The University of Lahore is opening new avenues of education and training. With the rapid expansion of financial institutions in the country there has been an urgent need of developing experts in commerce, finance and accountancy. During the last decade, training of professional accountants has been strengthened in the country by several national and international institutions, but organized degree programmes In the discipline of finance and accountancy are not yet available.

Lahore School of Accountancy & Finance will go a long way in fulfilling this need. It is encouraging to note that innovative programmes have been initiated both at graduate and postgraduate levels. Our highly qualified professional faculty is developing work force for public and private institutions, I wish success to the Dean of LSAF for his efforts he is making. I hope he will keep in mind the recent developments in the field and will be able to apply his teaching methods with new techniques.
