Message from the Program Director - MS Management

Dr. Ashar Saleem

It is a pleasure to introduce you to the MS Management program at SBS- IBA. We have designed this program to develop your expertise in the areas of operations management and strategy. Successful students from the program will have the knowledge base and analytical abilities to engage with and solve real world problems and inform knowledge, policy and practice of the management discipline.

Recently we have added some exciting and very relevant features to our program. This includes technology based courses, such as digital transformation, analytics, process mining and consultancy oriented courses. Further we have made the program more flexible by reducing the core, adding more options in the electives and by accommodating part time students through evening and weekend classes. We have also replaced the foundation course requirement for non BBA students with a business orientation. Please see our course structure for further details.

You will be exposed to a rigorous curriculum taught by world class faculty. The program structure integrates theory with real-world applications. Our graduates go to academia, industry, and to public sector and not for profit organizations. We are committed to creating a positive societal impact through our program by making use of latest knowledge base and analytical tools to address the management issues of a digital world.
