The Bangladesh University of Professionals (abbreviated as BUP) is a public research university in Bangladesh, located in Mirpur Cantonment, Dhaka. It is the 31st public university of Bangladesh affiliated with University Grant Commission. It was established under the Bangladesh University of Professionals Act, 2009.
