Positives and Negatives of NUST Business School (NBS)


Ever since I have been the part of NUST Business School, I have enjoyed each bit of my university life. Obviously as students we do feel overburdened but after four long years this seems nothing because professional life is far more challenging than the student life. Since I am a journalist in training so I won’t be biased. Nothing is perfect nor is my school. I do feel there are certain areas where we need improvement to raise our standards. But I shall start with the positives of my school:

NUST Business School formerly known as NIMS is now located at H-12. It is a business school and trains entrepreneurs hence the environment is very interactive, friendly, and lively. The life here at NBS is not at all drab or boring. It’s a full of life campus.

One thing I simply love about my school is that it values creativity of individuals. NBS gives its student a chance to explore his/her abilities. The students here create their own world through imagination, thinking, vision and precision.

Students at NBS do not have a uniform. However they are asked to maintain a formal dress code. Men in executive suits and ladies in decent formal dresses make them look elegant and sophisticated. Hence anyone who comes to NBS for the first time finds its students very posh.

Another thing that I admire about NBS is the discipline, punctuality, and stress management.

Currently not only Business students are part of NBS but Economics, Public Administration and Mass Communication is also being taught. Hence the school offers diversity. The campus walls are mostly covered with banners, and posters of events like movie night, business competitions, photography competitions, concerts, fashion shows, plays and other awareness campaigns. Usually these activities are part of our courses and students are marked for these activities.

Things that I think need an improvement in NBS:

One of the things that bothered me gravely was the air conditioning system. In the scorching heat of the sun it becomes unbearable not only for the teachers but also for the students to focus on the lectures in the absence of proper air conditioning system. Because there are no ceiling fans hence the class rooms become suffocated and stuffy.

NBS really needs to work on its library. It lacks quality books unfortunately.

Although exercise is good for health but too much of it can be very tiring; I realized this last semester. My frequent visits to my Pakistan studies teacher made me think that there should be an elevator. It is very difficult to reach the second floor. And by the time the student reaches the office, he or she forgets his/ her query. ( Don’t take this one seriously).

As far as I am concerned i really Honor my school for giving me the best and perhaps i shall be in a better position to write this article after i graduate out of NBS.

Enjoy Reading!

    it would have been a nice article had you written about a high school. is this the criteria with which you judge a university :sair-conditioning and posh-looking?

      Criticism  is most welcome! 🙂
      However while writing this i did not intend to JUDGE! 
      I talked about the things that need improvement and yes they need to work on air-conditioning systems.

    ahaha…umm when you say that you are writing about the positives and negatives of a certain thing, it essentially means that you are weighing its pros and cons WHICH in turn means that you are judging it.

    Also, it tells us alot about the mentality of our students. air conditioning is an issue fine. but the most important thing here.. is the level of education, the mental level of the students.you have absolutely missed out on the fact that teachers, who just get done with their MBAs from NBS, are appointed as lecturers, or the fact that internationally ranked nust doesnt let us choose our courses, or the fact that nbs in all of the nust schools has the lowest graded faculty, or the fact that we have THE most inefficient admin, refer to todays result announcement. OR the fact that even the wharton business school dosent require of its students to be dressed up in business formal, which NBS does, and hence it has turned into a ‘posh’ fashion parade. more emphasis being on dressing up than getting a good education. or how about the fact that the lectures are THE most non-serious part of the entire day. hooliganism is THE in thing. etc etc.

    NBS has a long way to go to become even a good business school like IBA or LUMS.Its faculty is below average , and like the guy before me said you cant select your own courses.That is the reason i myself have chosen LUMS.NBS should let students be more independent rather then stress on the dress code.

    i’m not a guy muneeb. But exactly. I myself got into LUMS and IBA, couldn’t go because i had to stay in town. and for the  ‘newbees’. The place is SUFFOCATING. Below average teachers and all that, has resulted into such an intellectual drain throughout the NBS campus. its only sad.What NBS needs is an emphasis on intellect rather than dressing up and hooliganism. It is absolutely like some smalltown American High School. huh. sad story.

    lol funny thing how all nbs guys in my hostel love to groom them selves in the shared washrooms we have in hostels and have this air of pride and “am-better-than-you-just-look-at-my-attire” attitude think they are all so better than others around…!!
