The MS program is essentially a research-based degree program intended to investigate and find solutions to the problems besetting our national economy. The MS Management program offered by Mohammad Ali Jinnah University has attracted students from different parts of the country. It is an ideal program for anyone wishing to undertake research into management and its related disciplines. The program provides substantial training in a range of research techniques and methods used in the social sciences, and an understanding of their theoretical and philosophical underpinnings. The research-based dissertation enables our students to apply research skills and develop in-depth knowledge in a specialized area. Our philosophy is that postgraduate business and management students need the understanding and skills associated with high-quality academic research. This approach applies equally to those who become either academic scholars or professional practitioners. This program also serves as an entry point for our doctoral Program.
