New partnership agreement between the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Euromed University of Fez

Agreements and partnerships

Pr. Mostapha Bousmina, President of the Euromed University of Fez (UEMF), and Dr. Enrique Luis Graue Wiechers, Rector of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) have signed a partnership agreement with the aim of strengthening the links between the two universities in the fields of training, research & innovation, transfer of knowledge, and student mobility. Both partners are indeed convinced of the importance of crossing competences and promoting the rapprochement of cultures to prepare future executives imbued with the values of openness and inclusion and aware of their duties, their rights and their role in society.

With a rich history that dates back to 1551, the year of the first foundation of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the latter today brings together more than 360,000 students from all over the world and ranks first among the universities of Spain, Portugal and Latin America. The UNAM has also trained influential figures in the world of politics, literature and philosophy, science, engineering and Nobel Prize winners.  In addition to teaching, the UNAM is actively involved in cultural projects and has its own science museum, university museum of contemporary art, Olympic stadium, botanical garden, concert hall and a very active university city that has received the UNESCO World Heritage Award for its humanistic and artistic contributions.

By partnering with UEMF, which also works to strengthen the multicultural dimension, sharing and inclusion, research and innovation through concrete actions such as learning by doing, project-based teaching and flipped courses, the National Autonomous University of Mexico intends to collaborate in the development of the autonomy and fulfillment of the entire student community. This meeting was also an opportunity for fruitful exchange between the representatives of the UNAM and the members of the UEMF community. Imminent mobility opportunities for graduate students were discussed during the question and answer session.
