The Alumni Association of Ben M’sik English Department (AABED) is a not-for-profit NGO.

AABED is one of the few alumni associations active in Morocco. At the time of its foundation, AABED was the first alumni association for students of Departments of English across Morocco.

The objectives of the association are:

First, the establishment of a network of alumni that could give back to the faculty and help other alumni/students

Our vision is a solid and professional network of alumni, proudly contributing to the development of our country. Our mission is to help our alumni and provide them with insights, guidance, and skills to realize their full potential.

AABED’s objectives can be broken down into the following:

To support and promote cultural, scientific and societal activities for the students and alumni supporting their autonomy and creativity.

Creating channels for networking between the faculty and its alumni.

These objectives are achieved through

conferences, seminars, training and workshops for alumni/students to develop their skills and competencies in many fields;

providing guidance and job offers and opportunities to the alumni to better integrate into the job market;

strengthening students’ and alumni’s contribution to civil society and combating social exclusion;
