Lahore School bids farewell to MBAs and M Phils 2017

Lahore School of Economics hosted an exciting and lively farewell to its graduating class of regular MBAs, professional MBAs and M Phils on 13 May 2017. The event was attended by hundreds, consisting of both graduating candidates, the faculty who taught them as well as the Dean of Economics School, Dr. Azam Chaudhry who, along with Dean of Business School Sohail Zafar offered the concluding remarks.


The regular and professional MBAs put up a most spirited performance. All sections had prepared their own skits, speeches, song and dance routines, videos and more. The skits relived their intense one year which they had spent working hard, preparing assignments and attended classes, but only this time, it seemed all was fun. Teachers were parodied, but even parodies reflected the affection that the students felt for them. The faculty was present and enjoyed the show as thoroughly as the students themselves.

Digital Marketing

Mr. Badar Khushnood, Partner at Bremerz and an honored guest of the Lahore School for many years paid another visit to his alma mater on 10 May 2017 to deliver a superb and very well received session to the graduating MBA class of 2017 on digital marketing and advertising.


Badar opened the session by noting that we are living in tough times. One big trend of our time is fast-paced change. One aspect of this change is in our touch points with information and entertainment systems: computer, camera, watch, tape recorder and much more have been compressed into a mobile phone. If only mechanical systems were as fast-changing as electronic by now in one gallon we should have covered the earth 2000 times.

Marketing and Sales

Mr. Arsalan Khan, Sales Head Nestle Pakistan paid a visit to the Lahore School and talked to the MBA class about marketing and sales.


He started off by noting that if one looked at the history of innovation, one could see that things were happening at ever-faster pace. If you plotted a graph of texting, you could extrapolate it to dizzying heights, but then WhatsApp cut it short and started its own curve. If you were growing at 10%, you would be losing market share if the category was growing at 15%.
