Al Akhawayn University (AUI) was founded in 1995 as a private university by King Hassan II of Morocco with contributing financial support from King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. It is the first and only English language university in Morocco developed on the model of US higher education. Montana State University has had a partnership with AUI since its founding, and this unique and wonderful CCIS program offers one of the few opportunities U.S. students have to study in North Africa.
AUI is grounded in African, Arab, and Islamic culture and models its organizational structure, curriculum, language, and teaching methods on the American system of higher education.
