Welcome to Université des Mascareignes

With the globalisation of the world economy, Mauritius needs high calibre manpower to succeed.

In order to meet this objective, an adequate supply of qualified technicians and associate professionals will be required to service different sectors of the economy.

In this context, the Université des Mascareignes (UdM) was set up in 2012 with the primary objective of providing an education of international standard for students to operate at middle and higher levels in the services and industrial sectors of the Mauritian economy.

Excellence in knowledge is the currency of the new global market. Our motto rightly states: ‘Savoir, c’est pouvoir’. Read more ....
