Institute of Business Administration in Karachi announced admissions in various Bachelor, Master and PhD programs. However, they have changed the admission criteria with replacing admission test with an interview assessment. Admission Tests were scheduled on 19th July, 2020 and 26th July, 2020 but candidates will now be assessed and granted an admission based on an interview.
The interview panel will be a standardized panel based on recommendations of the admissions committee. However, the final decision rests with academic council and Executive Director of IBA Karachi. These changes have been made in the wake of deadly virus as mass gathering in admission tests can spread the disease to an unprecedented level. IBA’s Executive Director had previously stated that they will take up all the needed actions for continuing the academic activities, such as, online classes, online admissions and now an alternative assessment criterion. The dates for interviews will be declared soon.
