Some have gone abroad for teaching in different world class colleges and universities across the globe. A very large number of NIPS graduates are working in leading think tanks of the country such as the ISSI, IRS, IPRI, IPS, ISSRA, Strategic Studies, JCS, etc. Our graduates are also proudly teaching in almost all leading universities of Pakistan including QAU, University of Peshawar, Abdul Wali Khan University, University of Malakanad, University of Swat, NUST and National Defence University.
