LUMS is located in DHA Lahore. It offers degrees in Business studies (BBA /MBA), electrical Engineering, Computer engineering, Computer Sciences, Mathematics, economics, humanities and social sciences. LUMS has a beautiful campus and has hostel facilities for its students.

For admission in BBA program, LUMS has its own entrance test which is similar to SAT. Similarly for admission in MBA there is an admission test similar to GMAT. You can appear in the GMAT or the LUMS test. Both are accepted for admission. In addition you would need good recommendation letters from your teachers, and a statement of purpose explaining why you need to study BBA or MBA and what benefit will you get. Final selection is based on an interview.

LUMS has close to 2400 undergraduate students and around 1600 graduate students. Its library has more than 2000000 books and has probably the best faculty in the country. With lots of international linkages, students get exposure to international companies and research opportunities.

LUMS BBA and MBA graduates get the highest starting salary in Pakistan.

The cost of doing MBA from LUMS is Rs 600,000 per year for tuition and Rs 24000 per semester for hostel. In addition you ll have to pay around Rs 75000 at the time of admission.

The cost of doing BBA from LUMS is Rs 450,000 per year not including hostel facility which has the same cost ie Rs 24000 per semester.

In my personal opinion LUMS is the best University in Pakistan regardless of any ranking by HEC or any other agency.

      Dear Alex
      Actually LUMS is need blind and does offer full funding to deserving but poor students. Therefore fee is not really an issue as such.

      If you mean at LUMS, no you cannot as they do not have a 3.5 year MBA. Although at other universities you can get admission in the 3.5 year MBA program.
