    The geographical location of this city makes this city a central place to be a major participant in the country's overall economic and financial portfolio.

Not only this but there is so many other things to do and places to visit while having a family trip or a business tour to this attraction of Morocco.

That is quite difficult in small cities or countrysides, where there are not as many many big companies and groups. Hence, many graduate students choose big cities to live and work.
