Faculty of PHARMACY
Introduction
The Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Karachi owes its origin to the Department of Pharmacy, which was established in 1964. The Department of Pharmacy was founded in response to the need of better drug delivery system in hospitals and retail pharmacy, and also to cater the ever growing need of pharmaceutical industries because 90 percent of the drug based industry in Pakistan, both national and multi-national, is located at Karachi. The Department of Pharmacy was raised as the first full-fledged Faculty of Pharmacy in the country. The faculty comprises four teaching and research departments viz. Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharma-cognosy and Pharmacology. More than 1800 regular students are today pursuing their studies leading to the award of Pharm. D., M. Pharm., M. Phil., M.S. and Ph.D degrees. Eligibility Pharm-D (Five years Program): H. S. C.

2012
Career Opportunities Pharmacy as a distinct profession forms the edifice of the health care system on which lies success of wellbeing of the community. With the rise of population world wide during the last few decades, it has been realized that the conventional traditional medical and healthcare services are unable to pay any significant role in the overall improvement of health status. This realization has driven all health professionals to the common goal of disease prevention and health promotion. In developed countries the clinical direction of Pharmacy has laid emphasis on the manipulative product-oriented and distributive skills and focuses more on the public health awareness. Today the Pharmacy profession has become highly patient-oriented which this has created much more opportunities for the pharmacists in hospital and community especially in the USA and the Middle East, while in Pakistan still 75% opportunities are in the industrial sector. Faculty of Pharmacy has recently initiated Career Counseling Services in collaboration with PharmEvo Ltd. Around 400 students from batch I to III have been advised about their career. Currently 250 students of batch IV are being guided by this counseling service. Research Activities The Faculty of Pharmacy has so far produced around 70 Ph.Ds and 175 M.Phils. Moreover around 1200 research papers have so far been published in reputed national and international journals by the faculty members.

Biotechnology is defined as the application of biological systems to basic and technical and industrial processes. These processes are based on the use of some form of biological catalyst in the conversion of a substrate to a desired product. These biological catalysts are simple as enzymes or highly complex microorganisms or eukaryotic cells. Biotechnology includes a wide range of activities. Each activity is associated with its own starting material (bacterial, fungal, yeast, plant or animal cells or enzymes), technical manipulation (cell fusion, cell or enzyme immobilization, genetic engineering, etc.), processes (continuous and batch fermentation), and scale (small to very large), which are unique to that activity. Scope of Biotechnology Biotechnology can be viewed as a group of useful, enabling technologies with wide and diverse applications. It has large, highly profitable, modern industrial outlets of great value to society e.g., DNA recombinant technology, most revolutionary branch of the modern science and have a profound impact on medicine, contributing to the diagnostics and cure of hereditary defects and serious disease and the development of new biopharmaceutical drugs and vaccines for human and animal use. It also deals with the modification of microorganisms, plants and farm animals for improved and tailored food production and to increased opportunities for environmental remediation and protection. New technologies dealing with plant and animal breeding are much faster and have lower costs. Genetically modified crops are growing exponentially. The field is further exemplified with the industrial production of enzymes like proteases, amylases, celluloses and lipases, industrial manufacturing plants for milk and milk products,alcohols, organic acids, antibiotics,

hysical Education is a way of education by means of physical movement. From Molecular Biology to Material Sciences nothing of value can be expected from a society if the teaching and research in Health and physical education is ignored or if it is relegate to a secondary status. Being a natural phenomenon, movement is the essence of life and the entire mechanism of human body is geared to it. Experts believe that exercise is also as important as food. While food provides necessary energy for the body, exercise tones up the human organism so that it can utilize this energy in a better way. Since a healthy body is necessary for a healthy mind, physical education as a discipline is more intimately concerned with human development than educational disciplines. Physical fitness is not only a concept but it reflects a practical approach to human betterment in terms of health. The survival of a nation is undoubtedly dependent on physical fitness which ensures general proficiency in all walks of life, and is inevitably linked with better economic growth. It is needless to emphasize the importance of physical education as a discipline as it already stands recognized at the university level. All the advanced countries, realizing its virtues and benefits, have included this subject as an essential part of curriculum at all levels of education. The Department has been working strenuously towards a program of teaching and research to meet the needs of the country in Physical Education & Sports Sciences.

