Quaid-e-Azam Dr. Ahmed Muneeb Mehta


Principal's Message

I appreciate your decision to upgrade your professional qualification and offer my thanks for showing your interest and confidence in Hailey College of Banking and Finance (HCBF), University of the Punjab, in this pursuit.

Due to intense competition around, the survival and success of business organizations as well as their employees has become exceedingly difficult. Softening of international borders, liberalization of foreign trade and reduction in tariffs, have radically changed the business scenario within the developing economies like Pakistan. Customers expect organizations to deliver. Organizations expect managers to perform. Managers expect workers to produce. Performance is obviously a product of professional competence obtained through formal education and work experience. People with lesser qualifications not only feel belittled but also make little progress or remain threatened to lose their jobs. Frequent Instances of layoff, golden-handshake and early retirement in the wake of privatization, downsizing, rightsizing, mergers and restructuring have created a sense of anxiety, uncertainty, insecurity, and lack of confidence among the managers and workers. Today, when the survival and success is only for the fittest, your decision for academic and professional advancement is very wise, brave and timely.

HCBF, through diversified academic programs in the morning and evening, offers a great opportunity for the future executives and business personnel to groom into successful professionals. Housed in a purpose-built building and enriched by a highly qualified faculty, it is equipped with state-of-the-art computer labs, library, classrooms, seminar rooms, sports facilities and in-house cafeteria.
