Honoris adds Moroccan architectural school to network

Honoris United Universities has acquired École d'Architecture de Casablanca (EAC) in Morocco, another key milestone in the private pan-African higher education network's expansion, following its partnership with EMSI earlier this year.
EAC, which will formally become part of Honoris Morocco, is highly distinguished and the first private school of architecture to be recognized by the State of Morocco in Casablanca. The learning experience at EAC provides graduates the theoretical and practical applications of architecture and of landscaping, leading to intellectual breadth and practical skills required for the professions.

The inclusion of a highly respected specialised school provides a unique offering from the network. Commenting, CEO of Honoris United Universities, Luis Lopez, said, “Architecture is important globally and for Africa, as the continent aims to strengthen its infrastructure and to build smart cities that will improve the human habitat in sustainable and affordable ways. EAC will help Honoris to build a very natural bridge for students to gain the skills needed for the jobs of tomorrow.”

Hassan Filali, CEO of Honoris Morocco said, “This reflects the natural synergies between EAC and Honoris; but most importantly, can provide students with a richer learning environment and wider career opportunities. This includes providing students with compulsory internships, which offer potential for exchanges and the continuation of studies abroad at prestigious schools in Europe. Alongside EMSI and Mundiapolis, Honoris Morocco will continue to promote Education for Impact and I look forward to furthering this foundational belief.”

Mr. Benabeljalil and Mr. Lahbabi, Founders and Directors of EAC stated, “This important development for the school will create new opportunities in terms of teacher exchange programs, student mobility programs and research initiatives. Moreover, the collaboration will start with immediate effect, as we are setting up a partnership with our sister institution, Université Centrale in Tunis. This means that our students will benefit from this collaboration starting November 2018.”
