FROM THE CHANCELLOR There could be no better feeling for me as Chancellor IoBM than to write this message for IoBM Catalog 2018-19.

5 FROM THE CHANCELLOR There could be no better feeling for me as Chancellor IoBM than to write this message for IoBM Catalog My dear students, let us mutually and humbly share the pertinent reality that Mashaa Allah IoBM is known home and abroad to impart quality education in business management and allied disciplines. This is basically due to the iconic insights and inspiration of its Founder President, Late Mr. Shahjehan Syed Karim. During these twenty-three years or so, this Institute has evolved to become one of the best business schools in the country offering degrees in a number of programs pertaining to higher education and research. With the guidance of its management and efforts poured in by its faculty, IoBM now stands as a vivid model of academic and professional excellence. Today, IoBM is known in the corporate sector of Pakistan for its bright graduates and learned faculty who are always motivated by the able and humble guidance of its management. IoBM has been placed highly by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Government of Pakistan and has been rated as among the best business schools by the Chartered Inspection and Evaluation Committee (CIEC), Government of Sindh. IoBM graduates are working in top managerial and executive positions in private and public sector organizations. While IoBM has gathered national and international credibility, the distinctive feature of this Institute is exploring and surpassing international educational prospects in Asia and from North America to Europe and beyond. IoBM s interaction with universities in Europe through Erasmus Mundus, a consortium of European universities and with South Korea and China in the Far East, is worth-mentioning, especially regarding students exchange programs. The visit of IoBM s Late Founder President, Mr. Shahjehan Syed Karim, to Italy, France, Georgia and Germany for bilateral and multilateral academic cooperation is a prime example of IoBM s expanding international vistas. Imparting quality education through career-oriented curriculum and blending the same with such relevant objectives as involving students in co-curricular and extracurricular activities are IoBM hallmarks indeed. Moreover, students need to be engaged in experiential learning classroom initiatives, therefore, enabling them to follow the practical concept of learning by doing. The Capstone Projects, which students pursue at IoBM during their MBA program, is one such shining example where theoretical concepts and practical learning go hand in hand. Requiring to establish a functional enterprise, students, amid the guidance of their inspiring faculties, implement a particular aspect of the implementation process such as organizational design consultations, niche research, planning, establishing the organization, creating a presence through networking, launching and creating awareness and funding their project with persistence and resolve. I wish to witness our students efforts, dreams, hopes and aspirations trickle down to the grassroots level among the masses. Indeed, the need of the hour for our youth is to realize that sustainable socio-economic development must be amplified and improved upon to benefit those residing in the underprivileged areas of this country. Therefore, the essence of corporate social responsibility must be meticulously blended with a focused education in fields such as arts, humanities, commerce, management, science and so on. I believe that IoBM s career-focused programs will assist and facilitate students to take up all professional challenges that may come their way in this regard. Financial assistance is available for deserving and needy students. Amid the enlightening legacy of our Founder President, Late Mr. Shahjehan Syed Karim, IoBM continues to be a harmonious blend of managerial and professional excellence further combined with exemplary faculty expertise and guidance for students in letter and in spirit. As such, this institution continues to train and blossom crop after crop of talented young professionals for the corporate sector and towards a better and brighter Pakistan.

