The Award was presented at the 34th Corporate Excellence Awards ceremony of the Management Association of Pakistan which was recently held in Karachi. MAP has been organizing the Corporate Excellence Awards, which are considered a benchmark for corporate excellence in the country, consistently since 1982.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Abdul Bari Khan said that MAP’s contribution in imparting management education and developing management professionals in the country was unparalleled.
