Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane - Spotlights


A Global Model U.N.

Members of Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane’s (AUI) Model United Nations (MUN) Club recently participated in two international events.

The first event took place on SciencesPo’s Menton campus from March 23rd to 25th . Over the course of the event, MUN members discussed and debated a wide array of sensitive subjects, ranging from the Sahara, to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, and even ISIS.

The second event, which took place last week, saw our students travel to Beirut, Lebanon, where they met with students of diverse nationalities and backgrounds, and had the chance to develop their public speaking skills while simultaneously broadened their horizons through topical debate.


INKOMPASS—a personalized two-cycle internship program—offers candidates the chance to embark on a journey of self-discovery which provides tailored training programs that build their personal and professional skills. The program will allow you to learn through engaging and challenging business projects, through interacting with the senior leadership team, by sharing your experiences, and developing a two way dialogue in a culture of corporate collaboration and sharing.

The program's goal is to enable you to pursue a fulfilling career by giving you the chance to receive a job offer with Philip Morris International prior to your graduation !

The Inkompass team are on campus from March 26th to April 06th. Be ready !!
