  • The executive MBA has been a life-changing experience for me. This degree taught me how professional businesses are run. The case study method exposes students to the challenges faced by larger organisations and how they overcome real time business obstacles. One learns not only from the finest faculty in the country, but while interacting in an elite peer group we enhance each other’s knowledge of our respective industries.

  • At LUMS, I was able to learn and challenge myself and others in an interactive environment. This came through deep analysis, finding solutions, stating my opinions within a limited window of time and then building on it to establish my credibility.

  • You think ‘world class’ and then you see it - LUMS has been exactly that for me. LUMS is what I would like to call family; it’s a friend, a confidant, sometimes my favorite enemy; with the unimaginable challenges it poses and the adrenalin rush it pumps for me to realize that the impossible is in fact possible! The steep learning curve has led me to expose myself to capabilities I never knew I had and to recognize the immense potential that goes to waste if not tapped into. LUMS took me in as an intermediate input in 2017, and with only a year worth of magic I already feel like a new person; not just in my technical knowledge of the business world, but also in my multitasking abilities, my renewed perspective of time and its value, and most importantly, in realizing my true potential. This journey, a one-of-its-kind rollercoaster ride, has truly been my favorite with the best takeaway on offer: It is never too late to follow your true calling! LUMS is not just a university, it is a Center for Excellence. The faculty, teaching approach, first-hand exposure to the industry, learning from peers, and state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities on offer are unmatched. The ‘Think Global, Act Local’ philosophy, a key building block for the institute, is evident in its impressive case-basis teaching methodology. With great emphasis on experiential education and value-addition from a wide array of professionals in every class, LUMS makes an ideal learning platform for you to explore endless possibilities.
