—As students in the private higher institutions of
learning (HILs) become more discerning about the quality
learning environment, especially in teaching, the HILs are
striving to create a learning environment that can produce
graduates of top quality. Apart from the teaching process itself,
the goal of teaching is to improve students’ learning by
maximizing opportunities for learning. However, in many cases,
the lecturers and the systems themselves fail to transfer
knowledge to students effectively despite the presence of good
facilities and infrastructure. This paper attempts to identify
students’ views on the importance of having a good teaching
management and the satisfaction level they experience with the
current situation in their university. A set of questionnaires was
distributed to students in private higher learning institutions
who enrolled in an undergraduate business-related program.
Respondents were chosen from the first year to the final year
students. The main outcome of this study is to identify what
good education means in the context of having good
infrastructure, team of good and competence educators, the
syllabus, resources and the teaching process.
