The sluggish performance of Pakistan's Economy over the last few years, and the devastation caused by the recent floods has resulted in a very tight job market. The few jobs which are available attract intense competition among graduates of leading universities in Pakistan. Under these conditions it was imperative that the Corporate Affairs and Placements Office adopt a proactive, aggressive approach to finding jobs for the graduating class of 2010.

The team has devised a strategy (both long and short term), to ensure a high success rate.

The objective is to arrange 100% placements both for jobs and internships for interested students.

Some activities undertaken in this connection are as follows:


We have also written to over 350 alumni, requesting them to facilitate the job placement drive in their organization of employment.

A Karachi chapter is being organized to meet once a month, to actively promote the Lahore School of Economics in Karachi - the largest job market in Pakistan.


Seminars and conferences are a regular feature at Lahore School.

The following seminars and conference have been held in 2010.

  1. IMF Roundtable Discussion “View from Pakistan's Youth”.

The Lahore School has always endeavored to create awareness among students about the concerns and challenges facing Pakistan's business community. As an extension of that effort, the business school arranged a seminar, the objective of which was to give students an understanding of the issues that marketing heads faced while managing marketing strategies for their organizations in an economic downturn. Four speakers spoke on “Marketing Strategies in Recession”
