What is Business Management?


Business management is one of the popular choices of study not just globally, but in Mauritius as well, with an array of specialist pathways. Often, we hear about it being overrated, but if we look around us, businesses and small enterprises have been at the centre of our societies. This blog talks about the versatility of business management courses and giving you reasons why you should study one.

Broadly, business management has to do with planning, organising, directing and controlling the resources of the company efficiently to meet the needs of customers at a profit. By pursuing a business management degree, you are able to understand the different areas pertaining to operations, marketing, finance, procurement, people management amongst others. However, business management is much more than that in the 21st century. One must learn about the multiple skills such as:

  • Critical and strategic thinking
  • Effective communication
  • Problem-solving
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Innovation
  • Leadership
  • Project management
  • Decision-making

Nonetheless, acquiring these skills will not be enough, you need to work on honing them and pay attention to how they can impact your job performance and employability opportunities.


A degree in business management is relevant just about anywhere. The skills are transferrable, which means that they will be useful across many different industries, giving you flexibility to shift to a different industry or role. Since products and services are exchanged in every corner of the country and worldwide, you can take your business skills anywhere and everywhere you want. Whether you want to pursue your dream of becoming an entrepreneur or want to work in a big corporation, the exciting part of moving into the realm of business management is, after all, its dynamism and ability to drive innovation.
