SBS is managed by a non-profit organization – Zayn Educational Trust (ZET). Its aim is to develop as a business school of excellence over time as Punjab despite robust agriculture and the industrial economy does not even have a management institute of national repute let alone international standard.
Most privately-funded academic institutions the world over depend on resources from corporations, charitable foundations, and alumni to meet their capital and revenue expenditures.
The attainment of objectives of imparting high standard of management education is resource intensive. SBS requires resources to attract qualified and experienced faculty, develop state-of-the-art civic facilities at campus, develop library facilities and dedicated wireless broadband facilities for the computer center, etc. and last but not the least earmark funds for undertaking research and scholarships for meritorious students.
