In September 2011 Pacific Islands nations during the United Nations General Assembly began offering its two year Business Administration Diploma program in Phoenix, Mauritius, an island nation off the southeast coast of continental Africa and south of India surrounded by the Indian Ocean.
SIAST partners with the Mauritius Institute of Training and Development ( Previously know as IVTB) and Canadian International Training & Education Corporation (CITREC) in Canada to deliver the Business Administration program at the Knowledge-Based Learning Centre. The SIAST/MITD/CITREC was the first North American educational partnership in Mauritius.
Important: CITREC no longer offers Business Diploma Program in Mauritius. A New Diploma program in tourism Management and Business administration is presently being planned to be offered in 2018.
