IoBM Orientation Spring 2019

Blossoming careers for promising students

Mr. Talib S. Karim, President IoBM offered a noble piece of advice to incoming IoBM students on how respecting rules and regulations, perseverance and dedication, maintaining the CGPA and enhancing communication and professional skills can be instrumental towards life and career excellence. He was addressing IoBM Orientation for Spring Semester 2019 on Saturday, January 12, 2019, at the Shahjehan Syed Karim (SSK) Center of Excellence Building, IoBM.

He felt while academic, class course and curriculum routine remain important, what is vital at IoBM is going beyond teaching and inculcating among students positive thinking, personality development and human values in letter and spirit. He believed Pakistan is a land of immense promise and potential which can best be explored and utilized through focusing on youth as the mainstay of human resource. He portrayed Pakistan as a touristic land of wonders and beauties to prefer and promote with a fascinating landscape, fantastic lakes and rivers, fabulous food delicacies, and the most spell-binding and breathtaking mountain ranges of the world.

Our country, Mr. Talib Karim advocated, offers enormous entrepreneurial opportunities and IoBM encourages and trains students to become entrepreneurs. In this regard, he informed about the incubation center at the second floor of SSK Center to be inaugurated in nearly two months. He said IoBM will arrange equity for students’ start-up projects through equity partners and industry experts.

She urged students to read rules and regulations, especially those pertaining to academics and examination and to abide by them at all times. She said that the management and the faculty will always be here to guide students and it is the students’ common sense, intelligence and hard work that will earn them success.
