Dress code[edit]

Nust Business School requires its students to conform to a relatively strict dress code while on campus. For male students, the dress code is a dress shirt and pant with a tie while for female students it is a shalwar kameez and dupatta. The administration states that the dress code is not meant to limit students creativity and that they are simply trying to instill a spirit of professionalism in them. But students are of the view that this creates certain psychological perceptions that hampers them to express and voice their ideas and opinions like other universities. The issue has been brought to the public eye by different media channels as well but to no avail. Students are fined Rs. 500 for violating the dress code (e.g. wearing round collared shirt) each day which resulted in backlash as well, but it is still being practiced by the management.

Degree programs[edit]

NBS offers degrees in both Bachelors and Masters level.
