Celebrating 16 Years of Excellence
The Institute of Business & Technology
(IBT) was set up in 2001 in the private
sector by the Global Education Consultants Society (GEC) to promote higher
education vital for Pakistan`s socio-economic progress.
Latter it became
a degree awarding
institute through the Act of Assembly, Government of Sindh in 2004
and by the approval granted by the Higher Education Commission. Since then IBT has been providing under-graduate and graduate
programs in the faculties of Management & Social Sciences, Computer
Science & Information Technology. Today, with more than 16-year history of serving the
academic and business communities, IBT has reached at a
stage whereon it has 2000 odd alumni serving
the big multinational companies, local private sector organizations, government
sector departments and NGOs.
In the intervening period, IBT built its academic, managerial and infrastructural capacity manifold and achieved unprecedented successes. Lately, it has further diversified its offerings adding the programs of fashion and textile designing, and by stretching towards its upper limit it has introduced PhD degree programs in Management Sciences and Computing. Besides, recognizing its growing academic and managerial capacity, HEC has approved Associate Degree for the IBT. Associate Degree, recently introduced by the HEC is equivalent to BA/BSc (Pass) degree and holder of the degree is recognized as a simple graduate.
On the quality assurance horizon, IBT travelled even faster during this period. Its quality assurance mechanism has been ranked at the highest level by the Government of Sindh and the Higher Education Commission both. The former has been pleased to assign it the highest 6 star ranking and the latter has placed it in the prestigious `W` category. On the accreditation front, IBT has distinguished itself along with only the few higher education institutions across the country who have got their management sciences and computer science programs accredited by the respective accreditation agencies. This higher place the IBT is currently perching along the quality ladder offers the factual potential to make your degree distinguished among your compatriots.
