TRAVELING AROUND MEXICO

from July 5th to July 30th   2021

The iSummerMX Programs are an innovative academic option designed for international students who love traveling and learning about new cultures. They are four-week long and were created with an itinerant schedule, that is, students will travel to different Tec de Monterrey campuses in different cities. This means that students will learn about different parts of the country without ceasing their studies.

Each Tec de Monterrey campus will organize special activities with field trips, company visits and networking events that will make their experience unforgettable, creating everlasting memories, exercising their intellectual curiosity and developing entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership skills in a multicultural setting.

The programs are based on experiential learning so students will learn also outside the classroom by developing real-life collaborative projects with other students. Students will be embarked on Tec de Monterrey´s TEC21 educational model, an ambitious university-wide program to rethink education allowing flexibility as to how, when and where students learn.

GLOBAL BUSINESS PROGRAM

Students will live in four vibrant cities in Mexico. The Santa Fe district in Mexico City, the colonial city of Queretaro, the industrialized city of Leon and the modern business and industrial center in Monterrey.

The campus has been designed to create the perfect environment, motivating the engagement of intensive academic activity with research as well as recreation, allowing the full innovative and entrepreneurial potential of students and faculty to flourish.

Throughout the year, Leon is host to international events like the Hot Air Balloon Festival and the Rally Race, amazing events that cannot be missed. Nowadays, Leon is also known for being one of the best automotive production clusters in the country and for its nearness to Puerto Interior, one of the best industrial parks in Mexico and Latin America.
