Faculty of Law & Management - Dean's Message
The Faculty of Law and Management (FLM) welcomes you and above all congratulates you on obtaining a much sought-after seat on one of the several programmes offered by FLM. I am sure you feel somewhat edgy since you are about to embark on a new journey and embrace University education. Please rest assured that you are definitely not alone.
Today marks the commencement of our journey together, a three-year long journey. It will not be an easy journey, neither for you nor for me, but since I know I can count on your support and since you can count on mine and that of all staff of FLM, we can together steer the FLM ship to our mutually availing destination where your success is also our success! And if you have any doubts as to your ability to climb this mountain, cast that thought out the window immediately. Trip, stumble or fall you may, but true strength and unflinching will and determination shine through when you learn from your mistakes and â€˜get upâ€™ with renewed passion and drive to finish that journey and earn your degree.
Whether you may have chosen a law, management or finance degree programme, you shall learn an array of principles and skills which cut across several key disciplines, all of which are included, some to a greater and others to a lesser extent, in all programmes offered by the departments of management, law and finance and accounting respectively headed by Mrs Oogarah-Hanuman, Mr Narsinghen and Mr Lamport. These include management skills, quantitative skills, communication skills, legal skills and finance skills. If we are to succeed in this ever changing world, the more versatile we are, the more employable we shall become. And at FLM, we are proud of the links nurtured with industry and given that most undergraduate programmes require compulsory industry placements, our students have a privileged insight into the world of work and the additional set of soft skills, namely, discipline, self-learning, professionalism and team work necessary in sustaining a personâ€™s career path. Enjoy your studies and let us agree to meet up again formally in three yearsâ€™ time to celebrate your graduation. Thank you for your kind attention.

Department of Management
As Head of the Department of Management, I wish all new students a very warm welcome. With a team of 18 dedicated full-time academics supported by a large pool of expert and experienced professionals from industry, we are pleased to offer a wide range of carefully developed courses, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level to prepare your journey towards the world of work and professional practice. We strive to provide you a learning environment that is conducive to your personal and intellectual development.
Wishing you the very best in your studies.
Mrs Vanisha Oogarah-Hanuman
Head of Department
Department of Law
The Department of Law welcomes you on board for this exciting academic programme. You will have the unique advantage of studying Mauritian Law with a lot of comparative perspectives from English, French, Indian, American Law etc. and very often through a bilingual medium, which will give a competitive edge on the labour market. You will also have the advantage to study a lot of innovative subjects, which are in tune with our â€˜services economyâ€™.
Mr Hambyrajen Narsinghen
Head of Department
Department of Finance & Accounting
The department of finance and accounting welcomes you and above all congratulates you on obtaining a seat on one of the 7 undergraduate programmes of the faculty of law and management. To succeed in this global market often characterised by fierce competition not only amongst companies but also in the job market, one needs to be versatile. And to meet the dynamic needs of both our students and employers, the department spares no effort in developing a teaching environment and nurturing a buoyant research culture which not only imparts technical knowledge spanning management, accounting, finance, legal and law fields but also critical thinking and communication skills which we believe are instrumental in sustaining the employability of our accounting and finance graduates. We must remember that Employers are quasi-shareholders of tertiary education institutions and harnessing long-lasting links with industry and conducting collaborative research with industry is central to the mission of the department. Our proximity with industry together with the relevance of our programmes is evidenced by the heavy student demand for accounting and finance programmes and the significant number of exemptions which our accredited accounting programmes enjoy with ACCA and ICAEW. Enjoy your studies dear students and let us agree to meet up again formally in three years' time to celebrate your graduation.
Mr Matthew John Lamport
Head of Department
