The forum ‘LES ASSISES DE L’ENSEIGNEMENT SUPERIEUR’, will focus on higher education and research, in particular on five central themes, namely – internationalisation of tertiary education, quality issues, research and innovation, labour market needs and employability and management of higher education institutions. I would like to welcome the participants who are participating in this forum and who are prepared to share their views and observations with us and to discuss about the future of higher education in Mauritius.
