CSIAMUN provides a great opportunity for students to learn skills for diplomacy, negotiation, and interaction with students from other cultures. During the three days of the conference, delegates achieve essential skills such as teamwork, proposing individual ideas, and argue for their preferred stances. Students interested in diplomacy and / or international relations, wishing for fluency and public speaking skills, and seeking an chance to participate in international conferences will find CSIAMUN to be the perfect opportunity.

On the first day, they were assigned committees by the Chairman and Deputy head of the MUN during which time groups discussed about the agenda of the day. The Bangladesh team from ITHS was assigned two topics: tackling the inequalities of free trade in developing nation and diminishing the consequences derived from Al Niño. Afterwards the delegates gave a 90 Seconds opening speech which was mandatory for all before moving on to the 6 hour long lobbying session. During this time, Delegates have to 'lobby' to get more support for their cause such as passing helpful research notes to the proposition while 'wooing' oppositions to change sides.
