Suleman Dawood School of Business
Meet the Dean
Business school education has evolved in the past two hundred200 years, and SDSB has over the last three decades been at the vanguard of this change. But why should you want to study business? Unlike any other discipline, business is an amalgam of concepts and ideas drawn from different fields, including economics, mathematics, sociology, psychology, computing, history, ethics, law, education, and the pure sciences.
These are meshed into knowledge forms which that advance society. If you care about your environment, your community, economic growth, empowering individuals, giving life to innovative ideas, and about shaping tomorrow, then business education is a natural choice. Why choose SDSB? We will sculpt you into a forward-thinking, compassionate leader with presence, insight, and interpersonal skills that will give you a singular edge in addressing not just business but all of life’s challenges. We achieve this through a mix of pedagogical tools and blended learning approaches, including case studies, web-based projects, presentations, projects, practicums, and applied student engagements
And of course, you will learn from your fellow classmates and the many people you’ll interact with at LUMS.
Business and society are prime concerns for any nation. Our motto is to help you develop and harness ideas for business growth and societal good. No business school in Pakistan can offer you a better business education, and globally, none can prepare you with the contextual excellence we will afford you. But be warned: with so much on offer at SDSB, much will be expected of you when you leave.
Come to SDSB and find business education at its best. Come to LUMS, and we’ll show you how to become limitless.
