The Business Studies Department of Nizwa College of Technology is aspiring to provide students with a happy learning environment, incorporating traditional as well as newer learning techniques. The focus is on learning rather than traditional teaching and the students are at the core of this process. One of the approaches being promoted in the department is to address the attitude of the students, as attitude is an important component of the Knowledge, Skills and Attitude triad of learning, but unfortunately eclipsed by the heavy weights of knowledge and skills.

In addition to essential subjects like Business Ethics, Formal Logic and Job Search Technique, many soft skills are being imparted to the students in an endeavor to develop a 'complete citizen' rather than a knowledgeable and skilled individual. Empathy is the key to mould the sensibilities of the students towards business and human interaction.
