ESSEC in Africa

Welcome to the ESSEC Africa Campus

Why Africa?


Today, Africa faces a major challenge: responding to the increasing demand for education across the continent and providing quality, accessible and suitable programs for the 11 to 13 million young people who enter the job market each year.

By establishing a presence in Africa, ESSEC intends to respond to this challenge by training African managers, in Africa, for the African market.

ESSEC Africa embodies the know-how and values of ESSEC, a leading business school, known for its academic excellence and pioneering spirit since its creation in 1907.

In Rabat, ESSEC Africa intends to promote innovation, by deploying cutting-edge teaching methods and solutions to transmit the knowledge of tomorrow to Moroccan and African students. Fully integrated in its environment, ESSEC Africa works with Moroccan and African leaders to address the economic, cultural and social challenges of the continent while also paying particular attention to developing bridges between Africa, Europe and Asia.

ESSEC has a long and beautiful history with Africa and particularly Morocco. The ESSEC alumni community is thus very important on this continent. Additionally, ESSEC Executive Education works closely with leading Moroccan and African institutions.

The establishment of ESSEC in Morocco is part of the school’s multipolar development strategy, which aims to have a presence on each continent and to develop close links with the best academic institutions around the world.

ESSEC’s ambition is to become a business school of reference for Africa in the 21st century. We aim to do so by contributing our academic know-how, by getting involved in the region and in society and by immersing ourselves in its riches in order to nourish our vision of the economy, society and our teaching methods.

The activities deployed by ESSEC Business School in Morocco are thus destined to be developed in Africa, be it through the recruitment of African students, our collaboration with universities or the development of executive education programs.
