This article will give you a detail information about the inside of SZABIST. So if you are planning to take admission in SZABIST, then this article will definitely help you.
Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Institute Of Science And Technology is one of the prestigious and well known institute of business studies as well as media sciences of Karachi and Pakistan also. Szabist has five campuses :
1. Karachi campus.
2. Islamabad campus.
3. Dubai campus.
4. Larkana campus.
5. Hyderabad campus.
Szabist is also ranked among the best Science and Technology and MBA school in Asia by CNN-Time publication, Asiaweek. BusinessWeek the leading international business magazine, has listed SZABIST among the best business school of the world for six years (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008).
SZABIST has always been one of the best business school. It is ranked as the second best business school in Karachi after the great “IBA”. But the thing which I heard a lot in my school, college was that SZABIST “yahan par to waderay (feudal lords) jate hain.” You will listen all these things but trust me “aisa kuch bhi nahi hai”.
I can say this with sureness that SZABIST has one of the best faculty of teachers. The teachers are willing to help their students and are also friendly. The only thing a student should take care of is that never ever try to mess with your teacher. Try to be in the good books and also try to participate in the class.
Every teacher has set some consultation hours in which students facing any problem be it career counselling or anything else can visit them and they’re always present there to help students out so that’s a big plus point for SZABIST having good and helping faculty.
The best thing in university is the cafe. But what if the cafe you have in your university is unhygenic? This is the main problem that every SZABISTIAN has to face during his university period. SZABIST Karachi campus has the most unhygenic cafeteria. The food like biryani, shawarma etc. are not fresh at all.
You will find students searching for some quality food rather than eating from the university’s cafeteria. SZABIST needs to work on building a proper cafe giving it’s students the chance to have hygienic food in the premises of university.
As I have mentioned it earlier that you will hear a lot of rumours about the sindhi influence in SZABIST. But trust me szabist has zero tolerance policy. The whole university is monitored with CCTV. Guards are always there in the entrance, walkthrough gates etc.
So it is completely fair to say that SZABIST is safe for students having sindhi background or non Sindhi background. Being located near to embassy of different countries, the security is always high and guards and security cops are always roaming in the area making it safer than most of the other universities in Karachi.
The SZABIST Student Council hosts entertainment events, organizes trips, conferences. The following club/ societies are currently active on campus.
1. ACM (Association of Computing Machinery)
2. ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers)
3. SES (SZABIST Entrepreneurial Society)
4. SSSS (SZABIST Social Sciences Society)
5. SSS (SZABIST Sports Society)
6. ZABMUN (Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Model United Nations)
ZABFM 106.6 :
ZABFM is working as an educational radio that covers subjects like career counselling, planning and development, research etc. It helps and guides students who are having problems with the career they want to pursue so it’s helping and helping big time.
Parking Issues :
One thing you need to remember and take care of if you’re studying at szabist is parking. Szabist has parking issues even though they have made quite arrangements for that and have one parking area but that’s never going to be enough for the students and you have to waste your good 10 to 15 minutes searching for parking.
In Short :
SZABIST is completely fantastic and those students who are thinking or planning to take admission then trust me you will enjoy your 4 years making a lot of friends, memories while eating unhygenic food in so called cafeteria.
