The delivery of MBA/MPA programmes has been in the past quite expensive and
restrictive due to the high cost of higher education and the physical limitations of the
traditional mode of delivery.
The Commonwealth of Learning has developed the CEMBA/CEMPA programmes to respond to the need to increase access to such programmes. The Open and distance Learning mode of delivery was identified as the privileged mode of learning to overcome such traditional barriers as time constraints and high cost of studies. COL acted as a facilitator for the development of the programmes by a consortium of partner institutions in the Commonwealth.
A Bachelor’s degree with at least second class from a recognised University or alternative qualifications, including professional qualifications, acceptable to the Open University of Mauritius. Candidates must have a good mastery of English Language. Prior Learning and Prior Experiential Learning may be considered by the University for admission to this programme. Applicants may be asked to pass an entry test.

At the end of the program the learner will:
- Develop a high level of competency in her respective functions (strategic as well as operational)
- Develop her general perspectives to include an international outlook.
