MS (Project Management)

SZABIST offers an MS Degree (M. Phil. Equivalent) in Project Management. The purpose of this program is to provide research-based project management education related to a student's field of interest. By providing the requisite skills and knowledge, the program paves the way to pursue doctoral studies.

Recognizing that concentrated studies are a challenge for working professionals during regular weekdays, we have designed MS in Project Management as a weekend program. The classes are offered on Saturdays and Sundays. A total of ten courses (including a 6-credit thesis) take a minimum of 1.5 years to complete. To obtain the MS degree, the student should have successfully completed a minimum of 30 credit hours, and have passed the GAT examination.

The maximum time limit to complete the MS degree is five years.


For admission in MS Program, the candidate must have:

  • Sixteen years of education from HEC any recognized educational institution with minimum 2nd division 55% marks / CGPA 2.50 and one year work experience in managing projects.
  • A computer-based on-campus entrance test and interview at SZABIST.
  • A valid NTS/GAT result of 50% marks.
Candidates with non-business undergraduate degrees are encouraged to start in our MPM program and then transfer to MS(PM) program under the “MPM-MS(PM) bridge track”.

Financial Assistance in the form of Teaching/ Research Associate ship is available to needy and meritorious students subject to availability. Candidates should apply early.
