In view of developing Mauritius as an innovation-driven economy, the Government of Mauritius aims at positioning Mauritius as the leading education hub for the region.  Mauritius is today a significant provider of quality education. Building upon this reputation, Mauritius is attracting an increasing number of local and international students.

The development of Mauritius as a regional hub for high quality education and training in the knowledge industry will act as a catalyst in broadening the Mauritian economy and in providing necessary support to the existing and upcoming sectors. From this outset,  transforming Mauritius into a knowledge-based island would require the contribution of highly productive skilled and qualified workforce so as to attract new generation of investment and to maintain the country’s competitiveness.
