TSA at a Glance
The founder of TSA aimed to establish a different type of institute – student-centered, deeply focuses on the quality of education with the comprehensive program profile and deeply engaged with the Financial Services community. These characteristics shaped our history. The competitive and regulatory forces of the time meant our academic profile was restricted to important, but niche, areas; Accounting and Finance. In this first phase, TSA was operating in a narrow sphere of influence, without the chance to offer Accountancy and Finance education to attracting an academically broad student cohort. The school entered its second decade with one campus and fewer than 1,500 students. But the changes driven by the economic crisis which takes accountancy education in center stage in any discussion of development strategy, in 2011 saw TSA expand dramatically. Campuses were expanded, adding to the TSA’s size, strength and diversity.
No institution more successfully or enthusiastically embarked in accountancy educational services in Karachi region on so many collaborations and invested so heavily in its physical and human capital. New, purpose-built facilities for the P.E.C.H.S and North Nazimabad were built and the school started a new campus at Clifton. The P.E.C.H.S campus was transformed from three buildings, a car park, 3,500 students and a small number of enthusiastic staff into the School’s largest campus – a Career Development Center in its own right. TSA grew in depth and student centered reputation.
At its 20th anniversary, TSA looked very different from its origins – larger, multi-campus, multi-cultural, focused steadily on its growth, on its research and teaching performance.
Since its foundation, TSA has grown to an institution and consolidated its position as an influential institution with over 3,500 students are studying at campuses in P.E.C.H.S, North Nazimabad and Clifton Karachi.
TSA is known for its existing areas of strength and achieving core outcomes: a high quality student experience through innovative teaching practices; a profound commitment to equity; emergence as a powerful and respected career development institution; and an enduring commitment to engagement with local communities, with business and with the region through its research and teaching
