The Class reminisced about their student days at the IBA and what values that IBA inculcated in them. The Class then met Dr. Akbar Zaidi, Executive Director, IBA. Dr. Zaidi gave a brief presentation on the Institute and the significant progress it has made in the last two decades; he also presented the way forward envisaged for the institute. The Class also had a light discussion with the sponsored students about their study plans and future goals.
The alumni play an important role in supporting the IBA. We would like to thank the Class of 1994 for setting up an Endowment Fund in the memory of their late classmates, Mr. Abbas Anjarwala & Mr. Sameer Yaqoob Ali. The Class of '94 has generously donated PKR 14 million to the fund and have plans to further increase this fund to financially assist another student on need-base criteria.
