BIZTEK BEACON OF HOPE FOR AN AVERAGE PAKISTANI
Nov 26 - Dec 02, 2001
Into the 21st century now, Pakistan faces many
daunting tasks. With its population of 140 Million plus people and
GNP/Annum of merely $450, its literacy rate stands at an appalling
figure of 32%. It should be noted that the above mentioned literacy rate
figure is claimed by the government as per its definition of
Literacy may also be endorsed by the fact whether a
child has obtained a given minimum standard of education or schooling.
In Karachi alone which is thought to be the learning seat of Pakistan.
0.25 million students are expected to appear in the intermediate board
examination annually out of a population of 12 million. Shockingly only
75,000 appear in this abrogated future making or future breaking exam.
Only 10% to 15% passes with good grades i.e. A or B, rest of the 85-90%
percent should be considered as dropouts for all practical purposes
owing to the death of good accredited universities around that may take
them aboard. Whether the cramming based board exam is a true reflection
of a student capabilities which he or she may have acquired in a bland
other wise devoid of any critical analysis class room environment, is
another debate. The concern is what should be done for these members of
generation of Pakistan who control the destiny of
this nation. To charter the course of this significant caravan there is
beacon of hope. We call it BIZTEK.
BIZTEK is a leading business and technology institute
that is affiliated with the Girne American University of Northern
Cyprus. Founded by academicians and professionals of international
repute, BIZTEK has already found its pinnacle among the academic
horizons of Karachi.

visions of both the students and the teachers are constantly broadening.
At BIZTEK there are latest courses available in the fields of business

job scenarios in the world market.

developments especially in the field of Economics and other related
topics concerning Business Studies, regular seminars are

Faculty, and all of the faculty members meet the minimum requirement of

spheres of life to this end we have established a right platform for the
students. The courses taken at BIZTEK are transferable to any university
around the world including Britain and North America. GAU's degree is