AREA STUDY CENTRE FOR EUROPE (ASCE)
Introduction rea Study Centre for Europe was established at the University of Karachi in the year 1974 by an Act of Parliament (ASC Act No. XLV, 1975) along with five other Area Study Centres in major state sector universities of Pakistan. The Centre undertakes research at M.S/Ph.D level. The research findings of the Centre’s own research staff are published in the form of books, monographs and profiles. The Centre also publishes the bi-annual Journal of European Studies, with articles on contemporary European issues and related topics. The Centre is now focusing its research on the European Union, its politics, law, competition policy, economics and external relations. European Security, Common Foreign and Security Policy, Europe– Pakistan relations, Europe and the Muslim World and Europe’s relations with the developing world are also amongst the subjects of research and teaching at the Centre. Since one of the aims of establishing the Area Study Centres was to provide feedback to policy makers in the country, the Centre also receives research proposals and assignments from the Foreign Office and other institutions of the Government of Pakistan. The Centre offers courses in French, German, Italian and English languages at the certificate level and diploma in the French language.

2012
Cooperation with the European Commission In September 1999, a European Union-sponsored program in European Studies was launched at the ASCE for a three-year period. It was a comprehensive program covering nearly all the activities of the Centre. Under this EU-sponsored program, the European Union rendered technical and financial assistance to the Centre. The updated curricula of the MS/Ph.D course work program (focused on European Union studies) was mostly taught in the first two years by Visiting Professors from European Universities and a Resident Expert from Europe. The Centre’s Academic Staff, now trained in European Union subjects in European Universities, have, after completion of the program in August 2002, taken over the responsibility of teaching these advanced courses in the program. Seminars, Conferences and Workshops The Area Study Centre for Europe arranges lectures, seminars and conferences on contemporary issues concerning Europe and the latter’s relations with the rest of the world. Local and foreign scholars, faculty members and senior students participate in these programs. The Centre held its first international seminar in October 1995 on Post-Cold War European Order and South Asia in collaboration with the Hanns Seidel Foundation, (Munich, Germany). To-date the Centre has held an international seminar each year in collaboration with the Hanns Seidel Foundation. Eminent scholars from Europe, Africa, Asia and Pakistan participated in these events. The Centre also held three International Conferences in cooperation with the Goethe- Institut Karachi to promote inter-cultural dialogue between the West and Islam. Faculty of the Centre

...A business undertaking is an organisation which is engaged in some industrial or commercial activity. It represents an institutional arrangement for carrying on any kind of business activity. It may be owned and controlled by a single individual or by a group of individuals who have entered into a formal or informal agreement to jointly conduct the business. Every business undertaking is a separate and distinct business unit. It has its own identity and separate ownership. It can be distinguished from other undertakings on the basis of its ownership, management and control. According to Wheeler, a business undertaking is a concern, company or enterprise which buys and sells, is owned by one person or a group of persons and is managed under a specific set of operating policies". Thus, a business undertaking may be defined as an organisation operating under separate ownership, management and control and carrying on any business activity with independent risk- bearing. All business undertakings are directly or indirectly engaged in the transfer or exchange of goods and services for value. They deal in goods and services on a regular basis. Their main motive is to earn profits and they are exposed to various types of risks. Characteristics of a Business Undertaking The basic features of a business undertaking are as follows: 1.

