COMMECS Educational Trust (CET) is a not-for-profit organization, formed by “COMMECS” (the alumni association of Government College of Commerce & Economics) in 1989, who were concerned at the dearth of good educational institutions in the business, technology, education and management sciences. The main objective of CET is to find ways and means to bring a quantum change in the quality of education in the country and develop human resources and skills by establishing centres of learning for seekers of quality education and practical expertise.
As its first step, CET established the Commecs Institute of Business Education (CIBE) in 1993 (Now known as “Commecs College”). Three programmes were offered:
- Intermediate Commerce (Affiliated with Board of Intermediate Education Karachi – BIEK)
- B.B.A (Affiliated with IBA Karachi)
- B. Com. (Affiliated with IBA Karachi)
The educational standards were set to conform to the vision of the founders. Encouraged and motivated by the initial success, CET launched the science discipline in the year 2003 and changed the name of the institute to Commecs Institute of Business and Emerging Sciences (CIBES).
In May 2007, CIBES received a charter from Government of Sindh and recognition from Higher Education Commission (HEC) as a Degree Awarding Institute and started its own BBA and MBA degree programmes, at 40-B PECHS. With this status IBA-affiliated programmes were discontinued.
Commecs College at present is running an Intermediate Programme in affiliation with the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK), offering the disciplines of:
- Computer Science
In the year 2013, on the occasion of 20th anniversary of Commecs College, CET announced the launching of a new campus in Block 6 PECHS and is currently offering intermediate in Commerce and Pre-Engineering Disciplines.
