This thesis investigates the dynamics and impact of student politics at the Institute of Business Administration (IBA). By delving into the world of student government and organizations within the institution, the research aims to uncover the motivations, challenges, and consequences associated with student political engagement. Through qualitative research methods including interviews and surveys, the study captures the perspectives and experiences of IBA students involved in student politics. The findings shed light on the power dynamics, governance structures, and the role of student organizations in representing student interests. Furthermore, the research explores the initiatives taken by the administration to foster positive politics, address power imbalances, and promote merit-based decision-making. By contributing to the existing literature on student politics, this thesis provides valuable insights into the unique context of IBA and offers recommendations for enhancing student engagement and inclusivity in institutional politics. The findings contribute to a deeper understanding of the role of student politics in shaping the lives of students and inform future policies and practices at IBA and similar educational institutions.
