GBSB Global Business School is excited to announce it signed a memorandum of understanding and agreement with IIHEM – the leading private University in Morocco. Under this formal agreement, GBSB Global and IIHEM students can participate in a foreign exchange program at both universities, bilaterally. IIHEM students will be given a special condition to continue their studies at GBSB Global. In particular, BBA students at IIHEM are invited to join GBSB Global for a third top-up year and finish their BBA studies at GBSB Global Business School.
IIHEM is an upstanding institution in Morocco. It is their pleasure to inform GBSB Global students that IIHEM has achieved a new level of quality recognition from the Moroccan Ministry of Higher Education (MMHE). The MMHE private higher education standards have evolved over the years, setting different levels of degree that institutions can achieve. Initially, in the 1980's when the Moroccan government first drafted and passed legislation to allow for private higher education in the country, institutions were "authorized to operate" under basic quality control standards. IIHEM opened its doors in 1988 under those standards. In 2010, MMHE developed new accreditation standards that were complied only by the best institutions. IIHEM’s academic programs were accredited in 2011. Finally, at the end of 2014, the Ministry set new standards for institutions so that their diplomas could be "recognized as being equivalent" to those delivered by the public universities nationally, thus enjoying the same rights and privileges.
In August 2018, after a long evaluation process, IIHEM joined a select body of private business schools which have achieved the "equivalence recognition" status. This esteemed recognition means that each student diploma awarded by IIHEM will be accompanied by a government document showing its equivalence to one of the national public diplomas, "Licence" for BAC+3 and "Master" for BAC+5.
IIHEM is very proud of this new recognition status. This accolade is representative of the outcome of over 30 years of diligent effort and dedication to the highest quality of academia by their faculty and staff. It is a milestone that encourages them to work even harder to develop the caliber of their school and to work diligently with their international partners on new innovative and integrative education collaboration initiatives.
GBSB Global Business School is delighted to be collaborating with such a distinguished institution. It is with our great hopes that our students will take this great opportunity to further expand their horizons and experience, and we welcome with open arms students from IIHEM. Our student body is enriched by further diversification and commitment to excellence in learning.
