The data was supplemented through interviews from head of the QECs. Twelve best strategies are extracted, and the implementation of these strategies are evaluated through creating groups on dendrogram presentation in group analysis. Findings: Results highlight three groups; First group has ten strategies that are mostly implemented. Second group have one strategy that is moderately implemented, and third group have also one strategy that is never implemented in the business institutes in Pakistan.

Implications/Originality/Value: This study is limited for only business institutes so similar studies can be done with other disciplines to enhance it generalizability.
