Education: The Weakness of Mauritius Confirmed

8 years, 5 months ago - August 06, 2013
The sky darkened a little more about the Mauritian education system. The University of Mauritius (UoM) is ranked 97th out of the top 100 African universities. The UoM is ahead and three tertiary institutions in Africa, namely Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, Tanzania, Gulu University in Uganda and Vaal University of Technology in South Africa.

This is what reveals the World University Ranking 2013 "4 International Colleges and Universities" (4icu) site. Mauritius, who nevertheless has a Ministry of tertiary education has risen from 25th place to 97th place in this ranking in the space of a year.

Many African countries from Sudan to South Africa via Malawi, Benin, Ghana, Zambia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Rwanda and Kenya, among others, and ahead of Mauritius in the field of tertiary education. In the region of the Indian Ocean, the University of Antananarivo Madagascar ranks far ahead of UoM in 31st place. As well as the University of La Reunion which is found in 40th place.

In the Webometrics ranking, published Friday, August 2, the UoM is ranked 59th in Africa and up to the 3714th place worldwide. In this classification also Antananarivo University ranks ahead Mauritius in 20th place in Africa and 1964th place worldwide.

In addition, it should be noted that Mauritius is absent from the top 50 "think tanks" of the "2012 Global Go To Think Tanks Index Report," prepared under the direction of James G. McGann of the University of Pennsylvania. In this classification, there are many South African institutions, but institutions of Kenya, Ghana, Senegal, Uganda, Nigeria and Tanzania, among others.

Warnings of various international institutions and, taken with the utmost seriousness. Namely that the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which speaks of the skills mismatch, the World Competitiveness Report 2013 (World Economic Forum), which evokes the mediocrity of the country's educational system, or an innovation underdeveloped highlighted by The Global Information Technology Report 2013 (WEF).
The Ministries of Education of the country have so much to do. As explained Ali Mansoor, Financial Secretary to the Ministry of Finance, to leave the trap through Mauritius, the income is essential to provide a much stronger link between planning and budgeting.

Under the system in place, it is explained that departments must decide with stakeholders in the industry that needs to be done (service level) to achieve the objectives established to bring Mauritius in the desired direction.Around this reflection on the objectives, the Economic and Social Transformation Plan (ESTP) must decide the means to achieve them. The budget will have the role of mobilizing resources to achieve goals. And, indeed, we must admit, preparing the next budget will not be easy for different departments.
