The international partnerships that the university holds with other academic centres around the world also offer our students real opportunities for international mobility.

The President of the University of Mundiapolis, Dr. Amine Bensaïd, said: “We are extremely proud of those who have graduated from the class of 2018, who we are sure will go on to contribute to Morocco’s future economic growth and that of the wider continent. Since Mundiapolis was formed, we have focused on developing a pedagogical model based on cultural agility, collaborative intelligence and mobility so that our students are equipped to compete in a jobs market in a rapidly changing global economy. In 2017, we co-founded the Honoris United Universities network, the first pan-African private higher education network and our affiliation of it reflects our commitment to becoming a major pan-African actor of reference and our ambition to contribute to the training of young Moroccan and African leaders of tomorrow. ”

The CEO of Honoris in Morocco, Hassan Filali, commented that, “Our strategy is to train a new generation of African leaders and professionals who can impact their societies and economies. The link between the University and its graduated students doesn’t stop at their degree. To keep this connection, our network invests in campuses in the city centre that are open to potential students from across the continent, providing places of interaction with the business world and civil society.”

91% of students graduating from Mundiapolis found a job within the 12 months following their graduation. “The high employability rate of our graduated students can be explained by our academic model and our proximity to our partner companies, which are integrated into our learning processes. In addition, the affiliation of Mundiapolis to Honoris network gives our students access to a differentiated and multicultural academic offer, as well as exchanges with other member institutions. Our graduated students are empowered to meet the needs and expectations of employers,” concluded Dr. Amine Bensaid.
