SAF Experience

At School of Accounting and Finance, we provide a congenial environment for learning and grooming of the students. Here, we emphasize an overall development of personality traits, spirit of learning and growth in our students. The faculty members act as mentors and support students so that they become honorable citizens and skillful professionals in their practical lives. The faculty encourages creativity and participation. Students are encouraged to actively participate in the classrooms and discussion based lectures are also promoted. We have broadened commerce education by involving students practically in the classrooms, providing comprehensive study programs, linking information technology with all the relevant subjects of study programs, and giving special emphasis to communication and presentation skills.

At School of Accounting and Finance, conventional methods have been replaced by modern learning and teaching methods. We have added presentations, workshops, study circles, seminars, simulation exercises, case studies, and research work in the classroom teaching techniques to provide cutting edge advantage to our students over others.

University of Central Punjab provides the best educational and extra-curricular facilities to its students in terms of modern infrastructure like classrooms, computer laboratories, library, auditorium, cafeteria, food-street, sports complex, swimming pool, and other recreational facilities. SAF encourages its students to benefit from these facilities, so that they stay healthy and be creative in their lives. The university also invites its students to join various clubs to exhibit their un-explored talents.
