History and Background
Commecs College was founded in 1993 by Commecs Educational Trust (CET), a not-for-profit organization, formed by COMMECS (the alumni association of Government College of Commerce & Economics) in 1988. The trustees were concerned at the dearth of good educational institutions in the fields of business, science and technology. As its first step, CET established the Commecs Institute of Business Education (CIBE) in 1993 (Now known as “Commecs College”). Three programmes were offered:
- Intermediate Commerce (Affiliated with Board of Intermediate Education Karachi – BIEK)
- B.B.A (Affiliated with IBA Karachi)
- B. Com. (Affiliated with IBA Karachi)
The educational standards were set to conform to the vision of the founders. Encouraged and motivated by the initial success, CET launched the science discipline in the year 2003 and changed the name of the institute to Commecs Institute of Business and Emerging Sciences (CIBES).
In May 2007, CIBES received a charter from Government of Sindh and recognition from Higher Education Commission (HEC) as a Degree Awarding Institute and started its own BBA and MBA degree programmes, at 40-B PECHS. With this status IBA-affiliated programmes were discontinued.
In the year 2013, on the occasion of 20th anniversary, Commecs College announced the launching of a new campus in Block 6, PECHS. Today, the PECHS campus stands among the most prestigious private colleges of Karachi with 100% result of its first two batches in BIEK examinations. In the beginning, the campus offered admissions in Commerce only but started intermediate program in Science (Pre-engineering) also from 2015.
The Jauhar Campus, on the other hand, is offering admissions in the following disciplines.
- Computer Science
