Morocco has launched an inter-ministerial project with the aim of training 22,500 graduates annually in the digital field by 2027, in cooperation between the ministries of digital transition, higher education and the economy. Currently, the country annually trains around 8,000 graduates in the digital sector. This project aims to empower a skilled workforce to meet the growing needs of the labor market in terms of digital skills.
Public universities will play a key role in the implementation of this project by offering new specializations, such as data analytics, big data, cyber security, digital law, artificial intelligence and software development. These areas of specialization will be divided into 144 courses. These courses have been carefully selected to meet the needs of the labor market and the expectations of national and international investors, in order to support Morocco’s digital transition.
This project reflects Morocco’s commitment to developing a highly skilled workforce in the digital sector to drive economic growth and innovation in the country.
