Deanship of the SDSB

Endowing the deanship of SDSB is a powerful way to secure the quality of education and research at LUMS. With only four academic deanships in all of LUMS, a permanent named fund confers further honor on the holder that is recognized in higher education worldwide.

SDSB New Initiatives Professorship

SDSB’s future development and growth is directly dependent on its faculty, and especially on the addition of new faculty members, to build and strengthen specific areas of management expertise at the School. Endowing a New Initiatives Professorship enables SDSB to recruit a leading scholar into its academic community by adding an incremental faculty position.

SDSB Professorship

One of the strengths of the SDSB is the quality of its faculty; they are renowned academicians, practitioners, as well as thought-leaders in their fields. Awarded to an existing faculty member, an endowed professorship enables the School to maintain the stature and excellence of its faculty.

Visiting SDSB Faculty

Endowed gifts to support these positions allow SDSB to recruit exceptional thought leaders and fund their full participation in the School’s activities.
