What might have seemed to be just a wild dream in spite of MCB Group’s Chief Executive, Pierre-Guy Noël, hinting towards it during the Africa Forward Together conference (AFT) in Mauritius last September, the MCB Institute of Finance (MCB IF) is now a reality. A joint venture between MCB Group and Uniciti Education Hub, MCB IF was launched this March. MCB IF was born out of the idea of providing adapted courses to the reality of banking and finance professionals in Mauritius and Africa.
We have decided to embark in the MCB IF project to bring together the best of the finance and educational strongholds of Mauritius. MCB, which has extensive experience in banking, finance and consulting, relies on its years of existence to gauge difficulties and needs regarding skills acquisition in those sectors. On the other hand, Uniciti Education Hub is a household name with a strong repute in the education field. This unique positioning makes MCB IF a first-class centre of attraction for financial professionals wishing to broaden the horizons of their knowledge.
An astute mix of both on-line courses and in class ones has been crafted, through a carefully selected network of partners such as the University Paris II Panthéon-Assas, France, the Retail Banking Academy, UK and Emeritus Institute of Management, Singapore.
Another crucial feature behind MCB IF’s inception is to make a telling contribution to the education sector, not just in Mauritius but also on the mainland Africa … Through MCB IF, we firmly intend to reinforce the position of Mauritius as a financial sector of excellence, which can nurture talented professionals, provide new impetus to the local and regional financial landscape, create new job opportunities and boost people’s careers. MCB IF is resolutely positioned as an educational platform with an international reach and all at a very affordable price.
Our will is to reshape tomorrow’s local and regional finance sector, in view of increasing the capabilities of our people. MCB IF can become a full-fledged education hub, with the ability to become the institute of finance for the region and mainland Africa. The stakes are high, the challenge is daunting, but the cause is noble and vital for the present and future of our continent…