8 WELCOME TO IoBM FROM THE PRESIDENT I am pleased to welcome you to IoBM – an institution founded on the principles of lifelong learning, impeccable character-building, and the pursuit of a larger purpose in life. As a progressive institution committed to excellence in higher education, we have continuously explored new avenues of improvement in the curricula of our four Colleges CBM, CCSIS, CESD, and CES. Our faculty members, bring a blend of scholarly knowledge and practical industry experience to the classroom, and go beyond imparting quality education. Acting as mentors and advisers, they ensure that the students demonstrate their learning through active class participation and project presentations. Leading-edge research is an essential part of our strategic goals, and is built into our MS, MPhil, and PhD programs. Students in the undergraduate and graduate programs also undertake academic and field research. Apart from the Pakistan Business Review, an X category journal, we also publish the Pakistan Journal of Engineering Technology & Science, and the Journal of Education & Educational Development. At IoBM, we have continually invested in infrastructure development. Consequently, apart from an array of custom-designed buildings, we also have dedicated IT labs, a fully equipped professional film-production studio, a well-stocked library, gym, and sports facilities. International and national conferences are a regular feature at IoBM. During 2017, we organized the 1st International Conference on Islamic Banking & Finance, the 2nd International Conference on Experiential Learning (ICEL 2017), the 11th Conference on Mathematics, Computer Science & Statistics (MACS 11), a Business Leaders Conference, and the IoBM AMDIP Faculty Colloquium (IAFC), in collaboration with the Association of Management Development Institutions in Pakistan. We believe that higher education is the right of every deserving individual, including those coming from less privileged families. Hence, nearly 25% of our 4,500 regular students today receive a scholarship, based on merit or need. Additionally, our Outreach Program benefits 45 students from nine districts of interior Sindh, who are currently enrolled in a four-year, fully-funded undergraduate degree program in Engineering. After a modest start in 1995, IoBM – the vision of our Founder-President, the late Shahjehan S. Karim, has now transformed into one of the most highly regarded Higher Education institutions in the country. Over 9,600 alumni, who walked the corridors of this institution, now walk the corridors of power in reputable business organizations and public sector institutions with a sense of worthiness and achievement, or manage their own businesses with pride and panache.

9 In remembrance of our Founder-President Shahjehan S. Karim Twenty-one years ago we had set out on a mission to create an institution of higher learning a business school, which was not only needed for the development of this country, but also for generations of young people standing at the threshold of life, keen on building their future. Our vision was clear, and our hopes high. Yet, there were those who doubted our chances of success. But we knew that much can be achieved in life with tenacity, confidence and resilience. We were not oblivious to the fact that success depended on bringing together a team of exceptional people, who also shared our vision. It was perhaps our good fortune, that a group of selfless individuals, several of whom are seated right here today, responded to our call. They had the same glimmer in their eyes, the same warmth in their hearts, and an equally strong desire to shape the destiny of this young nation. Catalog l 9

SHAHJEHAN S. KARIM ACADEMIC WRITING CENTER Mission The Shahjehan S.

13 SHAHJEHAN S. KARIM ACADEMIC WRITING CENTER Mission The Shahjehan S. Karim Academic Writing Center aspires to support all writers within the IoBM family, particularly those at undergraduate and graduate levels, and promote an environment in which students attainment differences are accepted and attended to. A diverse group of writing tutors endeavor to uphold IoBM s values of discovery, scholarship, and excellence. We are committed to: Helping students at all levels of the writing process. Supporting and furthering cooperation among writers. Applauding growth and variety of language. Advocating understanding of inter-curricular thinking and writing. Employing best practices and research-assisted education. We are of the view that this approach to writing, instruction and research permits us to guide our student community and requires us to grow and innovate appropriately. Tutorials are offered in a one-to-one setting. Tutors meet individually with writers in the Writing Center to attend to that particular writer s concerns. The writers who attend the center may come in only a few times for specific help or on a regular basis. Some writers seek help on their own; others appear at the recommendation of teachers. The Writing Center is a relaxed and friendly place where students can work with advisers/tutors who give concrete feedback and advice on how to improve writing. Our advisers/tutors are skilled readers and writers who help students work on a project by assisting them with revising, brainstorming, and/or writer s block. They can also answer specific questions about grammar, citing sources, and format. They can provide special assistance with particular writing issues or just be the kind of skilled reader who can help to improve students work. Catalog l 13

