Muzaffar Bukhari

Muzaffar received a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Northwestern University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2006. Muzaffar has a MBA from Institute of Management Development (IMD), Switzerland, and graduated with distinction in leadership in 2011.

Muzaffar started his career with UBS Investment Bank, New York, in 2006. He later moved back to Pakistan to work in the financial services industry and was involved in asset management and commercial banking.

Having travelled to over 50 countries, attending executive education at Harvard Business School, Muzaffar knew that something was missing. He had an “aha!” moment on his trip to Finland, where he had the opportunity to spend time in Finnish schools and interact with educationists. Inspired by what he had seen, he imagined the way new, non-traditional systems of education could interrupt the standardized, rigid educational landscape of Pakistani education. He realized that he wanted to do something more meaningful –something transformative, something innovative. In 2015, Muzaffar found his true calling with Veritas Learning Circle (VLC).

Muzaffar is an ICF Certified Coach, RYT 200 Yoga Teacher (Bali) and a practicing therapist having completed his advanced diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counseling from CPPD, UK.
