Welcome to Executive Post Graduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Family Managed Businesses

As part of this on-going strategy and in response to the Country's priorities and requirements, IBA conceived the idea of a Center for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) in the year 2006 to foster entrepreneurship and business innovation and to provide advisory and support services to current entrepreneurs with a special emphasis on students and entrepreneurs. Thus IBA AMAN CED offers for the first time in Pakistan , a program specially designed for incumbents from the family businesses. It is a solution to the dilemma of whether to pursue an MBA or to join the family business, by retaining the merits of both at the same time.

Based on an extensive demand assessment survey and saturation of traditional avenues of employment, it was clear that Pakistan's youth needs alternative, independent and innovative career paths. The surveyed population expressed a keen interest in entrepreneurship with over 66 percent wanting to be self-employed in the near future.
