Quaid-e-Azam Dr. Khalid Mahmood


Vice Chancellor's Message


The University of the Punjab is committed to improving the standard of education with the aim of producing graduates who possess exceptional professional skills and exhibit qualities of outstanding character and wisdom. The inevitability of the development and technological modernization of the financial sector is apparent in the rapidly evolving landscape of the money and capital market. The financial and banking sector's role in facilitating financing operations by floating equity or debt, selecting projects that increase value, and overseeing the management of cash flows, risk, and liquidity on behalf of stakeholders is inevitable. The pricing of assets and derivative securities holds significant importance within the realm of financial markets. The field of finance is intriguing due to its perpetual state of transformation.
The financial services sector relies heavily on the banking sector as its fundamental support. The Hailey College of Banking & Finance (HCBF) is a distinguished constituent of the University of the Punjab. Graduates of the HCBF program possess a broad range of knowledge and specialized skills in Banking, Insurance, and Risk Management. It is with great pleasure that I observe the earnest endeavors of Principal HCBF, Dr. Ahmed Muneeb Mehta, as well as the faculty and administrative personnel, in augmenting the favorable educational milieu to facilitate the exploration of students' capabilities. The curriculum review is highly valued as it ensures that students are kept abreast of the swift advancements in the fields of business, trade, and information technology. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about significant changes in the business landscape. It is my belief that the HCBF will remain proactive in adapting and refining its academic pedagogy to align with the evolving demands of the industry and the workforce.
I extend my sincerest wishes for the utmost success of the HCBF graduates in all their future pursuits.
