Casablanca, Morocco — The Kingdom of Morocco has recently reached an important reform in higher education by conferring the State recognition to very few private institutions in highly regulated domains (Architecture, Health & Medicine, Engineering and Management). This institution’s level qualification was launched in 2015 in order to acknowledge the academic excellence and intellectual contribution of independent schools and universities. It comes in addition to the programs’ accreditation process initiated in 2012.
ESCA Ecole de Management is one of the 8 prestigious institutions that got this recognition in early April. A first in Morocco!
ESCA was first awarded by the State Accreditation in 2012 for all its programs after achieving successfully the Accreditation process.
The State recognition reflects the compliance of the pedagogical model of the school with the highest national standards. It also opens new horizons in the job market to its graduates by giving them the right to work as civil servant or to joing State owned companies.
This disctinction from the Ministry of Higher Education strengthens the position of ESCA Ecole de Management in Morocco and Africa as the 1st Business School in French speaking countries in Africa and Morocco by various international rankings1.
On one hand, it confirms the reputation that the school has been enjoying among students, employers and alumni. On the other hand, it reinforces its national and regional leadership based on the academic excellence and the relevance of its scientific production.
