The Institute of Administrative Sciences provides a dynamic learning environment with strong emphasis on interdisciplinary education to meet governance and management challenges faced by government, business and non-profit organizations. At IAS, students choose a program of studies from the independent yet related fields of Management, Public Administration, Public Policy, Health Administration, Marketing and Human Resource Management. Students are supported by the highly committed faculty and caring staff who contribute to the strong sense of IAS community.

Based on its longstanding reputation of excellence and impact within the field IAS’s vision is to create and disseminate globally and locally relevant knowledge to improve quality of life for people and communities through effective leadership and management of organizations. To realize this vision, IAS offers a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs. The institute offers a carefully designed blend of theory and practice which incorporates class room learning with internships, field based research and immense experiential learning. Strong focus on personal grooming, citizenship behavior and professional ethics is also placed. As a result of this holistic approach our students graduate with a complete arsenal of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experience which equips them to lead in their chosen field of practice/professions.

The 21st century is a multipolar world where the movement of ideas, technology and people across continents and within countries takes place at a breathtaking pace. In such a complex global world Pakistan faces multidimensional challenges which can only be met by leaders who are able to work across the public, private and non-profit sectors. IAS prepares its graduates to become such leaders.

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I invite you to consider IAS as your alma mater and join us in your journey of self-directed learning. I am sure that your education at IAS will be a rewarding learning experience. We look forward to welcoming you at our institute.
