The need for this investigation is rooted in the necessity to upgrade the level of knowledge and skills among the graduates so that they can provide better opportunities for the prosperity of the Omani economy. The thesis takes stakeholder perspective on the quality of HE.

Qualitative and quantitative studies have been integrated and applied using a mixed method of research to provide an insightful understanding of the issues related to the quality of HE in Oman. To clarify the contextual specifics a chapter on Oman is presented.
