Dear International Student:
It gives us great pleasure that you have considered the Universidad de Monterrey as your option for study, either as an exchange student or as a regular student pursuing a professional degree.
At the UDEM you will encounter a dynamic university atmosphere to stimulate your intellectual development. We strive to achieve academic excellence and the formation of leaders endowed with self-confidence, a critical and analytical spirit, social consciousness, high ethical standards, intercultural sensibility, and global competence, all of which contribute significantly to worldwide peace and well-being.
Our aim to achieve excellence in the areas of teaching, investigation, service, and community extension was confirmed by our accreditation in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). This accreditation makes the UDEM one of the only four Mexican universities to achieve this distinction. We are also proud of the response of the job market: 85% of our graduates encounter work within three months of graduation.
We are constantly developing new alliances with universities throughout the world to implement our programs in international education. We offer unique courses and activities that promote an understanding and appreciation of the history, culture, and society in Mexico, as well as the acquisition and perfection of communication and linguistic abilities in Spanish. We have excellent professors who are characterized by the personalized attention they give to the students.
We offer short programs and stays of one or two semesters for exchange students, as well as 44 undergraduate degree programs and 14 graduate degree programs.
Today, Mexico is the most important Spanish-speaking country. It occupies an enviable geopolitical position as the bridge between North America and Latin America.
We welcome you to explore and come to better know our country during your sojourn at the UDEM. I look forward to personally welcoming you in the near future and wish you the best in your future studies.
