School of Management Sciences

No organization is immuned from changes in the world economy. Embracing evolving technologies, leadership models and appreciating the unique ways in which an organization can use all the global resources available to it is one of the ways for companies and individuals to remain successful. The Bachelors in Management Sciences Program focuses on exploring business models from a societal and economic perspective, with particular emphasis on national, regional and international Supply Chain Management systems and innovative entrepreneurial models in order to enable students to become pioneering icons in the corporate world. With so much attention being given to environmental concerns by world leaders and industry giants, another niche of this program will be teaching students recent developments and discussions about sustainability in a long-term business context, especially for South Asia and Pakistan specifically. This unique Program in Management Sciences at the Department of Management Sciences, Ghulam Ishaq Khan (GIK) Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology would offer students a once in a lifetime experience focused on interdisciplinary study, experiential learning and unforgettable co-curricular skills. Combining a solid academic foundation in management with multiple courses in the development of leadership and interpersonal skills in cross cultural contexts will ensure that students become successful in adapting both personally and professionally to changes in the global economy. Our Program stands apart from those offered by other local universities because of the combination of courses focusing on business leadership and sustainability with a technology perspective. The students will excel at making economic, societal, ecological and legal decisions from a managerial perspective once they join the workforce. Aspects of the Program that students will value include:  

·   Extensive contact with lecturer

·   Intellectual environment

·   Case Methodology

·   Individual Attention

·   Executive grooming

The Department of Management Sciences is also unique in the sense that it equips engineering graduates with the management skills needed to deliver engineering leadership in today's multi-disciplinary business environment.

The Department is housed in a newly refurbished building that keeps the corporate culture in mind. Class rooms are well equipped with multimedia projectors, sound system, air-conditioning facility and seating arrangement that suits case study teaching methodology.

Getting a paper published in a renowned journal is an effective way to disseminate research findings that can have a significant impact. The following are details of the Best Research Papers published by the three authors in high Impact Factor journals in 2017-18:

Dr. Yousaf Ali, Assistant Professor (Department of Management Sciences), received the Best Research Award in the Management Science category for his paper entitled ‘Carbon, water and land use accounting: Consumption vs production perspectives’. He got his article published in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews - the topmost journal in sustainable energy with an Impact Factor of 10.556 and ranked Gold by the Journal Quality Ranking System. In his paper, the author analyzed worldwide data from 1995 to 2009 on carbon, water and land footprints. Given two main ways of measuring environmental footprints, the author compared footprints measured using production-based methods with those measured using consumption-based methods. The findings revealed that developed countries have larger footprints than developing countries when examined from a consumption perspective and vice versa when analyzed from a production perspective.
