Accounting and Finance

Oman’s banking and finance sector is a very stable one due to its tight regulation, according to an Oxford Business Group research in 2016. This is because it is controlled by a small number of institutions that make up the market share, which may mean that job opportunities are stable if a little hard to find. For that reason, the Omani government started the Omanisation initiative, which gurantees employment to Omani nationals with university degrees.
