Institute of Quality Management (IQM)

Executive Director: Shafik Badran

The Institute of Quality Management focuses on the quality requirements resulting from increased economic integration on an international scale.  The exchange of goods and services across international boundaries has created increased competition among both local and international industries. As a result, the role of quality and quality management needs to meet international standards. To compete effectively in the world market, a company must produce goods or services which compare favorably to those available on the international market, and be environmentally friendly  at the same time.

The International Standard Organization (ISO) responded to these changes by issuing its standards ISO 9000 & ISO 14000, which describe in detail the requirements of quality  and environmental management systems.

The Institute of Quality Management assists local companies with meeting these challenges by offering a variety of programs designed specifically to address the needs of Egyptian executives. These programs acquaint them with management systems that satisfy the requirements of the new international standards.
