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 2010.
IoBM is also an active member of the International Association of Universities (IAU), the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP), the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), besides being associated with other international academic organizations.
