This study made use of 5-point Likert scale questionnaire to find out the management quality factors. A total of 150 students from different universities were investigated through this questionnaire. SPSS 21 software was used for the investigation through regression and correlation analysis. Convenience sampling method was used, due to lack of time and resources for approaching the respondents. Only the university respondents were inquired to find out their satisfaction level. The results obtained were segmented into six hypothesis. Five hypothesis were accepted.
