I am almost graduated with my degree and I would like to share some points about my experience as a student here in Mexico.
I really enjoyed being part of the ITESM, as a student, I had the opportunity to be a storyteller and thanks to that I could manage the social media of my campus, and make a very good network with many people in different cities and countries.
My experience in my courses was great in almost all of them, I could meet good colleagues, make friends, and interact freely with the professors of my different courses.
Also, I made some projects with real companies like Spotify, Menchie´s or BRP, where a developed my soft and technical skills to be prepared for my professional life.
In general, I had many lessons as a student that made me a mature person and I believe this will help me to be a good candidate for any company.

What I liked the most about studying there was the quality education and the sense of belonging students can get. It’s a university that not only teaches students in a theoretical way but also in a practical way. Tec also provides the best infrastructure, many programs and opportunities to study or work abroad as it has partnerships with universities all over the world. In my personal experience, it helped me develop lots of skills through all the different student activities and opportunities that it offers. In all my years studying there, the only thing I didn’t like was the new system of teaching called Tec21.View more

The University of your Dreams? That is the TEC of Monterrey, I made an exchange in Monterrey and I was amazed by this Private University located in Monterrey Mexico. The structure of the campus, enormous we had free bicycles to move around the campus, gym and free sports classes for students, a huge library, computers, classes were very dynamic super friendly teachers with a super practical learning in all subjects , in turn, the campus was perfectly taken care of each and every one of the details of the gardens, the animals that lived there from the campus, the lagoons, etc … Campus access and security controls were sometimes strict but favored campus security
And what I liked the most was the multiple training events that were organized within the campus, training talks, symposia, parties, seed companies, student promotion campaign etc … always the campus had some activity or event to do. I loved this University, my favorite without a doubt.
I earned my degree of B. Sc in Computer Science (ISC) and M. BA IT Management (MATI) at Campus Estado de Mexico. Studying at this university was one of the most rewarding experiences in my life – it provided me with all the tools I needed to have a successful professional career in my industry. The education quality and its facilities are the first worlds and I have witnessed in my international professional life that ITESM graduates compete very well with other from renowned international universities. ITESM offers a wide possibility of options especially if you are interested in entrepreneurship and international experience in your field. It is not surprising to me that this university has been awarded multiple times as the best private university in Latin America.View more
The TEC has great facilities, tons of extracurricular activities and highly prepared professors, all in an environment that invites you to explore your full potential. However, the TEC will not automatically make you a great professional, as you will have to study hard and stay long hours at the library or working with your classmates on one of the several team assignments that you will continuously be given. The TEC prepares its students to work in a stressful environment by assigning them loads of homework, team projects and exams every three to four weeks. If you manage to do this and still have time for student associations, sport teams and to take one or more of the multiple cultural and sports classes, you will find yourself continuously running from one place to another while at the same time thoroughly enjoying your university experience.View more
I studied high school and International Relations in ITESM-CEM and one of the best things I learn that we have to be citizens who make a real change in society, citizens with the best way to do things. We have a pack of great and prepared teachers (National & International). Also, all the extra-curricular activities the Campus offers: theater, dance, gyms, representative team sports and so many much. You also have the opportunity to study abroad and interact with different cultures. In my time we didn´t have as a accreditation and extra language (I took classes in English), and other schools offered French, German and so. I highly recommend the school for all the University for All the Benefits they offer.View more
