IBA Karachi is a premier national institution of the country offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business Administration, Computer Sciences and Economic & Mathematics. Admission to IBA is based strictly on merit through an entrance test and interview. Under its ongoing National Talent Hunt Program meritorious students from poor families belonging from the less privileged areas of Balochistan, Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhawa, FATA, and Gilgit Baltistan are awarded financial support to enable them to complete their degrees. As the degree obtained from IBA opens the doors to managerial positions in the leading business houses and multinational companies, education at IBA can become a powerful income equalizing force and upward mobility force. In the year 2012, the program revamped with the following changes:
Students who have cleared Matric examination in 2012 and would be appearing in HSSC level-I examination in the year 2013 will be imparted one month orientation program in 2013 followed by another orientation program in 2014.
Students who have cleared HSSC- Level-I examination in the year 2012 and would be appearing for the HSSC- Level-II examination in the year 2013 would also be given one month orientation program in 2013. This change in selection methodology will save the precious time of students and enable them to appear at IBA’s aptitude test after their Intermediate examination.
