AN OVERVIEW OF INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
Since its foundation in 1972, the Institute of
Business Administration, University of the Punjab, has undergone a great
deal of change, Developing from what was originally a modest programme
on cooperative basis, it became an independent department in Pun
Building at the Quaid-e-Azam Campus, which was later upgraded to the
Institute of Business Administration. This was a great milestone in the
history of the University, being the second institute in Pakistan where
teaching of business administration leading to MBA degree commenced in
Our institute offers a two-year full-time morning
programme leading to Master's degree in business administration (MBA) to
fresh graduates. It is operated on semester system. The prime emphasis,
in this institute, is laid on raising the standard of education and
improving the personality of its graduates. The whole package consists
of 23 courses with a mandatory eight weeks business attachment to
furnish the graduates with practical experience of business life.
Presently, the institute offers three areas of concentration, namely
Marketing, Finance and Information Technology.

public and private institutions, imports and exports sector and set up
of educational institutions. Everywhere the students of IBA, University
of the Punjab, have done an excellent job.
With the kind support of the University authorities
we started MBA evening programme in 1995. The idea behind this programme
was to impart management education to in-service executives working in
public, private, government and multinational sectors so that they could
improve their professional skills and performance, could bring
efficiency, effectiveness and new constructive developments compatible
with the complex changing environment of business world in their
organizations. In the first five batches 575 students successfully
completed the MBA degree programme.
Since 1992, we are offering a one year Post Graduate
Diploma (PGD) in Business Administration also. In the first eight
batches 414 students have successfully completed the pgoramme. The Ninth
batch is currently in its fourth term. The diploma holders are rendering
useful services to their employers in public and private sectors.
Twenty seats have been reserved in the MBA (Evening)
programme for holders of Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) in Business
Administration from University of the Punjab.

education has been achieved by introducing Ph.D. in Business
