Course Description

The growing importance of Entrepreneurship, both as a full-fledged academic discipline in itself and as a driver of economic growth and democratisation of the economy cannot be underestimated. The Open University of Mauritius (OU) is offering the above programme with inputs by the Commonwealth of Learning(C.O.L).
The aim of this programme is to address the lack of entrepreneurship skills locally and support the creation and growth of small businesses. Small business success will lead
to a better quality of life for the entrepreneurs and their families and will result in a stronger domestic and regional economy. The graduates produced can thus create
start-up businesses. Moreover the above programme will produce business leaders and entrepreneurs who are visionary, realistic and driven to develop innovative
business ventures.
Today Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in the development of the Mauritian economy. According to statistics, SMEs contribute to 37 % of GDP
(Gross Domestic Product), produce some 120 billion rupees worth of output annually and employ 250,000 men and women. Therefore, it is essential to maintain the long
term sustainability of our country which can be achieved by ensuring the largest number of participation in these types of businesses in the economy.
