Quality Education is critical for technological progress across the globe. Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood are strong advocates for accessible quality education in Pakistan and across the globe.
In the age where technology runs the world, it is necessary that all states around the world have access to proper education. Since the growth of the internet and digital world, it is imperative for the massive population of youth in Pakistan to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to get them future-ready for today’s world.
With each year, the need for quality education continues to swell.
Remarkable philanthropists Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood have contributed heavily to the development of educational institutions around Pakistan to offer access to quality education about the modern world to the youth of Pakistan.
Dawood Educational Institutions
In 1986, the Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) was enacted. As the first school to function at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), the SDSB sought to provide practical and realistic global knowledge to the Pakistani students. It also acquired a challenging but relevant curriculum that would encourage critical thinking and problem-solving amongst the students.
SDSB was heavily sponsored by Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood. The school was also named after Bashir’s father, Suleman Dawood.
Heavily supported by ivy league institutions like the University of Western Ontario and Harvard University, the SUSB promotes innovation and creativity to empower the youth of Pakistan to take ownership of their learning.
Since its enaction, SDSB has been strongly supported by a “Visiting Committee” of international academic personnel and administrators. These representatives hail from world-renowned institutions such as Stanford, Cambridge, McGill and the Asian Institute of Management.
Access to Relevant Curriculum and Quality Education
SDSB is committed to offering education that’s relevant and applicable to the digital and business world. SDSB provides the following:
- Bachelor degrees – Majors in Accounting and Finance, Management Science
- Full time/weekend Master of Business Administration (MBA)
- PhD courses
- Short-term courses for executives through Rausing Executive Development Centre
To date, Bashir Dawood & Mariyam Dawood continue to fund and support educational institutions in Pakistan to make quality education accessible to the youth in Pakistan and promote the formation of a more robust and competent working force in the future.
