Welcome to ICBS

The Imperial College of Business Studies, Lahore (ICBS) was established in 1991 by the Pakistan Benevolence & Social Management Trust. The initial development of ICBS was supported by academic collaborations with the University of Hull, UK. In 2002, ICBS was chartered by the Government of Punjab as independent degree awarding institution (The Imperial College of Business Studies Ordinance 2002, Punjab Ordinance No. XIX, 2002). The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) awarded the ICBS with highest category status “W” which is reserved for those institutions that fulfill all criteria of an International Quality University.

Dr. Adnan Zahir


The present age is the most challenging as it involves nations’ survival through attaining excellence in modern knowledge based on technological advancement. Unfortunately, Muslims’ negative and apathetic attitudes toward acquiring education have taken them away from the light of wisdom. The tide of events turned in favor of the West.It is true that national development, to a great extent, depends on the people being educated and aware of their national responsibilities.

 It is also true that only educated masses who can fully and adequately understand the national needs and requirements become a force for growth and development. In this situation, education contributes a great deal to developing human talent. We are fully aware of the overriding importance of modern education. Therefore, we have established an institute of academic excellence in the name and style of the Imperial College of Business Studies in Lahore. It is a chartered, autonomous, independent, organized, and managed institution in the private sector.
