Tecnológico de Monterrey

About the Tecnológico de Monterrey

The Tecnológico de Monterrey was founded in 1943 thanks to the vision of Eugenio Garza Sada and a group of Mexican entrepreneurs who made their dream of creating a cutting-edge educational institution come true.

It is a private, non-profit institution which is independent from political and religious affiliations.

Here at the Tecnológico de Monterrey we form leaders with entrepreneurial spirit, a humanistic outlook and who are competitive on an international scale.

The Tecnológico de Monterrey is a multi-campus university with 31 campuses located in various parts of the country as well as 19 branches abroad.

Our academic programs cover 10 major areas of study, and we have National Postgraduate Schools and a School of Medicine and Health Sciences that has become the best public health school in Latin America.

The British rating agency, Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), rates the quality of educational institutions in a number of different areas, including internationalization. In 2013, the Tecnológico de Monterrey was awarded a five-star global rating based on its QS Star Rating, which ranks it as a world-class university in areas such as teaching, internationalization, employability, innovation, infrastructure and commitment to the community. There are currently around 40 universities which have a five-star rating, and the Tecnológico de Monterrey is the first university in Mexico to be awarded this certification.
