For several years, the Casablanca Stock Exchange has been committed to developing financial and stock market education for various targets through its “Stock Exchange School”.
Today, the Casablanca Stock Exchange is more involved in promoting financial education through the implementation of financial certifications, thanks to the partnership with the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI). Certifying courses are short courses and give rise to the issue of certification. Thus, as a first step, this program will be dedicated to students before being expanded, especially to professionals in the financial sector in Morocco who wish to obtain international certifications.
In concrete terms, the first certification launched concerns the principles and fundamentals of financial services and will be delivered in English and French through access to CISI’s online platform. During this event, the Casablanca Stock Exchange has also signed partnerships with 6 public and private institutions of higher education to provide beneficiaries with certification, rooms accredited by CISI for the conduct of exams . These establishments are: ENCG Agadir, ENCG Tangier, INSEA Rabat, Al Akhawayn University of Ifrane, the International University of Casablanca and the International University of Rabat.
About this event, Karim Hajji, General Manager of the Casablanca Stock Exchange, underlined: “We wish through these new certifications, to develop the knowledge and the technicality of the financial center of Casablanca. We are happy to partner with a recognized international organization, CISI, which will enable us to offer a service that best meets this objective. We are also pleased that higher education institutions continue to trust us by supporting this initiative.”
For his part, Simon Culhane, CEO of CISI said: “We are delighted to be associated with the Casablanca Stock Exchange. Casablanca’s growing influence as a financial center has been noted in the latest Global Financial Centers Index”.
