Mr. Mudassir Rafiq

MBA 2007

Senior Corporate and Investment Banker

Faysal Bank.



I did my Masters in Business Administration – Finance as major from Bahria University, Islamabad. I was part of the MBA 2.5 years’ program starting from 2004 to 2007. I started off my career at United Bank Limited (UBL) as a Management Trainee through Bahria University’s platform. After spending my carrier’s initial 7 years with UBL Corporate & Investment Banking Group (CIBG) as Relationship Manager I moved to HBL – CIBG. Currently I am working with Faysal Bank Limited, Corporate and Investment Banking as Resident Vice President. BU played a vital role in my career, as right after my final exams of MBA last semester, BUIC held a job fair in which different companies presented. Out of which one was United Bank Limited (UBL) which was offering its Management Trainee Program. In the Initial interviews 30 people were shortlisted for a written test and finally 8 were selected by UBL for a panel interview held at Lahore. During the interviews we came to know that we were competing with around 50-60 other candidates from IBA and LUMs. Finally, 25 people were made part of UBL’s MTO program. It was a matter of pride to know that out of the total selected candidates 4 were from Bahria University (Islamabad & Karachi) including myself. After Allah Almighty and my Parents, I owe my success to BU which provided me with the best education & teachers which built up my knowledge and confidence to compete in the job market and become successful.
