The Hague Summer School in Rabat (july 2018)
Sustainable Entrepreneurship in Morocco
The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) organizes a module of its summer school in Rabat, in cooperation with NIMAR, from 2 until 13 July.
During this English-taught module, students are given a specific business problem and several small business cases that they have to solve in an international, multicultural and multidisciplinary team. They gain in-depth knowledge and practical insights from speakers from THUAS, Dutch embassy in Rabat, Leiden University, entrepreneurs and non-governmental organisations active in Morocco.
Every morning, from Monday to Thursday, inspiring lectures are held that include real-life stories and interactive discussions of business issues. In the afternoon, students work to solve their business cases in workshops. In the evening, students can explore the vibrant city of Rabat, where the module is taught.
During the summer course field visits are organised to local companies. In 2017 students visited Moroccan state company MASEN in Rabat – responsible for large solar projects - and IKEA in Casablanca. The last Friday of the module, a closing event will be organised in which students present their work to each other and relevant stakeholders.
The Hague Summer School is open to anyone who has completed a first-year bachelor’s degree or already has a bachelor’s degree. You should have a good working knowledge of the English language (level B2 or higher) before you apply. One of the most important entry criteria to summer school is your ambition.
