Done with your bachelor, thinking of doing an MBA? Well, you have arrived at the right place. I’ll tell you the best universities for your MBA in Pakistan.
As you have guessed it LUMS is at the top of the list. If you live in Pakistan then you should know LUMS is the best university from every angle. But the main issue is their eligibility criteria. If you’re someone who is a fresh graduate then I’m afraid LUMS won’t accept you.
Furthermore, they give high preference to applicants with Job experience. For me, that is the only concern I have when applying at LUMS. They require a minimum of 1 year of work experience. After that comes their aptitude test. GMAT or GRE. You’ll have to score pretty to good to get in.
However, all things considered, the fee structure is way too high. For an average person, LUMS might be really expensive. So bear that in mind once you apply.
The only university that LUMS allows to accept total credits. If you study in IBA and want to transfer to LUMS then don’t worry about your courses and credit hours. They will all be accepted.
With that aside IBA, I would say it is the best after LUMS. They are well-reputed all over Pakistan. A well-built campus.
The eligibility criteria are a minimum of 2.5 CGPA in your bachelors or any equivalent degree. Moreover, the entry test is required followed up by an interview.
Over the years the Lahore School of Economics LSE has really improved their standards. It is now in the top 10 rankings of HEC. Their campus is vast and gives students the full experience of campus life.
They recently increased their fees for all programs. Bad news for many people. But for quality education, you have to spend that kind of money.
The eligibility criteria are the same as IBA a 2.5 CGPA in bachelors or any equivalent degree. However, if you’re an LSE student who maintained about 3.0 CGPA and above and have completed a 6-8 week internship monitored by the LSE office can complete their MBA in 1.5 years.
A good way to encourage their own students to part take in their MBA program.
Work experience is preferred as well.
Fast is known for being a well-reputed university for computer sciences. But they have now for a decade revamped their business department. While most people may think it of no use doing MBA from FAST. It’s really not all that bad.
They offer MBA programs in 1.5 years and 2 years. When most universities don’t. Their fee structure is also acceptable. Not as high as LUMS, LSE or IBA.
The eligibility criteria for MBA is 2.0 CGPA in bachelors with having marketing and management in their stream of the transcript.
Campus life is really not that great but then again at the masters level, nobody really thinks about that much.
- The preference of some people may vary but these are a few universities that I think are the best for MBA.
- Please note that before starting off with your MBA please do work and gain experience as it will become much easier for you to be accepted in these universities.
