How University-Industry Partnerships can Support the Transformation of Organizations: The Case of OCP and Africa Business School
OCP, the largest corporation in Morocco, has supported through its foundation, the creation of the Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique. It relies mainly on the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), as a privileged partner, to carry out its Research & Innovation program. UM6P supports the group in this direction, through its training programs to achieve the objectives of resource conservation, sustainable production, and creation of shared value. The University develops diversified training courses and sets up multidisciplinary research platforms and laboratories, thus giving a boost to the ecosystem of innovation for sustainable development on the continent. And more specifically, ABS is involved at different levels in the strategic transformation of OCP. We believe that this model, unique to the African continent, could be leveraged and replicated in other countries for mutual benefits for the industry, the upskilling of the workforce and the business schools.
