Student life at The Executive is enriching. This is partly because of its diverse student population consisting of people from different countries. Such an environment creates opportunities for people from different backgrounds to share their experiences, knowledge, and skills. Students benefit in countless ways from such opportunities, as they develop a more open and global attitude, which is definitely advantageous for their career at international level.

Shops, food courts, recreational facilities and the bus stops are but a short walk away.

ENJOY LIVING IN MAURITIUS

Mauritius, also known as 'paradise on earth' has so much more to offer than simply its white sandy beaches, near-perfect climate, lively and warm people, great food and peaceful environment. It also features among the top 20 twenty economies on the overall ease of doing business out of the 185 economies rated by the International Finance Corporation and the World Bank. Along with this excellent performance, Mauritius is equally ranked 8th as world's freest economies and it continues to be a global leader in economic freedom. In parallel, for the 6th consecutive year, the Ibrahim Index of African Governance ranked Mauritius 1st for democracy, economic and political freedom.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons why, living in Mauritius is considered to be a blessing.

As a student in Mauritius, you will enjoy the cultural diversity (68 percent Indo-Mauritians, 27 percent creole, three percent Sino-Mauritians and two percent Franco-Mauritians) and have the opportunity to learn from the multiplicity of spoken languages (French, English, Creole, Hindi, Mandarin, etc.)

Every year, you can experience from the dragon and firecrackers of the Chinese New Year's festival to the luminous festival of lights of Divali, or the Cavadee celebration and beautifully wrap up the year with a merry Christmas.

The multi-cultural society allows you to enjoy a great diversity of food, from Indian cuisine to Chinese and local menus. Students can also enjoy well known fast food restaurant chains such as Kentucky, Mc. Donalds, Pizza Hut, etc.

Living and studying in Mauritius inevitably brings new avenues and many activities are organised among friends.

Activities

For its first participation at the Inter-Tertiary Educational Institutions Sports Competition - UNIVERSIADE 2013 - The Executive made its mark in football and athletic games. Our students experienced hope, surprise, and the joy of being together to support their institution.

Over 2000 students in post-secondary education participated in the games, in numerous disciplines such as athletics, rugby, football, basketball, volleyball, badminton and cricket.

The football team of The Executive forged their way to a memorable football campaign at the Universiade 2013. For its first participation, The Executive reached the quarter finals and maintained a winning record for 3 football matches. Moreover, one of our students, Jumnoodoo Keshwar won the bronze medal for 800 m race.

"It was a group of energetic and confident students. I'm very proud of them," Dan Hurkoo said. "They are special to me, and I am happy of the first performance of The Executive. Participating in sports is not only about medals, but about how our students benefitted in terms of greater personal confidence and self-esteem; greater connections with their institution and stronger peer relationships."
