Professor Stephen M. Mutula

As co-hosts of the Global Trends in Management, IT and Governance in an e-World (e-MIG 2019) International Conference to take place in the volcanic island of lagoons and palm-fringed beaches, Mauritius on May 14-15, the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) and the Open University of Mauritius (OU) in partnership with University of Mauritius, Mauritius; Amity Institute of Higher Education, Mauritius; University of Huddersfield, UK; Lyallpur Khalsa College of Engineering, India; Shivalik College of Engineering, India; Quantum University, India; we are excited to welcome all conference participants to this exceptional event.

In a world that is being taken over by technology it is important for conferences like e-MIG to take place to better equip ourselves on how to support a growing digital economy. This multidisciplinary conference not only serves as a platform for the development of leadership, capacity, and scholarship in the African region but also aims to bring together academics, postgraduate students, researchers, IT practitioners, industry delegates and Ministry officials from all over the globe and from a range of disciplines to showcase global trends in an e-World and share their expertise and experiences on IT, Governance and Management matters.

As Mauritius is widely known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and water sports, we encourage you to take advantage of its tropical climate and leisure activities during and after the conference to experience the beauty of the Island.

On behalf of the Organising Team, we hope that you will enjoy the special networking opportunities that this conference and venue offer, and that the beautiful island of Mauritius becomes one of your special academic memories.
