Building IT, Technology and Innovation Park in Karachi- A strong avenue for Economic Development in Pakistan

News Paper Article by Wajid Hassan

The IT industry of Pakistan has a potential to become major economic contributor to the country. Pakistan has only 125 CMM and ISO certified companies which guarantees on-time delivery and efficiency

Pakistan can help establish its name as a leader in quality software and IT Services in the world. Karachi being the ‘New York of Pakistan’ is highly favorable place to establish an IT park. The metropolitan area of Karachi has a population of more than 15 million, dozens of HEC-recognized IT departments and universities and great concentration of IT firms. Karachi is an International travel and financial hub. It is famous for its sea port and is the heart beat of economy of the country.

Trained professionals of IT over 100,000 and an increased number of educational institutes are adding a great number trained resources to the vibrant job market of IT ensuring that a talented pool of resources with exceptional skills is always available to this industry. But due to the lack of sufficient facilities and opportunities, most of the talent pool is unable to contribute to the development of the country. 

IT Technology parks provide the organizations a hassle free setup on friendly policies and low cost. State of the art facilities and office spaces are provided by the IT parks with the aim of expanding IT enterprises and providing a one stop solution for setups.

After 1970, many developing countries have established technology parks at regional and national levels for regional and economic development by providing infrastructure to tech-businesses for creating new opportunities of employment. The main aims for establishment of technology parks include knowledge flow and encouraging cooperation between industries and universities to create innovation firms, high-tech jobs and attracting the enterprises and foreign investment in the country.

Pakistan’s current software export is approximately 1 billion Dollars compared to Indian Software export of 111 Billion Dollars. With limited number of IT Parks where the Fast Internet, 24 hours availability of electricity, secured premises is available, we have stunted IT Sector growth in Pakistan.

There are only 8 IT Parks in Lahore including Arfa Technology park and only 5 located in Islamabad with None located in Karachi. Private enterprises have done a make shift kind of facilities where building owners ensure 24/7 hour electricity, security and uninterrupted fast internet but there is no such facility provided by the government

Pakistan is in a decisive stage. Decisions that are taken now will have a strong impact on the future of Pakistan. The need of the hour is to invest in making Pakistan a service based economy. IT industry is an example of service industry that can significantly boost the economy of Pakistan as demonstrated by other developing countries like Philippines, India and Singapore. IT industry unlike other industries does not require heavy machineries. Over 100,000 people are officially employed in IT industry of Pakistan and many more are employed informally. Unfortunately, IT industry in Pakistan is not given the same industry status as textile and this in some way impacted the development of this industry in the country. Pakistan has only a share of 0.9 percent of the global IT sector that is approximately 303.8 billion dollars. If significant steps are taken by the Government then it can have great effect on the GDP and foreign investment.

In spite of the challenges faced by the country including political instability, energy crisis and lack of promotion, IT sector of Pakistan has gained global recognition. There have been success stories in the various domains of IT like mobile applications, healthcare, finance and telecom. As Per reports by PSEB (Pakistan Software Export Board), the share of Pakistan in the global sales is 2.8 billion dollars, out of which 1.6 billion dollars accounts for country’s IT enabled services and software exports.

The main focus of Pakistan has been mainly higher end products of software, whereas other developing countries like Philippines and India have focused on more basic IT enabled services like services outsourcing and software.

Electronics Commission of India led the development work of India’s IT sector. Electronics commission’s work was supported by UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) and a master plan was developed for regional centers of computing. The key focus of the work was on knowledge development and intellectual capital. Today India shares 39.2 % of the global IT industry. The industry is continuing to develop almost and 230,000 jobs are generated every year. Almost 2.8 million direct employments and 8.9 indirect employments are being provided by the IT industry of India. Telecom and IT ministry of Pakistan can leverage large international organizations support to build similar regional IT Parks.

Another developing country where IT services development and promotion has played a great role in the development of the economy of the country is Philippines. Since 2006, the BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) industry of Philippines is developed 46 % annually and is overtaking the progress in IT sector in India.

The IT sector in Pakistan has great potential. However, there is significant need for development of IT parks and promotion in order to strengthen the economy of the country and to compete with other developing countries. Issues like lack of world class research & development, absence of state of the art infrastructure and payment gateways etc. have created difficulties in the development of this industry. With a clear vision, strategy and direction, the IT industry can grow in the country resulting in more employment opportunities and alleviating poverty from the country. Development in the IT sector of the country will attract foreign investments in the country which will also have an impact on other industries as well.

