November 23, 2019: The Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Karachi organized an open house session for undergraduate programs for prospective students at the main campus. It was attended by the faculty, staff and around 800 guests. The objective of the session was to provide a unique opportunity for prospective students and their parents to visit the IBA Karachi and learn more about the Institute.
The Acting Executive Director, IBA Karachi, Dr. Sayeed Ghani in his address welcomed the guests and thanked them for attending the session. He spoke about the values of the Institute including truth, discipline, creativity, tolerance, integrity, merit, humility and teamwork. The address was followed by a detailed presentation about the undergraduate programs on offer, their employability and uniqueness. At present, six undergraduate programs are being offered including BBA, BS Social Sciences and Liberal Arts, BS Accounting and Finance, BS Economics and Mathematics, BS Economics, and BS Computer Science. In the end a question and answer session was held in which chairpersons, faculty, students and alumni from different departments answered queries related to their programs.
Before the session concluded, the students were taken on a campus tour which included a half-hour long tour. During this tour, the prospective students were shown around the IBA campus and the infrastructure and facilities available were explained in detail.
The session shed light on IBA Karachi being more than a business school. It is an institute that inculcates skill sets that help in the development of students' personality. The Institute encourages diversity, and one such program that helps in this mission is the National Talent Hunt Program (NTHP) that reaches out to deserving, yet meritorious students across Pakistan.
The IBA will be conducting open house sessions for undergraduate admissions in Islamabad, Lahore and Hyderabad on November 29, December 2 and December 12, 2019 respectively.
