Institute of Business Administration, Karachi

ibaEstablished in 1955 with initial technical support provided by the world famous Wharton School of Finance, IBA is one of the oldest business schools outside North America.  Throughout its history, IBA has jealously guarded the high standards and academic traditions it had inherited, while adapting and adjusting them with the passage of time.
Till 1994, the University of Karachi awarded degrees to the graduates. In that year the Sindh Assembly elevated the Institute's status to that of a degree-awarding institution. Currently, a bill is pending in the Assembly for conferring the status of a University to IBA.
Since inception, in spite of a rapid increase in the number of business schools, the IBA has maintained its position as the premier institution of higher learning in the field of management and business administration.
Initially, IBA offered MBA program only for day scholars. In 1957, an Evening Program was started to cater to the needs of the numerous working executives and managers who were interested in furthering their careers through part-time business studies. In 1982, a three-year BBA (Honors) Program was introduced which has now been upgraded into a four-year BBA program.
