A Medine Group project

With over a century’s history, the Medine Group has successfully transformed from an essentially sugar-based operation into a diversified group, structured around the core business areas of Agriculture, Leisure, Property Development and Education.

Uniciti, the Medine Group’s Smart City has positioned Higher Education as the centrepiece of its strategy, which is in line with both the Group’s Master Plan and the Government’s ambition to position Mauritius as a knowledge hub.
