|Program: A Strategic Plan for a New Business School in Pakistan|
GBSN worked with the Karachi Education Initiative, a consortium of Pakistani business leaders, to complete the final Strategic Plan for the development of the new Karachi School for Business and Leadership (KSBL) in Karachi, Pakistan.
KBS was spearheaded by a group of 13 Pakistani businesses that have formed a non-profit organization, the Karachi Education Initiative, to financially sponsor the establishment of the school. The stand-alone business school offers Executive Education, MBA and Executive MBA programs with a strong focus on general management and leadership.
GBSN established an International Advisory Board from their worldwide network of business schools to actively guide the development of the school. GBSN developed a strategic plan, initiated a search for the dean, and outlined the faculty recruitment plan. GBSN worked closely with Javed Hamid, a GBSN senior advisor who directed the establishment of Lahore University of Management Sciences, in Lahore, Pakistan, currently one of the top business schools in the region.
GBSN brought together faculty and deans from top-ranked business schools from the United States, England, France, and Germany to Washington DC to meet with business officials from Pakistan to conceptualize the new school. Faculty and administrators from business schools in Mexico, Nigeria, Slovenia, Switzerland, and the United States joined the International Advisory Board meeting through phone conferencing to advise on areas of their expertise.
The Strategic Plan forms the foundation of the school, and has helped lead to an international partnership between KSBL and Cambridge University, Judge Business School in the UK. The Judge Business School has taken a leading role in the implementation of the school including curriculum development, providing faculty and teaching executive education courses.
