Faculty of Governance, Economics and Social Sciences

The Social Sciences, Economics and Humanities Cluster at Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is a teaching and research ecosystem that closely brings together three entities: Faculty of Governance, Economics and Social Sciences (FGSES); offering Bachelor’s, Master’s as well as Ph.D. programs, The Africa Institute for Research in Economics and Social Sciences (AIRESS); geared towards research, The Public Policy School (PPS); offering executive education programs for decision-makers in both public and private sectors. Each of these entities fulfills its own mission; using the knowledge and experience shared among a community of professors, researchers, scholars as well as public decision-makers. All three entities have a common goal. They contribute to the development of the African continent and endow public policies with solid knowledge as well as highly skilled professional profiles that critically address issues facing the continent and the globe. The pursuit of such a goal is driven by the idea of a New South that has intellectually freed itself from frames of thought that restricted its reflection on its own destiny by setting models to follow. Now that the New South can, for itself, critically ponder on the challenges it faces, it is positioned to advance fresher perspectives by tapping into multiple resources readily available in the form of academic knowledge and hands-on experience from its own decision-makers. Such orientation has been developed through a combination of three fields; social sciences, economics, and the Humanities covering, in turn, four disciplines: Political Science, Applied Economics, International Relations, and Behavioral Sciences for Public Policy. These disciplines constitute in themselves the cardinal points that inform teaching as well as research programs within the larger ecosystem. The cluster strives to enhance skills relating to independent thinking as well as critical engagement and collaboration across all segments of the academic community; from students to faculty. It aims to train well-rounded and balanced profiles that value the merit of classical education but at the same time integrate innovative approaches and methods in thinking design. Such profiles can therefore devise models that involve a fair degree of abstract thinking but take full account of the reality of the ground.
