Dear Graduate,
On behalf of the IBA Alumni, I would like to welcome you to our distinguished network of more than 12,000 members, which comprises of eminent personalities like the President of Pakistan, His Excellency Mr. Mamnoon Husain, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Shaukat Aziz, the Governor of Sindh, Mr. Mohammad Zubair, Ministers, Senators and numerous corporate leaders around the world.

Indeed, we pride ourselves and anticipate to be the leaders of today and tomorrow. To support you in your future endeavors and success, the IBA Alumni Affairs Department has recently welcomed a new team, which includes the Head of the Department, Ms. Malahat Awan, and a Senior Manager, Mr. Haris Tohid, to help you in your career prospects and keep you connected with all the latest happenings and events at the IBA and in the Alumni community.

This year, we have reached out to the IBA Alumni, residing within Pakistan, to increase connectivity and seek their advice in making our Alma Mater a better place for future generations. We held reunions and corporate dinners in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad (at the President's House) as we cherish and heed to your voice, the voice of the IBA Alumni.

We also have a dedicated Alumni website, which would help you:

We are currently in the process of creating online profiles for the 2017 Batch on the IBA Alumni Website and you can apply to activate your profile through the Alumni Website.

Realizing that the economic situation both in the country and in the region, is fast becoming more difficult for new job opportunities for our graduates, the Alumni Department will be concentrating on helping the Alumni get better jobs. I request that you please maintain closer liaison with the IBA, and advertise your requirements on the IBA web site.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,

Shakespeare (As You Like It)

With this, I wish you good luck for your future and may you act out all the stages of your self-scripted play!

Kind regards
Shahid Shafiq
Alumni Representative on the Board of Governors
