Message from the Associate Dean
Welcome to the Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) MBA programme, the flagship programme of LUMS. The SDSB MBA is a highly competitive, intense, challenging and demanding experience, bringing out the best in you.
Our MBA programme offers broad management education. The curriculum is taught completely through the Case Method of Teaching by one of the most competent faculty in the region. The rigorous economic and management research conducted by our faculty ensures that the SDSB MBA remains one of the most relevant degrees in South Asia.
At SDSB MBA, we teach leadership not just by example, but by practice. We develop your analytical and quantitative skills through the Case Method of Teaching. We provide you challenging opportunities to apply these skills and develop new ones in team-based multidisciplinary projects.
During the MBA at SDSB you will work with your peers and faculty in real time, for real stakes, for real companies around the world. You will do it as part of our core curriculum, and you can choose to do even more through a rich array of electives and focused learning opportunities. The Competency and Professional Development (CPD) module of our curriculum hones the soft skills of our students. Adding on to the B-School exposure, the various events organised by special MBA executive clubs takes the classroom experience to a real world setting and provides immense networking and learning opportunities with the industry and academia.
Our MBA classrooms have student representation from various countries of South Asia. Student exchange programmes across the globe adds to the international exposure of our graduates. We have a strong alumni presence throughout the region. More than 50% of our alumni body is placed internationally which speaks of the achievements of our graduates. Our student body has access to these highly engaged alumni networks, seeking their advice and guidance. We provide our graduates with tremendous career and professional development opportunities. Through the MBA Placement Office we assist our students to achieve their career aspirations.
At SDSB, we foster open-mindedness, agility and teamwork in our graduates. After going through the SDSB experience you will possess the resilience required to deal with uncertainty, insight to ask the right questions, identify the real challenges and solve the important problems.
I hope that after going through the website and paying us a visit, you will be able to assess if the SDSB MBA is the best fit for you.
