The commitment to quality within UBT can be traced back to 2004, when the first Quality Assurance Unit was established, within the College of Business Administration (CBA). At that time, the role of the unit was to promote the quality culture among all CBA Faculty and Staff, as well as, establishing an internal Quality System aiming to achieve national and international accreditation.
With the establishment of the other colleges, the Quality Unit aimed at serving the quality and accreditation needs of the new colleges. In 2012, after UBT became a university, a Vice Rectorate for Quality and Development position was created, aiming to oversee the Quality and Development activities across all UBT colleges and divisions.
In order to enhance the continuous quality improvement, a Quality Management System was developed covering all university deanships and divisions. Its main objective is to maintain the quality of performance and fulfil quality assurance standards throughout the university both academically and administratively. Moreover, a teaching and learning center TLC was established in 2012 to provide faculty members with various trainings to enhance the quality of teaching and learning. In 2017, TLC has been changed to Faculty Development Center FDC serving the same purpose. Besides that, to take the university to the next level of excellence, the Quality & Development Division was changed to Quality & Development Deanship in 2018.
