Dans l’optique de faire de Maurice une économie axée sur l'innovation, le gouvernement souhaite positionner le pays comme la plaque tournante de l’éducation dans la région. Maurice est aujourd'hui un important prestataire en matière d'éducation de qualité et attire de plus en plus d'étudiants locaux et internationaux.

Etre une plaque tournante régionale dans le domaine de l’éducation et de la formation de grande qualité dans l’industrie du savoir, servira de catalyseur pour Maurice en vue d’élargir son économie et d’apporter son soutien aux secteurs existants et futurs. D’emblée, cette transformation nécessitera l’apport d'une main-d'œuvre qualifiée, hautement compétente et productive, de manière à attirer une nouvelle génération d’investisseurs et à maintenir la compétitivité du pays.

  • "I am privileged to be welcomed to live, intern and study at such a diverse and welcoming country. My living and working in the education and training sector in Mauritius have helped me learn how to integrate well with the Mauritian culture and people. I even wrote my final thesis on Mauritian higher education! I am constantly awed by the beauty of the country and its people. The Mauritian youth are some of the most talented youth I've met and I'm excited to continue working with their learning development."
