Introduction to Business Studies Program
The MBA Program at Sir Syed University Karachi will target both kinds of students; with 16 year relevant business management education (36 credit hour program with 1.5 year duration) as well as with 16 years non-relevant education (60 credit hour program with 2.0 year duration) especially the students with engineering background.
