Rector - The Superior University

I am profoundly thankful to Almighty Allah for the remarkable achievements of Superior University in global rankings, being the top university in Quality Education (SDG-4), in the top 10 of the country and among the world’s top 400 600 universities by the esteemed THE Impact Rankings 2023.
Since my appointment as Rector of Superior University in 2016, I had envisioned that Superior University will not be a factory of unemployed youth and we will nurture youth to become job creators instead of job seekers. To achieve this mission and become a leading University in Pakistan in teaching, learning, research, and innovation, the first initiative I took with the support of my faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends, was to introduce Entrepreneurship Teaching and Training Program (ETTP). This program was designed with a strong conviction to develop an entrepreneurial mindset in our graduates and also empower them to make a social and economic impact. We developed our incubation centre, Innovation District 92 to facilitate our students to work on their innovative ideas and turn them into viable commercial businesses.
We also developed the national platform of SEE Pakistan to showcase their startups to a wider entrepreneurial community and launched Pakistan’s first business reality show Idea Croron Ka, to connect startups with the investors’ community. Another notable achievement was to innovate teaching and learning through our distinctive experiential learning framework, 3U1M Program. I can proudly share that within two years of its implementation, a hundred startups have got commercial and generated revenue of Rs. 800 Million. At the same time, 3U1M Program has improved graduate employability from 70% to 92%. To ensure our graduates’ global relevance, we have introduced 3U1M with Global Experience under the 4th stream “Superior Go Global” which will provide worldwide avenues for higher education, career and immigration opportunities. The global frontiers will transform our human resources into human capital that will contribute for economically Superior Pakistan. Looking ahead to becoming a leading research university that creates a broader educational and socio-economic impact through our strategic plan “Soar to Roar 2023-2028”, I challenge you to dream big, think bold and act a Superior way. May Almighty Allah guide and support us in realizing our objectives of developing youths into responsible citizens and
skilled professionals of tomorrow capable of contributing to economically Superior Pakistan.
