Faculty of Law & Management - Dean's Message

The Faculty of Law and Management (FLM) welcomes you to our faculty as you are privileged for having been able to secure a seat on one of the several programmes offered by the three departments of the Faculty.

After attending secondary school, you will now embark on a new journey for a period of three years where you shall enjoy our lectures as well as the campus life.  Your respective Programme Coordinators will listen to your grievances and will give support as much as they can to remove any obstacle on your way.  Each of the three Heads of Department (Miss Valerie Uppiah from the Law Department, Dr Viraiyen Teeroovengadum from the Department of Management, and Mr Mootooganagen Ramen from the Department of Finance and Accounting) and myself, as Dean of the Faculty of Law & Management will provide administrative support to guide, help and assist you to achieve success so that, at the end of the journey, you are proud of yourself.

There will be practitioners from outside the university to bridge the gap between theory and practice.  The Faculty of Law and Management intentionally brings in judges, barristers, attorneys, notaries, managers as well as accountants to cope with the practical side of the various modules taught on campus.  The Faculty also organises regular workshops, conferences, webinars or seminars; research, innovation and student week, amongst others, which reckon the participation of trade unionists, ministers or delegates from abroad who are invited to make the right speech at the right place and at the right time to nurture that strong link with the industry.  So, you are invited to attend all these events as well as perform well in your studies, maintain discipline, self-learning, professionalism, interaction or team work.  On the overall, it would definitely support you in sustaining a meaningful career path.

Where feasible, you will also have administrative support from the Registry and the Examination Section.  Therefore, do not hesitate to contact them through your Class Representative so that our team may expedite matters diligently.  As from today, you will have to face new responsibilities, new modules, new friends and new people around you on campus, to meet with the new challenges of university education, knowledge management or all necessary skills in order for you to secure a job and to face real life issues which you will encounter throughout your career one day in a friendly and sane socio-educational environment.

So, allow me to wish you to enjoy your studies among us.  Let us meet again in three years’ time to celebrate your graduation together with your parents and relatives.  We wish you the very best on this journey of yours.

Dear Students,

Warmest welcome on behalf of the Department of Management (DMGT).

DMGT is one of the three departments attached to the Faculty of Law and Management (FLM) at the University of Mauritius (UoM). The Department has been contributing substantially to the creation and dissemination of knowledge in the field of Management for more than two decades. Accordingly, we have been playing an active role in the economical and societal development of Mauritius and the region. In the current era termed as the fourth industrial revolution, where the internal and external environment or organisations are evolving in complexity, it is essential to equip existing and future business administrators and leaders with the necessary skills and knowledge to maximise efficiency and effectiveness at micro, meso and macro levels. In that respect, the DMGT has a crucial role to play.

Currently we have a strong pool of 21 qualified full-time academics and a competent pool of part-time lecturers, who specialise in diverse areas of management such as marketing, operations, human resources, business analytics, entrepreneurship, strategy, ethics and international business. Please see our DMGT Academic Staff Profile for more information about our valued academics. Our students and alumni remain our most prized asset. We aspire to prepare our students for a good life, while ensuring that they have strong technical abilities.   

We disseminate knowledge mainly through our undergraduate and postgraduate academic programmes. Undeniably our MBAs remain one of our flagship programmes, considered to be of high value to business administrators from various fields who aim to improve their managerial competencies. As part of the UoM mandate, we also offer several undergraduate programmes. Beside our general BSc (Hons) Management programme, we offer several specialised programmes in the areas of international business, marketing, human resources, finance, tourism, entrepreneurship and business informatics.

In line with a key role of the University of Mauritius which is to act as an engine of growth for the country by putting knowledge at the service of the nation (Scientia Salus Patriae), at the DMGT we are also actively engaged in the production of knowledge. Our research works aim to contribute to both to management theory and practice. The findings of our research are disseminated in the form of publications in internationally recognised peer-reviewed journals, books and executive reports for policy makers among others. We also have a vibrant group of doctorate scholars working in diverse areas of management research such as tourism and hospitality, online marketing and quality management.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with us!
