Broadening Knowledge Base: BBA Agriculture degree program

In early 2014, PAC brought about a collaboration between University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (UAF), Faisalabad and Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Sukkur to develop a 4-year BBA Agribusiness program that provides technical skills and business development and management training to students. The participating institutions, which offer industry-specific trainings and internships to the students include HBL, Fatima Fertilizers, Fauji Fertilizers, Engro Fertilizers, ICI Pakistan, Syngenta, Pakistan Tobacco Company, Mirpurkhas Sugar Mills, Pakistan Sugar-Mills Association and Al Moiz Sugar Mills. The program started on 14th July 2014 and the first batch graduated in 2018 with job offers from Pakistan’s leading ago processors.
The success of the program has prompted the President of Pakistan, Dr. Arif Alvi, to direct HEC to replicate this program, with PAC’s help, at other suitable universities in Pakistan.
