The Institute of Administrative Sciences was established in 1962 when a post graduate department for the teaching and research of public administration was started at the University of the Punjab. The U.S. Aid Mission provided technical assistance to the Punjab University to establish the program. The Institute of Administrative Sciences since its inception has played a pivotal role in national development. It joins hands with the nation in search for innovative and effective means of governance in public, private and non-profit sectors. By imparting state-of-the-art knowledge and skills, it helps in generating ideas, bringing people together, and preparing the next generation of leaders who value productivity, rule of law, equity, and justice. In keeping with this tradition, it has recently revamped the curriculum of the MPA program and introduced new areas of specialization including Information Technology, and Human Resource Management. In addition new Masters' degree programs have been approved in specific areas of management such as MPA-IT Health Administration, Human Resource Management and Management Information System.
