Comprehensive MoU with ESCP Europe
Honoris United Universities, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ESCP Europe to further its transnational network of leading academic centres of excellence and to support ESCP Europe’s mission to participate in the future training of African leaders.
The MoU provides both Parties with opportunities to fortify their academic and global reach by providing significant options for students to gain wide geographical exposure and shared intelligence. This will include scholarships and financial aid by Honoris member institutions to endorse students admitted in ESCP Europe programs such as MIM, MSc, MBA and executive education programs.
The MoU also enables Honoris students to gain access to ESCP Europe’s Blue Factory incubator hub in Paris; which acts as a catalyst for start-ups, provides tailor-made support programs, and emphasizes accelerated growth among a mixed community of entrepreneurs and innovators.
This agreement is distinctive as it combines two innovative visions of higher education: pan-European (ESCP Europe) and pan-African (Honoris United Universities), allowing for widespread sharing of ideas, experience and cultures.
In addition to signing a network-wide MoU with Honoris, ESCP Europe has also signed MoU’s with three specific Honoris network institutions in the Maghreb region, the Université Centrale in Tunisia, Université Mundiapolis and EMSI (Ecole Marocaine des Sciences de l’Ingénieur), both in Morocco.