...The Business Enterprise 1.) Discuss the common elements described in the theories/philosophies of Case, Kouzes, and Drucker including how their principles/strategies relate to the new definition of entrepreneurial leadership presented in Understanding Entrepreneurial Leadership in today’s Dynamic Markets. Case, Kouzes and Drucker each have good theories and philosophies on entrepreneurship and leadership. Each had different ways of stating what they thought made a good entrepreneur but for the most part focus on some of the same things and agreed that with the right balance of these characteristics then succeeding, as an entrepreneur would be possible. One of the common elements that each focused on was people. Interaction with people is important when it comes to entrepreneurship and leadership skills according to Case, Kouzes, and Drucker. Each inferred that if a person does not have people skills, then the person would not succeed as an entrepreneur or a leader. People skills would be the ability to motivate others and interact. A leader cannot lead without being able to interact with people. Starting a business requires interaction with people on some level. Another common element that they all thought were important was not being afraid to take risk. Taking a risk in order to monopolize an industry to succeed is important. The definition of entrepreneurial leadership is one of an enterprising, transformational leader who operates in a......

...Business communication can take many forms, written and verbal. It can be between managers and employees within a company, or between a company and its customers, partners or suppliers. The purpose of business communication also varies, but it should always benefit your business. When carried out effectively, business communication can build your company's reputation, resolve and prevent conflicts, and contribute to strong relationships between your company, its customers and the business community. Build Customer Relationships Few businesses would grow or even survive without the benefits gained through marketing communications. You can take advantage of the wide variety of media available to let the public know about your products or services. Use business communications to establish your company as an authority or thought leader in your industry. Offer a white paper or online articles that discuss common problems business owners face and present your company's solution. A weekly or monthly newsletter to your prospects or established customers will help build trust by providing helpful tips and information. Occasionally sending out a direct mail or email survey will help you get to know your customers and better fill their needs. Freely sharing your expertise and gathering feedback from your customers will help you build a strong relationship with your customer base, and establish your company as a trusted expert in your industry.

...The United States exists in a capitalistic economy meaning that private enterprise is based on fair competition, economic freedom, and private ownership therefore; business is the heartbeat of our economy. Everything from manufacturing, health care, sales, and agriculture involves business in some way. Businesses provide jobs and produce goods and services that we depend on every day (What Role Does Business Play in Our Economy..?). They pay state and federal taxes to the government on their services provided. The taxes paid by businesses and the people employed by them allow the government to function. Looking at businesses in this way you can clearly see that business is a pivotal part of the economy. Within our economy two types of business organizations exist: for-profit and nonprofit. A for-profit organization will produce goods or services in the hopes of making revenue off its products. Most organizations you think of today are probably a for-profit establishment. Organizations that are classified as not-for-profit or nonprofit often operate under the guise of the emotional appeal of compassion but can also become major economic engines. They are business like establishments but unlike a for-profit business, their primary goals do not include making monetary profits. For profit businesses operate to generate revenue under the idea to have more profit than loss at the end of the day. Unlike for- profit businesses, nonprofits are organizations that are......

...Recording Transactions Keeping business records accurate and up to date is important for the smooth running of a business. The business owner must record all of the money coming into the business from successful sales of the product and all of the money going out, such as expenses including money owed for storage, wages that are paid and money to purchase the stock. If a business fails to do this it may find itself not chasing payments, forgetting to pay bills or, even in trouble with HM Revenue and Customs. If the business does not record its transactions correctly, it cannot report its financial performance accurately and therefore tax payments may be wrong. By recording the sales made, the business owner is given a clear indication of what’s popular and so it becomes clear what products should have increased stock or altered price. In your case, it is very important that you monitor your sales as a new business will most likely not make any profit straight away, so it’s vital to record your transactions so you are able to at least breakeven until more customers become aware of your business and you can start to make a profit. Furthermore, since you have negotiated a one month credit with a supplier, it is important to record your transactions so you know that you can repay the supplier after the month has passed and avoid any consequences. It would be beneficial to you if you could keep your credit supply as then you will have money coming in from your customers to......
