Dauphine Casablanca - ISP strengthens its presence in Morocco with a full-time university program and a new strategic partnership with HEM


Present in Casablanca since September 2016, Université Paris-Dauphine is expanding its reach with a full-time International Master’s in Management program (DGE) opening in September 2019.

The program will focus on Management in the Global South. It is open to Moroccan and international students thanks to Université Paris-Dauphine’s international exchange partnerships.

Since September 2016, Dauphine Casablanca - ISP has offered specialized academic training within the framework of Université Paris-Dauphine’s Executive Master’s and Grand Établissement (DGE) Master’s Degree programs and in particular:

  • Executive Master’s in Participative Finance
  • Executive Master’s in Financial Engineering
  • Master’s – Financial Jurist (DGE)
  • Master’s in Real Estate Management (DGE)

Paris-Dauphine’s Moroccan campus was a joint initiative between the university and the Amis du Maroc, a group of Paris-Dauphine Alumni in Morocco who were actively involved in creating and developing the project.

By extending our offer to include both a full-time study Master’s in Management program and our specialized Executive Education degree programs, we aim to provide students and practicing professionals with academically excellent and pertinent management programs that will prepare them to work in an increasingly globalized world.

To give new impetus to our presence, Université Paris-Dauphine has developed a strategic partnership with HEM, the Institut des Hautes études de Management, that will be our privileged local partner in Casablanca. Université Paris-Dauphine has been working with HEM for over 20 years. This new strategic partnership will make it possible to develop new synergies for teaching, organization and infrastructure.

Yasmine Benamour, PhD in Management Sciences, Université Paris-Dauphine, CEO, member of the Board of HEM, and a Paris-Dauphine alumna, has been appointed CEO of Dauphine Casablanca – Institut Supérieur Privé (ISP).

Najat El Mekkaoui, PhD in Economics and member of the faculty, Université Paris-Dauphine, has been appointed Academic Director (dean) of Dauphine Casablanca – Institut Supérieur Privé (ISP).

Université Paris-Dauphine has had a long-standing commitment to Africa focused on developing an extensive offer of high-level executive education programs tailored to the continent's evolving needs. Extending our presence in Tunisia beginning in 2009 and now in Morocco through our new strategic partnership with HEM, is a step forward in strengthening the university’s ties to Africa.
