LUMS Students Talk Changes and Challenges in the Time of Corona
If you walked past the LUMS khoka on the evening of March 13, 2020, you would be greeted by swarms of students relaxing and enjoying the crisp spring air. Together, friends joked and laughed, blissfully unaware that in just a few short hours the Higher Education Commission, Pakistan would announce the closure of all institutions in an effort to avoid the spread of COVID-19. They had no way of knowing that in a matter of weeks, gathering in a public space without a face mask or a cautious distance would become unthinkable.

Maintaining Optimism in Adversity
“Pakistan is desperately short of managers, people who manage other people and get work done….In the past decades there has been little or no effort in increasing management education,” wrote Syed Babar Ali, Founding Pro Chancellor, LUMS in a letter dated April 6, 1983, to a group of businessmen. With hope and determination, he set out to establish what was to become one of the greatest universities in South Asia. He wanted a business school to be set up modelled “somewhat on the lines of Harvard Business School, tailor-made to the needs of Pakistan.”

LUMS Community Comes Together to Support Those in Need Amidst Pandemic
Like much of the world, the COVID-19 lockdown has brought the entire country to a halt. Beneath the quiet calm lies a sense that our country has had to change the way it works and that the usual rules no longer apply. LUMS is no longer buzzing with students, the classrooms are empty and the ‘khokha’ is closed. What still exists though, is the spirit of solidarity and the drive to help each other get through these tough times.
