101 registered members.
JAABS has started its formal operation through an Inauguration Ceremony held on 3rd March 2004 at Russian Cultural Centre, Dhanmondi, Dhaka.
