Developing Leadership in Pakistan
In the information age, it is critical that all nations have access to quality education. Information is more accessible than ever through the prevalence of digital technologies and the internet. It’s crucial that youth understand the power of knowledge in today’s world.
The youth population in Pakistan is growing exponentially. The need to ensure access to quality education for all grows more pressing with each passing year.
Preeminent philanthropists Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood have helped facilitate the development of numerous educational institutions. These were envisioned to provide Pakistani youth with the support to learn and thrive in the modern world.
Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood: Supporting Educational Initiatives
The Suleman Dawood School Of Business (SDSB) was founded in 1986. Upon its unveiling, it had the privilege of being the first school to operate at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS).
SDSB was substantially funded by Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood, with the school named after Bashir’s father. SDSB was founded on the vision of providing practical, real-world knowledge to Pakistani youth via challenging, relevant curriculum over traditional educational approaches.
This innovative approach to education was met with notable international support. Leading educational pioneers such as the University of Western Ontario and Harvard University lent their support to the initiative early on.
Since then, SDSB has been backed by a “Visiting Committee” of academics and administrators from across the world. These representatives come from esteemed global institutions such as Cambridge, Stanford, McGill and the Asian Institute of Management among others.
Relevant Programmes, Accessible Education
SDSB is dedicated to providing education that’s ideal for use in the business world. Through SDSB, students can acquire:
- Full time/weekend Master of Business Administration (MBA)
- PhD courses
- Bachelor degrees – Majors in Accounting and Finance, Management Science
- Short programmes for executives through Rausing Executive Development Centre
Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood have lent their ongoing support to not only SDSB, but numerous educational endeavours in Pakistan.
