Muscat University (MU) has developed a comprehensive quality management plan that reflects its vision in developing and maintaining a high-quality management system that governs all MU practices. The MU quality management plan aims to ensure that the University’s strategic planning, development, improvement and quality assurance mutually inform and support each other. Furthermore, appropriate and transparent governance and management structures are in place to guarantee continuous progress in implementing and supporting quality assurance and improvement measures throughout the university.
