I take great pride to be known as the Dean of Muscat College, which is one of the first few private colleges of Oman established in 1996. Muscat College history and reputation is built by generations of different stakeholders including students, staff, parents, sponsors, employers, industry and Ministry of Higher Education. The College aims to be in the top echelons of Oman’s private higher education institutions and is taking major strides through its strategic planning, choice of international affiliations and accreditation process to achieve the same.

Our students are known to enjoy a vibrant and transformational college experience that is built through outstanding leadership, teaching, extra-curricular activities and support services.
