BIZTEK, the emerging centre of excellence in Pakistan

Jan-14 - 20, 2002

Nowadays the mushroom growth of universities in the private sector is creating uncertainty in students minds regarding their future. Most of the universities are in rented bungalows or in private commercial buildings and worries the parents that the University will run in future or not. BIZTEK is a fresh air in this polluted environment. As someone has said that "big investments always relate to certainty". BIZTEK is a very big investment in the private education sector with a total area of 500,000 sq ft, and the covered area of 35000 sq ft. It is well equipped with all the amenities. The building of BIZTEK is a symbol of certainty, which shows the solid commitment of its authorities.

The establishment of BIZTEK, Institute of Business and Technology in Karachi is a step, that was urgently needed. Sindh requires more colleges in the field of Computer Science and Business Education which is a rapidly developing field in the modern world. It is very unfortunate that Sindh has only a few Universities which can impart education in Management Sciences, Computer Sciences and other professional areas.

BIZTEK can play an active role in promoting education in Pakistan and bridge the gap which the government alone is unable to, due to resource constraints.

To achieve the common goals to increase literacy and enhance higher education, BIZTEK has launched under graduate and Graduate Programs in Computer Sciences and Business education with the affiliation of Girne American University (GAU). Girne is an affiliate and Associate member of American Educational Consortium Comprising; ECIS (European Council of International Schools), ECBE (European Council of Business Education), IFBE (International Federation Of Business Education), IAA (International Award Association of young people), IACBE (International assembly for Collegiate Business Education).
