To be among the leading business school, nationally and internationally, that is recognized for producing transformational and change leaders and managers.

CBM MISSION

To provide transformational and change leadership and management for the development of economy and society through excellence in character, professionalism, education and research.

Motivation for this Mission: Most of the SMEs and large enterprises are family owned enterprises which constitute over 80% of businesses in Pakistan (and have “seth” family culture). Hence, CBM focuses on developing graduates who are street smart and go-getters who can take on the challenge to create startups and move, change and transform a startup into a small enterprise, a small enterprise to medium enterprise and a medium enterprise to large enterprise. They need the “leadership” skills to affect the “change and transformation” of current culture of existing organizations to a professional growth-oriented organizational culture.

Strategic focus of CBM includes major accreditations such as AACSB, making entrepreneurship as major career choice of our graduates, adoption of experiential learning, one-on-one mentoring by well reputed industry executives, making intellectual contributions as a primary determinant of faculty qualifications and development of critical skills and innovation through specially designed courses and a lively and thriving culture of student activities.
