Non-Business Background Candidates
Students from non-business background may be required to take additional course work to cover for the deficiency assessed in business courses in 3 broad categories including, Mathematics, Computer Sciences & IT and Management Science. Details are as follows:

Pre-Requisite courses for Eligibility 

Since MS L&SCM is an interdisciplinary degree, it is expected that potential candidates joining this program may come from diverse background such as IT, engineering (civil, mechanical, software, electrical, electronics, mechatronics, computer, industrial, chemical, metallurgical etc.), business management, Economics, Agriculture etc. HEC requirement of 30 credits worth of relevant coursework cannot be fulfilled perse as such a degree is not offered in bachelors anywhere in Pakistan.

However a list of 3 broad categories of subjects are presented below. Within each of the 3 broad categories various courses are listed. A total of ten courses or 30 credits hours of UG coursework in business subjects may be required to fulfill the HEC requirement. In case of different nomenclature o​f courses, the admissions committee is going to decide on a case to case basis. Any shortfall needs to be met by attending additional courses offered by the School.
