On March 07th, 2023, in Casablanca, the Fondation École Centrale Casablanca, CentraleSupélec Exed and emlyon executive education officially signed off a partnership in order to provide an Executive MBA program in Casablanca for executive managers and directors.

Soon to be open on the campus of the Ecole Centrale in Casablanca, this track connects pedagogical inputs, how to put them into practice in real projects and the professional transformation of the participants.

In addition to the modules of management fundamentals (Strategy, Finance, Company Governance, Marketing, Supply Chain, HR ...), the program tackles the current challenges today's leaders have to address, such as Corporate Social Responsibility, climate issues, or change management. A learning trip in Europe and an individual strategic project round off the program.

For Nassef Hmimda I Director of Executive Education and Director of Innovative Pedagogy at the Fondation École Centrale Casablanca

"Ever since it was created, the Ecole Centrale Casablanca has been dedicated to carrying out the three fundamental missions of a Major School: engineering training via its higher education program, research and continued education, to support skill development for executive managers and directors in Morocco and more broadly, in Africa. The partnership we have just signed with emlyon business school to implement Exed offers in Morocco for Africa, comes as a complement of our training offer for executive managers and directors thus providing a world renown and distinguished training program, which will be supported by 3 major training institutions: emlyon business school, CentraleSupélec and the École Centrale Casablanca.”*

For Céline Précis I Executive Education Director, CentraleSupélec Exed

In the current emergency context, in a societal leadership era in which searching for a positive impact on our societies is increasingly prevalent, managers and directors play a key role. Their ability to federate men and women of organizations around a common vision is crucial to achieve today and tomorrow's transitions successfully. Based on a systemic approach of issues, the Executive MBA allows to acquire the necessary knowledge, competences and behaviors to implement effective and sustainable strategies.”

For Dr. Christine Baldy-Ngayo I Associated Dean Executive Education, emlyon business school

In a world undergoing deep transformations, where anticipating the challenges ahead is essential, the Executive MBA is tailored for leaders wanting to be equipped to address the new issues of the business world, to understand them, to face them in a responsible manner, and stay one step ahead. This is a high-minded program, with a high-quality academic content.”
