Strategic Quality Management in the Arab Higher Education Institutes: A Descriptive & Analytical Study
Dr. Mohammed Ahmed Hamadtu Ahmed, Dr. Ahmed Gumaa Siddiek

Education is the concern of governments and states as well as individual persons. Good quality education aims at achieving learning outcome of high value. This is the main objective of any good educational institute or educational program.

TQM was-basically- implemented to develop profit-making organizations, but its application has also proved to help in solving internal and external problems in educational institutes at near and distant times. This paper sheds light on total quality management as a tool that can help in achieving the objectives of educational institutes in such a competitive modern global economy. Arab Educational Institutes have achieved poor ranks among world universities with little share in business worldwide, due to poor research contribution and poor learning outcome.

Our findings proved the critical and practical need for applying TQM in our Educational Institutions in the Arab world.
