COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI) was founded in 1998. Initially named the ‘COMSATS Institute of Information Technology’ it was upgraded to a public-sector university in April 2018 under an act passed by the Pakistan federal parliament. At its Islamabad campus COMSATS introduced its ‘Master in Project Management’ (MPM) degree program in the fall semester 2008. Widely acknowledged and acclaimed, well over a hundred professionals from diverse industries and from both the public- and private-sectors benefitted through their participation in the MPM which was the first of its kind in Pakistan. In 2011 the MPM was transformed into the ‘Master of Science in Project Management’ (MSPM) program and a research thesis component was included. The COMSATS MSPM today remains one of the university’s most sought after graduate degree programs by students.  To learn more, visit https://www.comsats.edu.pk/
