Chronicling excellence: a history of IBA


Sibtain Naqvi



The IBA history book, “Chronicling Excellence: A History of IBA", is an attempt to capture this history. There are defined eras and historical points of interest. The institution partnered with international institutions, shifted academic operations between three locations, started multiple programs and produced the leading industry captains of the country. It did all this with a minimal amount of resources and in a challenging and fluid environment. The idea was to produce a publication that would be both instructive and illustrative, that it would provide a holistic narrative that would be readable and serve as a guide for other institutions and policy makers.
