Academic Culture of Excellence
Our faculty members have graduated from the best universities in the world. They are research-oriented and have extensive experience in their field of specialty. Our faculty’s work is performed within our ad hoc Pedagogical Model and based on the needs of our students, but most importantly, on the qualities that we aim for in our graduates.
Moreover, we hold important national and international accreditations that reflect our ongoing commitment to offer top-level programs with support from a world-class faculty and infrastructure.
At UDEM, we work to fortify our formative and academic work with essential values such as justice, peace, fraternity, the essential equality of all human beings, and responsible freedom.
We are pioneers in forming a System of Integrity, which was implemented in 2011 and consists of a set of norms and proposals whose objective is to strengthen the values of honesty, veracity, and congruence, among others, thus creating a joint commitment to the institutional philosophy from the whole educational community.
Quality teaching is complemented with top-level facilities: modern classrooms, laboratories, computer rooms with specialized software, an experiential leadership learning center, a theater, a gym, a radio station, student residence halls, and a myriad of recreational spaces and green areas.
In short, a sustainable infrastructure that promotes learning and is designed to create an atmosphere in which each moment represents a formative experience.
We are the Mexican university with the largest percentage of students participating in student exchange programs abroad, thus supplementing their education by experiencing an international university environment. More than 50 per cent of our graduates have had at least one academic experience abroad.
In addition to student mobility, we promote other internationalization initiatives such as academic periods for faculty, the offer of courses with global themes, and on-campus programs such as the Feria Internacional UDEM (UDEM’s International Fair).