The establishment of technology parks is crucial for the economic development of the country. Software technology parks can be helpful in the creation of new businesses and attract foreign investments. Results show that half of the firms located in already established technology parks are startups. The IT parks already established in Pakistan are small in area as compared to other Asian counterparts such as India, China and Korea etc. This Study shows that to create new businesses, new jobs and to increase the GDP of the country, Government needs to establish more IT parks as well as promote research and development in the country.

UK Calling!

United Kingdom – the multicultural land of dreams and opportunities – is undoubtedly the most sought-after study abroad destination in the world, promoting an exceptional world-class education system, outstanding research facilities, and a culture that encourages academic freedom.

Most of their Bachelors’ degree programmes are completed within three years while Masters is done in a year.

  • Comparatively cheaper than studying in USA:

Studying in the UK gets comparatively cheaper than USA because international students in the UK are permitted by the government to work part-time for 20 hours per week during term time and full-time during the holidays; this is not allowed by the American universities. This is a great way to not only gain work experience in a study abroad destination but it apparently relieves students from financial pressure as well.

The British style of teaching as well as learning varies from the learning environment of the home countries of international students. The interactive learning atmosphere in Britain encourages students to think critically and express their opinions; simultaneously inculcating decision-making abilities and critical thinking skills in students. It further helps in the personal development of the students, driving forward their career prospects in future.

  • Improve your English language skills:

English is a lingua franca which is used extensively across the world. English is the official language of UK which makes it a top study abroad destination for international students to study in English. International students have the opportunity to practice and enhance their linguistic skills by interacting with the native speakers on a daily basis.  In today’s economy every employer seeks an individual who has a grasp on English; so, what better way can you find than to learn English in the country of its origin?

  • Explore different cultures and cities:

The famous British history along with its multicultural and multi-ethnic society attracts international students in hordes. Students can explore different cultures by travelling to European countries during their vacations. They can enjoy the beautiful countryside by travelling via Eurostar (high-speed railway service connecting London to Paris and mainland Europe).

What can an MBA degree do for you?

Do you need an MBA degree to get ahead in the business world? Definitely, yes! It is indeed an important degree if you are interested in business or would probably build a start-up somewhere down the line. Although, there is a plethora of diverse degrees in the academic world presently, but an MBA degree still holds its charm because this degree trains an individual to solve human as well as the technical side of the management equation. The generally popular hypotheses for people interested in getting an MBA degree is either an avid interest in pursuing a career in business management or it is considered as a golden ticket to financial success and a six-figure salary.

MBA graduates from highly-ranked business schools have an added edge and benefit over job applicants who unfortunately do not hold a postgraduate degree in business administration and management. However, studying in quality business schools of the world that award MBA degrees to graduates significantly helps them to achieve their dream jobs of getting into tech companies and finance industries of Wall Street or the Silicon Valley.

Due to the overcrowded and saturated job market for MBAs, there has been a recent boom and an introduction of varied MBA programmes (full-time, part-time and executive) by the business schools suiting the different needs of every student. A full-time MBA programme is an intensive programme that helps in accelerating career paths of the students.  While, a part-time MBA programme is apt for those who wish to climb the corporate ladder and are satisfied with their current jobs; whereas, an executive MBA programme is best-suited for experienced businesspersons who aspire to take their careers up a notch to further hone their management and leadership skills.

Multinational companies and their HR departments are of the belief that the job market is flooded with far more MBA graduates than it can actually accommodate and this dilemma gives rise to the difficulty in finding suitable jobs in top-class firms and companies. This predicament can only be solved if business schools refrain from minting money from students and offer multiple aspects of theoretical as well as real-world practical lessons to graduates in order to promote the growth of businesses. MBA programmes should entirely be knowledge and experience-based and similarly, universities should refrain from handing out MBA degrees to almost every individual who comes to them for admission. Rather, an MBA degree should be awarded to those who have work experience of a few years.

Unfortunately, our academic institutions fail to hire and welcome professionals who are in practice, such as MBA degree holders or other experienced professionals from the corporate sector to teach and advise students. These lecturers-in-practice would know what curriculum would work best and what would not. Similarly, it would revive an interest in MBA programmes and these MBA-awarding institutions would simultaneously remain in sync with the demands of the market and would produce leaders rather than managers.

Another win-win situation for MBA programmes can be achieved by introducing co-op programmes in universities. Under this programme, students can alternate between studies and work; they can attend universities for the first semester, undertake some work experience in the second semester, and finally return to university in the third semester with useful practical knowledge and experience of the real world of business. In this way, they would also be able to finance their own education themselves.

