Main Information

ESSEC Business School expanded to the African market, establishing ESSEC Africa, which inaugurated its ESSEC Africa campus in Rabat, Morocco on April 21st, 1997.


Fifteen local employees are based on this campus, under the leadership of the Deputy Dean of ESSEC Africa. During the 2020‐2021 academic year, ESSEC Africa welcomed 224 students to its Global BBA and Master in Management (Grande École) programs, 20 more than in 2019‐2020, demonstrating a steady growth in enrolment since its inauguration.


ESSEC Africa currently welcomes students from the Global BBA and the Master in Management through different formats: specialized “Entrepreneurship in Africa” and “Global Manager in Africa” tracks, and inter-campus mobility tracks.


The Global BBA program has been accredited by the Moroccan Ministry of Higher Education.


ESSEC Africa has also established a strong local network. In addition to partnerships with Centrale’s Casablanca campus, the school has developed ties with:


– The Moroccan National Institute of Statistics and Applied Economics for the implementation of pre‐experience programs and continuing education on the themes of Artificial Intelligence and Management.


– The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) to raise awareness on issues related to migration including welcoming refugees.


– A number of other local and international organisations : UNFM (Union de Femmes du Maroc), GIZ, Institut Confucius, Ecole Mohammedia d’Ingénieurs…


ESSEC Africa has also developed its executive education offering through custom made programs for managers and senior executives, and a catalogue of open enrolment certifying modules.
