IIHEM ( is a fully accredited institution of higher learning founded in 1988 by a group of US-educated academics with the purpose of providing a US-model college program in Morocco. We were the first institution in Morocco (and I believe in Northwest Africa) to offer a higher education program in the English language. We offer programs in Marketing, Finance, Management, and Management Information Systems.


Since it’s founding, IIHEM has placed a high priority on international academic exchange. Over the years many of our students have gone on to continue their studies overseas. Today, we count well over 100 universities around the world where our students have to pursued their studies. To facilitate international exchange, we have established academic cooperation agreements with universities from four continents: the US, Canada, Australia, China, Sweden, France, South Korea, the Netherlands and Dubai.

We are always looking to strengthen and expand international academic exchange in order to offer our students a maximum of opportunities. Currently, the exchange programs we have in place include:

  • Semester abroad exchanges,
  • Undergraduate articulation programs in a 2+2 and 3+1 format where our students terminate their Bachelor's programs at a partner university.
  • Master's articulation programs where our students are granted Master’s credits for courses taken at IIHEM and then completes their program at a partner institution.
  • A special semester ( designed specifically for visiting international students who wish to immerse themselves in Moroccan culture and language, all while offering them the possibility of attending regular academic courses and receiving credit for all courses.
