Zeljko Sevic was the dean of OYAGSB from August 2016 to August 2018. Before he joined the School, he was the dean of the Faculty of Business at Sohar University in Oman. He has over 20 years of experience in the British higher education sector. During his tenure at the School, he oversaw the expansion of international partnerships and collaborations. In particular, he was instrumental in securing another international accreditation for the School. In 2018, the School received a six-year accreditation of CEEMAN, IQA which is an international accreditation based in Slovenia. Also, drawn from his vast academic experience, the School has managed to incorporate the best practices in teaching and learning to give our students quality education at par with that offered by international universities.

It was through his relentless effort in establishing meaningful connections that the School has managed to improve its visibility and relevance among the corporate and industrial partners inside and outside the country. The global partnership with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), United Kingdom is a testimony of his extensive network leveraged for the benefit of the School. The partnership with CMI has allowed our MBA programme to have a significant added value as students who completed the programme would be able to apply for a Chartered Manager status, a professional certificate that could help students grow personally and professionally and assist them in dealing with the challenges in the today’s global and dynamic business environment. The School has benefited much from his short tenure. Even though he may not see the launching of his brainchild programme, the Master of Business Management, he has paved the way for the School to be distinctively different. While he will be sorely missed, his ideas will remain strong.
