Umecit – University in Panama

The University

Quality Assurance

For UMECIT, the quality of education and the high standards of education are at the core of its philosophy and teaching methods.

We are a team integrated by the Quality Management, Planning and Accreditation System. Complying with the standards established by the National Council for University Evaluation and Accreditation of Panama and the Accreditation System of Central America and Panama, our team designed objectives through which it seeks to contribute to the development of an institutional management based on a culture of quality.

The transformation and self-evaluation of managerial, academic and administrative processes are constant and are supported by the planning of actions corresponding to the substantive functions of university action, which represent the institutional identity seal based on our Quality, Mission, Vision, Values, Objectives and Philosophy, under the development of the Neo Cyberhumanist Curricular Educational Model.

Quality Management

The Quality Management System promotes the development of processes based on ISO 9001 Standards and compliance with quality standards. The objective is to systematically achieve excellence in the training of our students.

Similarly, we work on measuring and analyzing the level of satisfaction of the different interest groups: students, teachers and administrative staff with respect to the services provided in order to contribute to the continuous improvement of the Institution, through the implementation of actions that meet the needs and demands of our customers.

Planning Department

"The planning department is responsible for guiding the projection of the university from the preparation of the institutional development plan, based on the construction and coordination of the process of general diagnosis and SWOT analysis, the basis for the design of the PDI with its programs and projects that integrate it and are defined according to the areas or axes of strategic development for UMECIT. Likewise, this department monitors, controls, and evaluates its execution through the POA, which is essential for compliance with the substantive functions, vision, mission, and institutional objectives.

On the other hand, the planning department is part of the UTE, which is why it provides support to the accreditation and reaccreditation processes, as well as quality assurance processes”. 

Accreditation Directorate

Our team is responsible for designing, managing, coordinating and supervising UMECIT's accreditation and reaccreditation processes at national and international level, ensuring that the substantive functions comply with the institutional philosophy, as well as with the parameters and indicators that national and international entities demand as a condition of quality and excellence of our processes.
