The University Partnership in Business Administration in Pakistan was established in 2013 with $1.6 million dollars in funding from the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad to establish a partnership between the Gatton College of Business and Economics and five universities in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province of Pakistan (Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan, IMSciences, Kohat University of Science and Technology, University of Peshawar, and University of Science and Technology Bannu. Over the course of the next four years, 30 business faculty from the region were trained on research and teaching at the University of Kentucky and many more faculty participated in workshops in Islamabad. The Pakistani partnership, led by Associate Dean for International Affairs, Nancy Johnson, has resulted in two recent publications.
