IBMS seeks to identify and remove restraints on the student’s full participation, so that individuals may explore their capabilities and interests and may develop their full intellectual and human potential to face the challenges of professional life.
To rejoice discovery and critical thought we persuade our students to respect ideas and their free expression. The rationale of our existence is to educate students who are able to restructure market place according to ever changing market conditions.
By equipping our students with state of the art training in business management and information technology is the way through which we facilitate them in attaining their career objectives. Focusing on academic and practical research, teamwork and commitment to instill the best, we achieve our objectives along with the intention to serve the society at large.
Admissions are granted to the four-degree programs entirely on merit basis. The success of our programmes is not only due to our highly qualified and dedicated faculty but also to the members of Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry who very graciously provide opportunity to our students at their respective organizations to complete internship requirement which is a compulsory part of their study program. We focus on developing the personality and capability of our students through personal guidance in combination with presentations and extensive discussions in the classrooms.