An MBA degree is globally recognised as it provides comprehensive business knowledge to graduates; it also reinforces their skills to help them advance to higher-paid jobs faster.  So, what are you waiting for? Discover the MBA programme at City University, UK, or if you wish to go for a cheaper and easier option then look no further as FES is here to assist you. Being the best study abroad education consultants in Pakistan, we have come up with the best MBA programme for you if you choose to study abroad in Edinburgh. This way you will understand how businesses are handled in a different country broadening your cultural horizon as well as your career prospects.

An MBA (Leadership Practice) programme at Edinburgh Napier University, located in the heart of Scotland’s capital, will enhance leadership and management skills of the graduates by providing hands-on practical experience to them.  Edinburgh Napier University takes pride in being among the top 5% of the universities worldwide. Students will gain knowledge through a combination of interactive learning experiences with experienced faculty members and guest speakers. This programme is easily payable through easy instalments over a period of 24 months.

It is time to turbocharge your career because now you are clearly aware of the rewards of earning an MBA degree in today’s global business environment. We have made the choice even easier for you by providing you information about the university; you only have to put all your documents in a folder, come to FES and file your application. See, FES makes lives so much easier for all of you out there. No doubt, it’s the best in town!

Importance of Scholarships

Scholarships – Ensuring a better tomorrow by funding your future goals

Applying for scholarships is not a piece of cake and requires tremendous effort from the applicant. It is similar to job applications where one-size-fits-all is absolutely discouraged. Just as a job applicant must avoid sending same generic cover letters to multiple employers, a scholarship applicant should equally create a new application for each potential scholarship programme. As soon as you take your decision to study abroad on a scholarship, you should start your preparation straight away as most of the scholarships take long to be processed and the application deadlines end early as well.

With the sky-rocketing college/university fees, scholarships are mandatory for students to pursue higher education. Scholarships carry the tag of prestige and honour for students and it is a continuous gift for life. There are several factors which determine the criteria for scholarship provision to students; for e.g. if they belong to any specific country, they wish to study a certain course; they belong to a particular society/organisation, and many others. Scholarships, thereby, provide an opportunity to all those talented students who might not have attended colleges because of financial constraints. The generosity of scholarship providers paves the way for students in the attainment of a dream degree. At the same time, this sentiment teaches the element of philanthropy to students. The best part about achieving scholarship is that it further motivates an individual to strive for even better; he/she has the zeal to be on the dean’s honour list throughout the academic year, have his/her name engraved on the gold medal, and the list goes on.

Types of scholarships:

You certainly have what it takes to give a chance to a scholarship application. FES believes that education is undoubtedly the most powerful weapon that can change the world so there should be nothing in this world that should stop you from acquiring education; therefore, we have listed various types of scholarships that can help you in earning a degree of your choice at an affordable cost. FES can help you find suitable scholarships conforming to your needs as there are a number of scholarships available to students in the form of various types of funding such as grants, prizes, fellowships and several others; and these are fortunately not completely dependent on students’ grades.

  • Academic scholarships:

These scholarships depend solely on students’ grades and their extracurricular academic achievements such as Olympiads, MUNs, conferences etc.

  • Need-based scholarships:

Those students whose families’ income is not at par with a certain standard are awarded these scholarships mostly by the government itself or by the universities themselves.

  • Sports scholarships:

You must have surely heard how ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ so get up, pull up your socks and go out to play because if you’re into sports then these sports scholarships are definitely a thing for those who exhibit outstanding accomplishments in sporting activities.

An important point that students must take into consideration is that not all scholarships cover the entire tuition cost and there are scholarships where students have to pay a specific amount of the tuition cost to the college/university; so apply for different scholarships as per your need. FES is at your service as always and has jotted down a few scholarship programmes to suit your different needs, such as a scholarship of $20,000 per year for undergraduates at Dayton University, USA, or a full-fee scholarship at University of Westminster, UK, and last but not the least, you also have the option to avail 25% international scholarships at University of Tasmania in Australia.

Okay, now that you surely must have decided to take the next step by filling up your scholarship application, please make sure that you have made the right choice in deciding the best scholarship programme for yourself. Make a checklist to see if you match the eligibility requirements of the scholarship programme and nothing has gone unnoticed.  Let me reiterate yet again that time is money and you should start this preparation at the earliest to make sure that you are not rushing in and panicking at the deadline hour. Sort out all your previous academic degrees, diplomas, transcripts, etc., your CVs/resumes along with your academic/work reference letters, your language certificates (such as TOEFL, IELTS, PET, etc.) and all the other relevant supporting documentation. Put all your documents in order before you start typing away your scholarship application. And yes, please don’t rely entirely on computers; you should never underestimate the power of hard copies of your documents so don’t forget to have the hard copies of each and every document handy because one wrong click and whoosh, your information vanishes in thin air.