14 Tutors are coaches and collaborators, not teachers Tutors do not evaluate their students in any way because the tutor s role is to help students, not to lecture at them or repeat information available from the teacher or textbook. Instead, tutors collaborate with writers in ways that facilitate the process of writers finding their own answers. To accomplish this, tutors may engage writers in discussions of their topics so that writers can develop their ideas and practice the phrasing and vocabulary of the kinds of discourses they will be writing. Tutors may also offer reader feedback on developing drafts of papers, suggest writing strategies, diagnose writing problems, ask questions, review misunderstood or missing information, listen to writers, and help them gain a perspective on their writing. Each student s individual needs are the focus of the tutorial No two tutorials are alike because every writer is different. The starting point of every tutorial is to find out what that particular student needs or wants. To set the agenda for the tutorial, tutors assess the student s present situation, class requirements, past writing history, general composing habits and approaches to learning, attitudes, motivation, and whatever else is needed to determine how the tutor and student should proceed. Students are encouraged to participate actively in setting the agenda for how the tutor and student will spend their time together. Writers work on writing from a variety of courses While the Writing Center complements writing courses by providing individualized help, it also serves the entire school by working with writers doing business and lab reports, term papers, job applications, resumes, and graduate dissertations (Some IoBM faculty members have been approached in regard to looking at content related to various disciplines and expressed enthusiasm and interest in lending support in terms of assisting with the content of the writing). In addition, the Writing Center can provide writing assistance to faculty and staff as well, both with their own writing and with structuring writing assignments for classes. Future plans in this regard Outreach programs for the community may include workshops for local businesses, grammar hotlines, writing contests, training of tutors for other settings, and conferences on writing. Recognizing that their tutors also learn about writing and gain professional experience in tutorial instruction, the Writing Center could also offer credit courses for tutor training and acknowledge their role in the preparation of future teachers. The Writing Centers is available for students at all levels of writing proficiency The Writing Center does not limit itself to working with writers at a particular level of writing skills. Developmental students can have special programs available for them which focus on individualized tutorial assistance. There are a number of underlying assumptions which guide the Writing Center s tutorial approach to writing. In the Writing Center, the uniqueness of each writer is acknowledged as well as the writer s individual needs and the benefits the writer can gain from personal attention. Even when classroom teachers meet with their students in conferences, teachers cannot normally provide opportunities for the extended, on-going collaborative discussion, questioning, and practice which are the tutor s mainstays. The function of the tutor, on the other hand, is to provide non-evaluative, immediate oral feedback, to attend only to that student s questions, and to engage with the student in some active planning, drafting, or revising. The tutor s goal in working on a specific paper with a student is to help that student develop general writing skills. Tutors often rely on asking questions that help students find their own answers, thereby keeping the tutorial an interactive situation in which the student is encouraged to do as much or more talking than the tutor thereby enhancing their motivation and attitudes. 14 Catalog l

19 WHY CHOOSE IoBM? IoBM is one of the premier universities of the country. Not only does it offer academic excellence but its peaceful location – part city, part countryside – is ideal for reflection as well as camaraderie. The lay-out of the campus, where the buildings are connected by a leafy and partially winding driveway, has a charm of its own. The buildings themselves, a rich terracotta pink, are spacious and attractively designed. The breezy interior of the CBM building, with its twists and turns and its all-handson-deck sense, is especially appealing. Tastefully landscaped with the help of nature – and sculpture – the IoBM campus is both homely and gracious. To the many students who form part of its fraternity, it is a home away from home. The academic laurels IoBM has won are equally impressive. IoBM was rated one of the country s top universities by the Higher Education Commission of the Federal Government as well as the Government of Sindh. IoBM has also been the proud recipient of two Edunversal Palms, awarded to it at the international convention of Deans of Business Colleges in recognition of its being one of the two best Business Schools since The essence of IoBM s academic programs pertains to career focused education towards Individual fulfillment, professional excellence, institutional credibility, family welfare and social responsibility.

BS SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND SOCIAL LEADERSHIP Objective: To develop social leaders and social entrepreneurs who are able to create sustainable and impactful solutions to local and global problems.

