Since its foundation, Tecnológico de Monterrey has lived a continuous innovation process to respond to the educational demands that emerge from social, economical, scientific, labor and technological changes.
For seven decades, we have been transforming the lives of thousands of people who are transforming their organizations, development and collaboration settings, communities and the country. At Tecnológico de Monterrey we educate, transform and serve the people who live in an increasingly complex, turbulent and challenging world, who will use technologies that have not yet been invented, solve problems that have not yet been detected and lead companies that have not yet been created.
In order to respond to this challenge, our task is to develop the skills and aptitudes necessary to recover creative and critical thinking in our students, and our commitment is to evolve creating disruptive models, guided by innovation to design the future and transform lives.
Simultaneous to a high level of scientific and technological development our education model seeks to prepare students for life. Through the means of a holistic education that is geared into fulfilling human potential and promoting humanistic formation and citizenship, our educational model pursues the development of social commitment and community responsibility, while offering a vast gamut of experiences in internationalization and co-curricular activities.
This Education Model is founded on the following characteristics that are present in all courses regardless of their level and academic field:
Active Learning: Through the institutional use of several didactic techniques such as Problem Based Learning, Project Oriented Learning, Collaborative Learning, Service Learning, Case Method or Research based Learning among others, students become involved in a planned and programmed manner in the construction of their knowledge. The faculty’s profile stands out because of their development in a professional field alongside an intense training for docent work fostered by the same institution.
Self-regulated Learning: Our students develop abilities that allow them to continue learning throughout their lives. Because of this, throughout their academic course work they will be systematically facing challenging educational situations that require high yielding academic results.
Holistic Development: As actions linked to professional development, Tecnológico de Monterrey integrates a diversity of strategies based on transversal education and co-curricular activities. The objective is to promote within the student body some reflection on the issues within their own social, economic, political and ecological environment. Their perspective must encompass both a social and professional spheres.
Our students develop a strong emphasis on participation in community intervention projects as well as in programs for Entrepreneurial internationalization and cultural development options.
Application of knowledge and innovation to improve competitiveness in business relies on the attendance and organization of congresses as well as in the promotion and organization of cultural and sport activities. This is encouraged strongly in student life.
By promoting participation in this type of activities, students are encouraged to assume a series of values such as cultural appreciation, self-confidence, concern and committed responsibility with health issues as well as communication and leadership abilities.
