Continuing its efforts to improve literacy rates and match curricula with employers’ needs, Morocco has been increasing its investment in education. Rural enrolment levels are steadily rising, climbing from 49.7% in 2007/08 to 56% in 2010/11. Economic growth is bringing opportunities for increased participation of the private education sector, while international cooperation with new universities and research institutes is opening the door to a more globalised higher education system, positioning the country as a regional centre for tertiary provision. An increased focus on research capabilities is expected to enhance Morocco’s education capabilities and help to build a closer link between the education system and the companies working in emerging priority sectors such as aeronautics and renewable energies. This chapters contains an interview with Thami Ghorfi, President, ESCA Ecole de Management.
