Message from Director QEC

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the IBA Quality Enhancement Cell's website!

The Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) works with both internal and external stakeholders to ensure that IBA's academic quality undergoes a process of continuous improvement. We work with the Heads of Departments, Chairs, Program Directors, students and faculty to ensure a quality-based academic environment. At its very basic level, the QEC ensures compliance with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) directives for quality improvement. Furthermore, we work to assure and enhance quality by liaising with all stakeholders.

Moreover, the QEC liaises with regulatory bodies including HEC, national accreditation agencies such as the National Business Education Accreditation Council (NBEAC) and the National Computing Education Accreditation Council(NCEAC), international accreditation bodies such as Association of Management Development Institutions in South Asia (AMDISA) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), as well as academic quality organizations such as the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) and the American Society for Quality (ASQ). These linkages result in an incredible source of exchange of ideas for innovation in academia.

Additionally, the QEC forms part of the national network of QECs established by the HEC in higher education institutions. The IBA QEC participates actively in the national arena and ensures IBA is represented at all relevant platforms. As a connecting bridge between internal quality and external best practices, the QEC plays an important role in ensuring IBA continues to be at the cutting edge of innovation in academia.

The QEC maintains semester-wise course files, conducts surveys, shares survey findings with the management, administers the anti-plagiarism software and ensures timely completion of faculty evaluation. The QEC is always open to suggestions for improvements and looks forward to contributing to the improvement in the quality of the institute according to the national and international standards of education.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Regards,
Dr. Amber Gul Rashid,
Director QEC, IBA Karachi
