Inspiring Business Excellence
The Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) was the first school established at LUMS in 1986. Now, over two decades and more than 2000 graduates later it is ranked as one of the top business schools in the region. SDSB continues to be the first choice of students in South Asia. This is what makes a partnership with SDSB a worthwhile endeavour.
The primary teaching pedagogy at SDSB is the “Case Method of Teaching” which sets it apart from all other business institutes in the region. At SDSB, we exercise the Case Method of Teaching through close collaboration with Harvard Business School and the University of Western Ontario, both of which are pioneers in this teaching philosophy. We take pride in our innovative and evolving curriculum, keeping it relevant by including indigenous case studies from our own database of 400 plus cases.
Our internationally qualified faculty is actively involved in first rate academic and applied research both on global and regional levels. In line with the mission of knowledge generation and dissemination; the business school has three research centres working under its umbrella. These research centres, namely Strategic Sectors Research Centre (SSRC), Case Research Centre (CRC) and Social Enterprise Development Centre (SEDC) have strong national and international linkages.
At SDSB, we offer a wide range of development and training programmes both for the corporate and social sectors. The Open-Enrolment and Customised programmes conducted by our Rausing Executive Development Centre (REDC) effectively caters to the development needs of managers and leaders in the corporate sector. Social Enterprise Development Centre (SEDC) serves as a scholarship-based research centre offering Customised and Open-Enrolment training programmes for NGOs in various aspects of capacity building.
At SDSB, we have a diverse student body, including international students from Azerbaijan, China, Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Japan, Uzbekistan, USA, UK, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia. The diversity that these students bring truly enhances the university experience.
A number of highly active student clubs and societies add on to the campus life promoting free flowing dialogue between students and a healthy exchange of thoughts and ideas.
SDSB has research linkages with highly renowned institutes. We have active student and faculty exchange programmes with 16 universities from all over the world. Adding to the global appeal of the SDSB family is the highly engaged alumni body placed in more than 50 countries all over the world. This global networking provides a holistic perspective to the SDSB experience.
