Abstract

The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR) in Yemen is increasingly giving attention to the role of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the Yemeni education sector and intends to enhance Yemeni competitiveness in the region. ICT are increasingly becoming very important for supporting decision-making processes. In fact, the Ministry of Higher Education in Yemen recognizes such roles and therefore, initiated a process for development of ICT Policy for Higher Education in Yemen. The overall goal of this paper is to review the recent progress made at the policy and the operational levels regarding the utilization of ICT in supporting decision making in the Ministry of Higher Education in Yemen. This paper attempts to analyze whether policy and operational changes in the Higher Education sector in Yemen are adequately inspiring for positive impact to meet the challenges of ICT integration for decision-making. Furthermore, it seeks to figure out the possible policy implications that put forward adequate emphasis on the integration of ICT for supporting decision- making processes to ensure a maximum use of ICT potentials in the Higher Education Systems in Yemen.
