    Quality wise, MPH in SZABIST is equal to any other high profile institutes of Public health in the country, as most of the faculties are the same who have been teaching in AKU, Dow, APNNA etc. It is HEC recognized degree and that is why I got advantages after completion of MPH, by getting promotion in my own organization.

    Asad Faruqi – Alum of 2011

    Documentary Photographer, Filmmaker

    I graduated from SZABIST in 2011 and my time at university taught me a great many things. Aside from giving me essential knowledge of the primary basics of film making and photography, I was introduced to many important people working in the media industry, many of whom I have worked with and keep in touch with even today. Some of these people were my teachers and they taught me to create films that were simple yet artful, and appealed to the emotions and interests of every person.

    SZABIST is one of the few universities in the country that offers essential experience with cameras, lights and other tools of film making without knowledge of which one cannot make a film. Much of my time spent at university was behind a camera, as I worked on the thesis films of my fellow students. The experience I gained was and is, to this day, applied to my work and was instrumental in the making of 'Children of the Taliban' and 'Saving Face', two films directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and that have been received many accolades internationally.

    I wish all the students studying currently at SZABIST and its future students the very best. Much can be gained from the BSMS degree if you apply yourself diligently. Good Luck!

    One of the reasons I chose SZABIST was my thought that SZABIST is one of the best business school in Pakistan. Looking back, I see that this assessment was absolutely right. I can say in retrospect that the doing MBA from SZABIST was the one of greatest decision. I think that in the context of a Master program, it was very valuable to understand the Business Administration as a whole and not just to be an expert in a special area.

    SZABIST strengthened me enormously in my professional path. The knowledge that was imparted to me as a student has a lot of practical relevance, and the teaching was closely oriented to practice as well. During the time of my studies, I developed self-assurance that I was doing “my thing”. I am very thankful to SZABIST for this.

    A lot of professors and lecturers at SZABIST work in well-known companies, have their own businesses, or command large professional experience, which they have gathered via actual corporate practice.

    Musavir Gajani - Alum of 2010


    I was in SZABIST to pursue Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) (Hons) from 2006-2010. In 2011, I moved to Birmingham, England for my Bachelors in Law (LLB Hons). Thereafter, I pursued the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) from City University London from 2013-2014 and was called to the Bar of England and Wales by Lincoln’s Inn. Currently, I am a Barrister-at-law working on various corporate transactions and litigation matters.

    My time at SZABIST from 2006-2010 played an important role in shaping me as a Barrister. SZABIST offered me an encouraging, accommodating and supportive environment. The classroom sessions gave me a strong grounding in fundamentals. They trained me to think independently, reason critically and argue creatively – the factors that turned out to be the most crucial ones while I was doing my legal studies in England. 

    In particular, I enjoyed the practical approach to teaching. The teaching methods used by the lecturers almost always involved practical assignments and/or projects which made the learning much easier. It was due to these methods that studying and learning was never an arduous task. 

    SZABIST also helped me learn the skill of striking a balance between the curricular and extra-curricular activities. I founded Young Senators’ Society and, while being the Founding President, it was really exciting to organize activities inculcating political knowledge among the youth and simultaneously achieving good grades. SZABIST was an academic home to me and is a great institution to study at, but with its charm and elegance, it offers much, much more to experience.
