We won… Experience Karachi 2012

Who would have thought that a bunch of people from a university not widely known will bag most of the awards by their remarkable thoughts and determination at an internationally acclaimed event? Well, I feel proud to be a part of such an amazing group of 11 students who represented TIP and actually made that happen.

I, Mohammad Ahsan Shah accompanied by Asad Jafri, Owais Zaki, Mohammad Ikram-ul-Haq, Adeel Aftab, Zehra Talat Abbas, Alizeh Ahmed, Fatema Millwala, Shaiza Jamshed, Iqra Jan Brohi and Iqra Izhar voluntary submitted applications and were lucky enough to be selected to participate in Experience Karachi 2012.

Zain Goplani in TIPtalk

Team TiES feels great proud in giving the students of this institute some very productive and informative personalities consecutively over the past few weeks so that the students should move along the competitive world by their personal grooming and motivation to be a remarkable representation of Textile Institute of Pakistan. A recent example was the session of TIPtalk where the students enjoyed, shared, mingled shouting out loud with what they think their strengths are, and were influenced by the deep voice and influencing words of Mr. Zain Goplani. On the other hand, we feel ashamed on some bad habits of the students here that they were late and most were absent giving off a low strength to such a person who could have changed their lives.

Zain Mustafa mesmerized TIP

TIP witnessed a great day of this leap year on a date we wait for four years to come. Apart from its importance, one of the most successful sessions of TIP Talk were held and organized by team TIES which had a turnout of about 150 students along with some dispersed faculty in the lecture theatre to control the discipline. Obviously, many didn’t know about the speaker they were about to listen and be surprised and inspired from.

GIA pros visit TIP

 Another session of TIP Talk was held in the past week which was much more humor oriented for the students rather than informative. A group of people representing the firm GIA, roamed around the auditorium and spoke on various topics in which their firm holds excellence. Not much of us knew about them and the contribution they did for our Apparel and Fashion Department when it was being set up.

Are business schools killing the entrepreneurial spirit?

‘Are business schools killing the entrepreneurial spirit?’, Kazim Alam explores this thought on Express Tribune Business Pages by building up on the results of a recent survey highlighting management students’ aversion from venturing into the entrepreneurial realm.

KARACHI: During an interactive session held in connection with the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011, the moderator asked a sizeable group of management students present in the audience if they wanted to be entrepreneurs after graduation.

Hardly 20% replied affirmatively. The rest of them said they would rather get a secure job, preferably at a multinational, which promised a steady income and growth.

Are our business schools turning out good employees while killing the entrepreneurial spirit of potential business leaders of tomorrow?

According to Haris Hamdani – who graduated from a private university in 2009 and now runs a clothing brand for men namely Red Tree – career counselling at the undergraduate level was more about getting a stable job instead of entrepreneurship.

“As such, there was no encouragement to be an entrepreneur. There was not even an entrepreneurs’ society at my university. I’ve heard now they’ve established one,” said Hamdani, who set up his first retail outlet at Dolmen Mall on Tariq Road in July 2010 in partnership with three of his classmates.
