Dean and General Director of Groupe ISCAE
Dans le cadre de son implication et son engagement dans la réflexion relative au développement en Afrique et en amont de la 5ème édition des Doctoriales du Centre des Etudes Doctorales (CEDOC) du Groupe ISCAE, organisée sous le thème : « Le Management en Afrique : entre Universalité et Spécificités », Madame Nada BIAZ, Directrice Générale du Groupe ISCAE, contribue aux travaux de AABS (Association of African Business School) Connect Conference, qui aura lieu du 14 au 16 mai 2017 au Caire, par une communication dont voici l’extrait :
“The growing needs in Africa in terms of economic and social development are one of the main challenges that our nations are facing on a regular basis. Likewise, meeting the predicaments requires a new level of understanding, and education in this regard is considered as a consistent impetus.
For many decades, this fact was highlighted and not further detailed. Our continent has suffered from misconception and de facto the business model has failed to absorb shocks and systemic instabilities. Nowadays, Africa is rebuilding itself continuously, emerging and offering a wide range of opportunities. This situation is a catalyst for innovation, allowing multiple exchanges, and eroding boundaries.
In this context, Groupe ISCAE is devoted to defend our African identity and contribute to prosperity, by implementing a new growth path.
As our culture becomes more international, Groupe ISCAE has built its footprint chiefly around diversity, responsibility, and inclusion. These values are second to none and at an early-stage, we were aware of the complexity behind and we are committed to be among World-Class Business Schools community. Consequently, our strategy is not a climb on the bandwagon; it is an engagement and will ensure a safe transition to switch the actual frame.
While the premise of change is identified, the AABS Connect Conference 2017 entitled ‘’African Business Schools: Advocates for Better Business’’ will be a remarkable event to think together for a better future and listing priorities.
ISCAE at a glance
In 1971, Groupe ISCAE was established under the initiative of His Majesty, Hassan Second, King of Morocco, aiming to provide the national economy with top managers and policy makers. Meanwhile, the quality of education has fostered the transition scope toward assurance of learning in order to arise as emergent power.
Since then, the history length of Groupe ISCAE has been marked by periods of ongoing transformation and having a concrete impact on growth and social dynamics. From inception, Groupe ISCAE has been a leading institution and based on its national identity legitimacy is looking forward to contribute continuously to improve the human element.
There is a number of facts showing that the majority of Moroccan organizations – in private or public sectors – is led by an ISCAE alumni. So far, this situation anchors the accomplished mission of the Groupe and tells a success story that the school has written proudly.
This institutional responsibility is considered as a lever for the Groupe in order to shape the path of our country. This status guarantees the exchange of experiences globally and erases the limits of self-comparison.
New challenges are yet to come; Groupe ISCAE should prove once again its ability to be the core of change. The selectivity, excellence of programs, impactful intellectual contributions, and ethics of the institution are key factors to build up the business environment on robust pillars.”
