NBEAC 4th Deans and Directors Conference 2017http://hecportal/english/PublishingImages/EventsImages/banner.png, http://hec.gov.pk/english/PublishingImages/EventsImages/banner.pngNBEAC 4th Deans and Directors Conference 2017<p style="text-align:justify;">​​​​NBEAC's Deans and Directors Conference annually brings together more than 100 deans and directors of business schools for strategic level discussions.  This year's conference will focus on the balance required between global paradigms versus the need to customize business education in Pakistan according to the local needs. Both businesses and business schools in Pakistan – small or large, urban or rural – face competition for products and services created by the spread of information technology and globalization. However, our context, culture and heritage demands a certain degree of indigenization in management practices and in business education. The conference program is designed to increase the effectiveness of business education in Pakistan, through debate on the mentioned issues and through related refinements in the accreditation process.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Objectives:</strong><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To evaluate the extent to which business education in Pakistan is preparing graduates to contribute to the local and global economic activities.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To identify unique themes and specializations for business education in Pakistan, keeping local needs and global trends in perspective.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To discuss the balance between indigenous vs. international curriculum content for effective business education in the country.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To share the experiences of education leaders from Pakistan and other countries, of creating a balance between indigenization and globalization of business education in their countries.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To identify ways in which accreditation can be used as a framework for addressing the challenges associated with convergence and divergence.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong><br></strong></p>01-02-2017 10:51:0315{5571557f-beb9-4225-b81e-28db7c8d584d}https://www.hec.gov.pk

National Forum 2016 on Higher Education in Pakistanhttp://hecportal/english/PublishingImages/EventsImages/4.jpg, http://hec.gov.pk/english/PublishingImages/EventsImages/4.jpgNational Forum 2016 on Higher Education in Pakistan<p style="text-align:justify;">​The world has changed, and continues to change, at unparalleled speeds. Education and skills requirements for the future will have completely new dimensions, and global education systems will need to adapt quickly to equip the worlds' young people for the new demands.  It is time to rethink education systems, the stakeholders and the foundational concepts. We must ask ourselves some critical questions.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">In an age where Information is already accessible at everyone's fingertips, it is likely that we will have access to a level of technical knowledge that we cannot conceive. We will all have to learn to differentiate between information and knowledge. Subjects such as math, science, languages and more, while still forming the basic foundation, can no longer be the sole focal point for education. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Education Systems will be required to produce the six "C"s:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><strong>Critical / Analytical Thinkers</strong>: As more and more information becomes available at the click of a button, the ability to analyse, connect unrelated areas, and apply technical information to complex problems will become increasingly important. </li><li><strong>Creative Thinkers</strong>: In the cut paste world, originality and creativity will become increasingly rare. It will be important for education systems to nurture creativity, originality and the creation of new knowledge.</li><li><strong>Collaborators</strong>: Complex problems will require multidisciplinary, cross sectorial thinking and collaborative working approaches. Teaching and learning styles need to change to embed this into the education system as early as possible. </li><li><strong>Continual Learners</strong>: The requirements of increasingly practical, technical skills when entering the job market, increased demand for work/life balance by millennials, a rapidly aging workforce without those skills and longer life spans will all mean that learning will need to be a lifelong process.</li><li><strong>Citizens of the World: </strong>An increasingly complex world will require global citizens who will be able to understand the "big picture" and establish the foundations for new governance structures as borders collapse and physical resources become increasingly scarce.<strong> </strong></li><li><strong>Compassion /Tolerance/Peace Keepers: </strong>The current violence in the world more than ever reflects the absolute need for compassion and peace to be embedded into all education systems. </li></ul><p style="text-align:justify;">The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan is organizing this National Forum on Higher Education in collaboration with PEP Foundation, Inc. on 19<sup>th</sup> October, 2016 at HEC, Islamabad. It will be composed of opening/ closing and interactive discussions resulting in tangible action plans for improvement in our Higher education institutions.