48 BS SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND SOCIAL LEADERSHIP Objective: To develop social leaders and social entrepreneurs who are able to create sustainable and impactful solutions to local and global problems. Motivation: Focus of existing graduates is often to serve the corporate sector preferably multinational corporations, and the measure of their career success typically does not include developing solutions to societal problems. This program provides a curriculum and methodology that will connect the graduates to the realities of the problems confronting a developing nation like Pakistan. The graduates so produced will be mentally prepared to confront the problems relevant to the local environment, and create sustainable solutions. Unlike other graduates who want to run away from the problems in Pakistan, these graduates would consider these as important challenges to overcome before scaling their solutions to international levels. Program: BS Social Entrepreneurship and Social Leadership, a joint program of CBM and CESD, inspires and equips graduates to demonstrate leadership through creation of sustainable social advocacy enterprises focused on solving real life problems. This is an innovative and fully experiential learning program focusing on PBL; Project Based Learning and Problem Based Learning. It provides an interdisciplinary understanding of real life problems from humanities and liberal arts perspectives, and additionally enables students to envision and create enterprise solutions through managerial and leadership skills imparted in the program. The projects involve field work to explore real life social enterprises advocating solutions in areas such as education, health, violence, poverty, women empowerment and environment. These projects integrate course work of leadership and enterprise management studies with perspectives from several inter-linked subject areas such as philosophy, psychology, history, sociology, economy, power, culture, religion, ethics, arts, literature and aesthetics. This integration enables students to design sustainable solutions to local challenges that reflect their internal desires to benefit themselves and the community and that can give them confidence to take on the global challenges. The Bachelor Program requires completion of 144 credit hours of course work in a total of 8 semesters or 4 years. Students must complete an internship and comprehensive exam as part of their degree requirements. Distinctive Feature of the Program: Experiential Learning: Learning by doing via PBL; Project Based Learning and Problem Based Learning: Eight thematic projects on real life problems. Projects are exploratory and descriptive during the earlier part of the program and are prescriptive and implementation oriented during the later semesters. These projects include fieldwork and internships as a mandatory part of the semester work as described below. Focus on Social Problems: During each semester, students work on a major experiential learning project dealing with a real life problem. Each thematic project consists of multiple sub-projects corresponding to the six threads linking the courses across the semesters: Semester-1 & 2: Semester-3: Semester-4: Semester-5: Semester-6: Semester-7: Semester-8: Foundational Projects Projects related to social enterprises in education Projects related to social enterprises in health Projects related to social enterprises dealing with poverty issues Projects related to social enterprises in environment sector Projects related to Violence and Business Incubation Projects related to Violence and Business Incubation 48 Catalog l

49 Course design: Courses designed around PBL sub-projects with deliverables requiring application, analysis/evaluation and creation levels of Bloom s taxonomy. Integrated Curriculum: Courses in each thread integrate perspectives from multiple subject areas.

66 Having completed my MBBS and being employed full-time, a wife and a mother of two boys living in a joint family I was anxious when I joined IoBM s MBA program but this institute changed my life! MBA-MHM at IoBM is very demanding a compressed, intensive experience but the result is an incredible amount of learning. I stepped outside my day-to-day responsibilities and was forced to think through and reflect on what I was doing both professionally and personally. Beyond just gaining knowledge, I learnt how to apply knowledge and institute change. I have come out with a different and broader perspective on life and business and found that many of my belief systems have been challenged and reshaped. That is the hallmark of good education! I was amazed at the love that I received from faculty and students and the knowledge that I gained that far transcended the classroom. IoBM not only allowed me the opportunity to see the world anew, but showed me how important it is to do my part in changing the world for the better. What I am today is all thanks to my inspirational mother, my loving father, my wonderful husband, my extraordinary sons, my supportive in-laws and this amazing institute that made me believe that any person can make a difference, any person can spark a positive change and ignite a fire that can illuminate the world. All it takes is hard work, faith and courage, and most of all dreaming big!

