Université Paris-Dauphine opens a Casablanca Campus

18.11.2016

On October 18th 2016, Université Paris-Dauphine inaugurated a continuing education campus in Casablanca.

On October 18th 2016, following on Tunis, London and Madrid, Université Paris-Dauphine inaugurated its Casablanca campus devoted to executive education. The Casablanca campus participates in the university's long-term commitment to Africa. Paris-Dauphine has a deep-rooted relationship with the continent, and in particular with Morocco, where it has long-established joint academic programs and a significant group of Dauphine Alumni.

Dauphine believes that Africa will play an increasingly significant geopolitical role and that higher education is key to its future development. Although expectations in Africa are high, local options for pursuing a top-level university education are currently insufficient. Paris-Dauphine would like the Casablanca campus to serve as a regional and sub-Saharan hub of educational excellence.

Casablanca offers a curriculum tailored to the continuing education needs of practicing professionals, with 7 programs adapted to the Moroccan context:

  1. Islamic Finance: Practices and Principals
  2. Real Estate Management
  3. Health Care Management
  4. Business Information Systems – Audit and Business Advisory
  5. Financial Jurist
  6. Private Banking and Wealth Management
  7. Financial Engineering

The Casablanca campus benefits from all of Dauphine's expertise and academic excellence in the area of executive education as well as the university's unique research-based approach to teaching. Members of the Dauphine faculty, recognized for their research and experts in their fields, coordinate the Casablanca program and teach a majority of the courses. Their teaching will be supplemented with the participation of local business leaders, managers and consultants who will share their experience with program participants.
