About ICSIA

ICSIA, which stands for International Campus for Sustainable and Innovative Africa has been launched in 2015. The ICSIA project is a selective group of elite institutions and business schools brought together under a common vision and shared values.

The choice of these institutions resonates with their national and international recognition, their field of expertise as well as their pedagogical approaches and methodologies.

ICSIA lies on core values which we believe are the driving forces behind the setting up of such a hub:


Pluridisciplinarity

Offer different programmes each within a field of expertise.


Commitment

Deliver an engaging service to the community at large.


Innovation

Tap into new opportunities and technologies to improve sustainably.


Bilingualism

Provide the best education in both English and French to reach a larger audience.


Excellence

Bring distinguished education and world-class standard to the many.


Professionalisation

Build academic programmes with a strong connection with industry needs.'

The main objectives behind this ambitious project are to:

  • Provide world-class, yet affordable tertiary education to talented students in Mauritius.
  •  Attract African and Asian students to place higher education as a new economic pillar.
  •  Build and nurture a talented workforce on the local market.
  •  Offer foreign students the right environment and skills to help them contribute to their own country’s economic growth.
  •  Be instrumental in the success of Mauritian Higher Education by leveraging on highly-reputed institutions and hence slow down the brain drain.

A vision for a knowledge hub in Mauritius

The ICSIA project falls under a broader vision of working towards building a knowledge hub geared towards excellence and talent building to meet tomorrow’s challenges. This vision has been thoroughly thought by the Medine Group in 2012 when it launched the Medine Education Village on its 9-hectare campus at Pierrefonds.
