School of Industrial Management



Resolutely oriented towards the corporate world, the School of Industrial Management strives to train real industrial managers able to respond to the complexities of today’s world.

Throughout the 20th century, national and international training and research systems produced specialized graduates and conducted research programs to solve the essentially technical questions posed to the world of business.

At the beginning of the 21st century, the need has changed with the globalization of markets and the ever-faster evolution of both available technical solutions and organizational systems in companies.

The need for engineers (in the sense of "managers mastering the techniques of their specialization") is now supplemented by a need for "industrial managers" capable of understanding both the global nature of companies and the different components (economic, technological social, environmental) of their function.

For the same reasons, issues of organization and improvement of competitiveness generated in companies create new lines of research, which require a highly collaborative approach between the business world and higher education.

The School of Industrial Management aims to:

• train these profiles of managers, i.e. graduates mastering the basic scientific and technical knowledge and know-how and prepare them to become entrepreneurs of companies in the country and more widely in the African continent.

• develop research programs in the field of industrial management, closely linked to the needs of companies in the country and the African continent.


To meet these challenges, the School of Industrial Management seeks to reconcile the best international models of training and research and bases its development on the following principles:

  • Concrete and practical training
    Applied learning benefits directly from the proximity that the School of Industrial Management develops with the world of both Moroccan and international companies. This translates into industrial and academic internships integrated into schooling (40 weeks minimum) and by the numerous projects carried out in teams.
  • Research programs that meet the needs of businesses:
    Each research subject of the School of Industrial Management benefits from a partnership with a company and seeks to answer one of its problems. The implementation of simulation tools and decision support helps to understand the complexity of the questions asked, and to reproduce the reality of operations.
  • The highest scientific and technical levels :
    The knowledge and mastery of scientific knowledge in various fields and technical tools are based on a strong educational partnership with the Ecole des Mines de Paris (MINES ParisTech) through its teaching staff. The research programs benefit directly from a network of international faculty members affiliated with the School of Industrial Management.
  • A spirit of entrepreneurship and human development :
    On one hand, the various training and research programs prepare the future graduates to apprehend the realities of the constantly changing economic world, widely open to international exchanges. On the other hand, such training prepares them to set about in this changing and multicultural environment.
