UBT's Governance Structure


UBT’s Governance Structure complements its Academic Structure and has been through several evolutionary stages and is still subject to change. This is natural for a growing University, however, it should be emphasized that UBT’s strategy is neither to be a duplicate of a public university, nor does it intend continuous growth. The capacity that UBT decided upon is to stay as a private small to medium size university of 5 to 6 thousand students. The existing organizational structure (Click here) is depicted in the following chart whereby it can be seen that the Rector (CEO) is in charge of all academic, as well as administrative functions of the University. Along with the help of the Deputy Rector, Vice Rector for Academic Affairs (VRAA) and Vice Rector of Quality and Development (VRQD), they run the university operations.

The Rector, Deputy Rector, VR's and Deans implement strategies, policies, procedures and by-laws mandated by the BOT and UC. The Decision Making (DM) process actually flows from the bottom upwards starting at the Departmental Level (Department Council), College Level (College Council) and University Level (University Council).
