The Department of Business Studies started its programs of study in September 2003 with the aim of promoting management education in the Sultanate of Oman in particular and the Gulf region in general. Currently, the academic programs are at the Diploma, Advanced Diploma and B. Tech levels focusing on two specializations: Human Resource Management and Accounting and Finance.
Guided by the mission of providing student-centered education, the programs are designed to deliver challenging curricula which focus on developing graduate attributes vital to the development of Sultanate of Oman. The courses are delivered following the guidelines of outcomes-based education which faculty members use as basis for the design of learning objectives and classroom activities. Classes are supplemented with other learning methods i.e. seminars, on-the-job-training, industry exposures etc.
Faculty members from a diverse background have been carefully selected to deliver courses in their expertise. They continue to improve on both course content and delivery as they are exposed to staff development programs in teaching and learning.