C’mon now, get down to work, send that scholarship application to all your dream colleges/universities and wait patiently with your fingers crossed for their positive response. Good luck!

 

ENGLISH- Brings the world closer!

There are almost a billion people around the world who speak English but the interesting fact is that it is the first language of only one third speakers, while the rest of the people use it either as a second or foreign language. Pakistan is one of those countries where English is rapidly progressing and spreading; according to the current world listing, Pakistan is the third largest English speaking region besides United States of America and the United Kingdom which are the major English speaking regions.

The present-day growing need of English language has made its acquisition an important requirement for today’s student in order to survive in the global economy. This appears to be true for Pakistani students while applying to study abroad in foreign universities. IELTS or TOEFL is a prerequisite for getting admission in foreign universities and this speaks volumes about the necessity of not only fluency in English language but also the required scores in the proficiency tests to bag a seat in any prestigious foreign institution.

Despite the time and resources, majority of the Pakistani students are weak in English language. This factor is vastly witnessed due to the fact that requisite linguistic skills for future proficiency assessment are not provided to the students. It is vital in the context of Pakistan to implement standardized assessment procedures in order to obtain a clear picture about the language proficiency of students. The mastery of English language will not only help students in excelling in their academic lives but it will help them greatly in achieving better career prospects after graduation. Therefore, Pakistanis need to learn English in order to gain access to the international job market. In fact, the job market in Pakistan has become accessible only to those applicants who have at least an average proficiency in English if not exceptional.

The deteriorating quality of education has resulted in the recent paradigm shift towards the private tuition academies; this acts as a negative indicator of our education system where the foundation level of English is not focused. Therefore, ELRC (Education Learning Resource Center), has come to the rescue of students by providing the best teaching facilities and faculty in town focused on teaching skills to students, in order to help them solve the required tasks accurately rather than teaching them to be proficient only in grammar.

There is a wide variety of standardised English proficiency tests which measure the overall ability of the English language learners required in both educational and workplace settings. The purpose of this particular English language testing is to check the learner’s ability to use English language suitably. For example, in TOEFL (Teaching Of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System) etc., a number of tasks require a great deal of English language potentiality, and ELRC takes every possible step to enhance the communicative competence of not only its students but also the teachers who wish to further enhance their linguistic proficiency.

With ELRC now in town, students can avail the opportunity of being guided by its experienced faculty. Apart from IELTS/TOEFL preparatory classes, ELRC offers O and A-Level classes in all the subjects (ranging from Business Management, Sciences, Pre- Engineering to Arts), as well as GRE/GMAT classes.

Do not worry people; just click on the link because ELRC has it all under control!

EDUCATION CONSULTANTS IN PAKISTAN – NEED OF THE HOUR

The dearth of educational facilities and education consultants in Pakistan has given rise to the prevalent trend of foreign degrees, therefore making education the most promising business proposition in Pakistan.
While our colleges and universities proclaim of awarding ‘professional’ degrees to students, they fail to nurture and develop a skilled manpower that is ready to face the competitive global market. Our impaired education system is what is pushing the students to apply for foreign degrees. Why do you think our Sunday classifieds are filled with more advertisements of study abroad programmes and expos featuring international universities instead of our own local universities? A point to ponder!
Unfortunately, Pakistan’s education sector is in the doldrums; we need a massive educational overhaul or else we would be losing our talented students to the West. Pakistani students are flocking to the international universities because they believe that there is a vast job market for foreign degrees and a foreign degree is an added feather to their cap; it translates into better employment opportunities in their home country. Our students have a conviction that it would add value to their resumes and CVs. Due to this reason, they are ready to pay not only the fees for their degrees but are willing to invest in their future by believing in the education consultants in Pakistan.
Although the whole world is just a click away and getting admission in foreign universities seems convenient but professional assistance by study abroad consultants and foreign universities’ representatives in Pakistan is mandatory in guiding the students to the right path.
The constant guidance by the qualified education counselors throughout the admission journey in selecting courses and degrees conforming to the students’ personal interest makes it easier for the students to understand their potential. These consultants for higher education abroad truly understand the student’s ordeal of filing the application and all the other problems faced by them during the whole admission process.