Initially, it felt like a mountain to climb with having a packed weekend for two years straight but once it becomes a part of your routine, it transformed into a challenge that I thoroughly enjoyed with having to juggle my professional, personal and academic responsibilities. IoBM helped me nurture and grow myself into an even more dedicated and persevering individual from that I was before.

115 BS ECONOMICS, LAW & INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS (ELI) This multidisciplinary undergraduate program combines Economics and International Relations with Law. This can result in a better appreciation of the forces that affect our business and personal lives today. Economics today relies more on mathematical and statistical models for substantiation of its theoretical base.

The program includes core courses in the respective disciplines as well as current issues and hotly debated topics such as food security, Genetically Modified Organism (GMOs) versus organic farming, political economy issues, trade routes and economic corridors, CPEC, etc. This will not only make the courses interesting but increase the marketability of students. The law courses would equip the students with a working knowledge of the legal issues which they are likely to encounter in their careers. Select law courses would not only give students a strong foundation in legal theory based on traditional mercantile law and company law but also provide them with a working knowledge of such practical areas as patent laws, banking laws, insurance laws and compliance issues.

117 BS ECONOMICS, MEDIA & INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS (EMI) This multidisciplinary undergraduate program combines two key social science disciplines – Economics and international Relations – with Media, adding a third dimension that can result in a better appreciation of forces that affect our business and personal lives today. From an academic standpoint, all three disciplines have evolved significantly in recent years.

The program includes core courses in the respective disciplines as well as current issues and hotly debated topics such as food security, Genetically Modified Organism (GMOs) versus organic farming, Political Economy Issues, Trade Routes and Economic Corridors, CPEC, etc. This will not only make the courses interesting but increase the marketability of the students.

Specially-designed classrooms reinforce instruction through multimedia technology. Understanding being the purpose of instruction, the process of assessment at IoBM is more than just evaluation. It is a substantive contribution to learning that aims to identify gaps in student learning. IoBM s approach to learning is rooted deeply in assessment that fosters understanding and is more than an end-of -the-semester test. It informs students and faculty about what students currently understand and how to proceed with subsequent teaching and learning. Performance Evaluation and Standards The performance of students is constantly evaluated through surprise quizzes, hourly examinations, assignments throughout the semester, submission of term reports, presentations and final examinations at the end of the semester. The grades awarded are as follows: Grade Marks Grade Points A A A B B B C C C D F < Grade points are assigned to the given grades for calculation of the cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). 166 Catalog l

167 I Grade The grade of I (incomplete) may be recorded to indicate that, while the requirements of a course may have been substantially completed, a small component of work(final examination) remains, for a legitimate reason, to be completed and the record of the student justifies the expectation that he or she will obtain a passing grade upon completion. The instructor should be notified of the reason for the non-completion of work in order to ascertain the legitimacy of the reason in question and in turn to grant an incomplete grade. In order to complete I grade, students must appear in the final examination in the following semester. Failure to do so will result in an F grade. The incomplete grade is not counted in the computation of the CGPA for the semester in which the incomplete grade was permitted. The instructor, assigning an incomplete grade, files a signed form indicating the reason for the incomplete grade with the Dean. Weightage A student can apply for weightage for a course after fulfilling the following criteria. If he/she misses any of the two hourly exams for a course due to a genuine reason such as, serious illness/death in immediate family or important official assignment, he/she may apply for weightage within a week from the date of the missed hourly paper, after submitting sufficient documentary evidence in support of his/her request. Weightage applicability will be determined on the basis of atleast 60 percent marks secured in the final exam of the course. No request for weightage will be entertained after one week of the date of the paper. Rechecking (Scrutiny) of Final Exam Script After the final exam results have been posted, a student can apply for rechecking of his answer script in the final exam or term project if he/she has any doubt about the marking of the said answer script/term project by his faculty member. Leave for Absences A student shall apply for leave for his/her absence from class in advance, duly supported with concrete evidence, for approval of Rector. Following tables shows the approved absences for a course during a semester.
