Dean’s Message

Initiated as PCBA 22 years ago, Faculty of Management Studies has come a long way to attain the status of one of the best management faculties in the country. Alongside introducing a number of Ph.D. programs, the faculty is offering specialized MS programs in four major functional areas of business including management, marketing, finance and operations & supply chain management.

Striving to meet international standards, we have restructured our BBA & MBA programs by introducing diversified market-oriented majors.
Secondly, UCP-EMBA endeavors to develop proactive and inventive business leaders for tomorrow where they learn as much from their fellow classmates as from the academically and professionally qualified world-class faculty. Our international linkages with prominent business schools have helped us stay at par with global academic standards.
Faculty of Management studies believes in providing its students with a strong knowledge base alongside professional skills, business acumen and a passion for research to produce high-quality professionals, researchers and leaders for private and public sectors in Pakistan and beyond.

Dean, Faculty of Management Studies



Faculty of Management Studies is a brand name in the area of Management Sciences, trusted by a large number of people. It has a history of more than a quarter century of providing quality education and commitment to excellence. The faculty originated from Punjab College of Business Administration-PCBA (established in 1991), which was a hallmark of business education.

A highly qualified and competent team of teachers, state-of-the-art facilities, excellent research environment, both academic and physical resources to groom students are the salient features of this faculty. It is the pinnacle and the culmination of untiring and focused efforts of Punjab Group of Colleges. This faculty has served the community with excellence for more than 25 years by providing business education at tertiary level. Faculty of Management Studies of UCP is an internationally recognized institution of business education.

Before getting the charter of the University of Central Punjab on 16th April 2002, PCBA offered collaborative MBA programs with renowned universities of the world including Arkansas State University, USA, and Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok. Faculty of Management Studies has expanded its scope by developing new study programs and establishing more departments.

Now the Faculty of Management Studies offers undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs in the fields of business, management, marketing, finance, and accounting. It offers numerous specializations related to these areas.
Faculty of Management Studies is one of the largest business schools in the country with over 3500 students enrolled in its various degree programs. Since then, the strategic renewal of Faculty of Management Studies is going on. Recently, we have added a number of PhDs to our faculty and launched new specialized MS programs in four major functional areas of business, management, marketing, finance and operations & supply chain management.

A number of minors in business and non-business fields are also being offered. Having professional links with a number of British and American Universities such as the University of Stirling, University of Southern California and Arkansas State University, has allowed us to greatly benefit from their business school structures and business curricula in our recent academic and administrative initiatives.
