Tecnológico de Monterrey is a private university system founded in 1943 in Monterrey, México. It is a comprehensive university offering PhD, master, undergraduate, and high-school programs in Engineering, Management, Social, Arts and Human Sciences, and Medicine.
It holds 31 campuses located across 25 cities in the country, and 22 liaison offices in 15 countries. In each campus there are modern and innovative facilities, creating a balance between studying and recreation.
Its academic programs are accredited by international accreditation agencies such as SACS - Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, CACEI - Council for Accreditation of Engineering Education, ABET - Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, CACECA - Accreditation Council on the Teaching of Accounting and Administration, AACSB, AMBA, EQUIS, among others. Academic programs are also accredited in Mexico by National Council for Science and Technology CONACYT.
The prestige enjoyed by Tecnológico de Monterrey since its foundation, stemming from the culture of entrepreneurship, work, efficiency and responsibility that it fosters its students, motivated its graduates, who come from diverse regions of Mexico, to promote the presence of Tecnológico de Monterrey in their hometowns. This gave the Institution significant insight into the diverse regional needs, enabling it to prepare professionals who can resolve them, without uprooting them from their hometowns. Moreover, as a nationwide institution, Tecnológico de Monterrey accepts its responsibility to provide a valid response to the country’s foremost challenges.
94% of our graduates are employed with 12 months of graduations and some of Tecnológico de Monterrey’s alumni are now directors in successful companies in Mexico and Latin America, while the presence of its graduates in key government and public administration positions is constantly growing.
At Tecnológico de Monterrey we combine two research approaches with open international collaboration: “knowledge driven creation” and “society driven innovation”. Our researchers have a responsibility towards value creation based on our scientific research that addresses society´s demands.
But they also have to advance scientific knowledge to create new concepts, theories, and paradigms to advance the understanding of the world and the universe. We are committed to undertaking research to educate, innovate and transform in order to transcend in this lifetime. Tecnológico de Monterrey has decided to focus this scientific activity on eight main strategic research areas, encouraging innovation, knowledge generation and knowledge transfer, with the goal of trying to solve México’s and worldwide problems. These eight strategic areas include: biotechnology and food; mechatronics and engineering; information technology, sustainability; public policy; business; medicine; and education, the humanities and the social sciences.
Tecnológico de Monterrey´s research program is based on its flagship campus at Monterrey and operates through six schools constituted by research professors from the research campuses (Tecnológico de Monterrey at Monterrey). The schools are: Business School, School of Social Science and Government, School of Medicine, School of Engineering and Sciences, and the School of Humanities and Education, School of Architecture, Art and Design.
The relevant characteristics that distinguish Tecnológico de Monterrey are:
TEC21 educational model is an innovative educational model that adapts to the world we live in and the specific characteristics of digital natives: young people in the 21st Century. It is based on four major pillars:
Students’ academic preparation is broadened with internationalization experiences that enrich their academic life by offering a more global insight.
The internationalization component helps students to enrich their academic life with more global experiences, through academic, cultural and linguistic exchange, and also to take a major step towards achieving personal maturity.
Students at Tecnológico de Monterrey represent more than 70 nationalities.
Tecnológico de Monterrey, in its endeavour to promote the development and comprehensive education of its students, offers diverse programs, courses, workshops and student groups that provide spaces for the development of competencies, such as leadership, self-confidence, ethics and citizenship.
These competencies help students to fulfil their personal and professional goals.
The formal student life actions include sports, cultural and student leadership activities, together with prevention and psycho-pedagogic counselling, which are offered through the healthy environment promotion program.
At Tecnológico de Monterrey, we have made the decision to transform society through education. To achieve this, we have become an institution with the best faculty, students and collaborators. We believe in the enormous value of diversity in our work teams, which leads to a variety of ways of thinking.
Through diversity and inclusion, we can drive innovation in ideas and research, as well as in products and services accessible to all people. This is the only way we can become true agents of change.
