Today the nation needs young and competent professionals who can perform to the expectations of the changing economy. In essence, the quality of educational institutions becomes crucial that their existence needs to be prioritized and continually improved. Quality is the key to success and as an embryo of improving the quality of a nation. The process component is vital in improving the quality of education; the practice includes teaching, training, mentoring, evaluating, extracurricular and managing. Furthermore, the output includes knowledge, personality, and performance. To be effective in the current environment, professional education should provide a broad intellectual understanding of the new paradigm, newer decision-making techniques with the support of newer technologies, and work in different cultures and environments.
