Implementation of Governance in Private Higher Education Institutions in Oman: An Empirical Study
The aim of the research is to demonstrate the implementation of governance in the higher private educational institutes. A sample of 291 academic staffs from Omani higher private educational institutions was used to collect data following positivist hypothetical deductive observational method. Data was analysed using SmartPLS 3.0 where Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was introduced. Results confirm that a positive and significant relationship is sustained between participation, accountability, justice and supremacy of law with implementation of governance. No conventional relationship is found between transparency and implementation of governance. This paper is useful to decision makers, academics and stakeholders who help implement good governance in private higher education institutions. This paper lays out the key points and directions for good governance of Oman's private higher education institutions. The study includes global and geographic backgrounds. This paper further lays out a framework for adding value to good governance-performance research to add to the governance policy in the education field.
