Sep 25 - Oct 01, 2006

Initially, Hailey College of Commerce was established on March 04, 1927 and the College continued its academic activities in her premises till the above College was shifted to Quaid-e-Azam Campus (New Campus), University of the Punjab in 1978. Thereafter the old premises of above College continued to stay unutilized for quite some time. In the first quarter of 2003 Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Arshad Mahmood, Vice-Chancellor of University of the Punjab, got the old premises renovated and rehabilitated to its original pride.

Under the able leadership and guidance of Lt. Gen.(Retd) Khalid Maqbool, Governor Punjab/Chancellor, Lt. Gen. (Retd) Arshad Mahmood, Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Punjab decided to establish Hailey College of Banking & Finance as its 5th Constituent College. On March 26, 2003, Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Khalid Maqbool, Governor Punjab / Chancellor of University of the Punjab inaugurated the Hailey College of Banking & Finance in the above premises.

It was felt with concern that there was great dearth/scarcity of highly specialized professionals to cater to the growing requirements of Banking and Insurance Industry in our country and that there was no academic institution offering courses/degrees in these specialized areas. The need was partially being met by the Institute of Bankers in Pakistan. But it was offering only diploma course in banking.

To take care of their yawning gap it was decided to establish the Hailey College of Banking & Finance. The College is offering state of the art courses in the identified areas. It is following a very systematic & professional methodology in framing the educational programs.

The College, in consultation with the stakeholders, has designed the following market driven courses / degree programs in the disciplines of "Banking & Finance" and "Insurance & Risk Management":

BANKING & FINANCE:

> Four Years BBA Hons Degree Program-entry level: Intermediate/ A level.

> Two Years MBA Degree Program-entry level graduation.

> Two Years Executive MBA Evening-entry level graduation plus a minimum of one year executive level experience.

INSURANCE & RISK MANAGEMENT:

> Four Years BBA Hons Degree Program-entry level: Intermediate/ A level.

> Two Years MBA Degree Program- entry level graduation.

> Two Years Executive MBA Evening-entry level graduation plus a minimum of one year executive level experience.

These courses are being run by the College in collaboration with Insurance Association of Pakistan.

The ultimate objective of the College is to strengthen the base for acquiring high quality professional education in the above disciplines by developing talent through innovative approach to meet the following tangible needs of the potential employers:
