About the University

Universidad de Monterrey (UDEM) is one of the best universities, according to the QS Top 50 Under 50 international ranking. In our founding principles, we capture and express a culture centered on the humanization of each and every person; an openness to every creed and background that rejects all forms of privilege and discrimination, and the conviction that transcendence is achieved in the service of others.

The whole-person education of students has been a distinctive characteristic of UDEM, that is why our educational model is composed of two parts: UDEM Academic Plan and UDEM Formative Model.
As part of our academic excellence, we strive to develop the competencies needed in a profession, while ensuring the development of leadership skills, the promotion of values, and the construction of a social conscience through service and the promotion of international educational experiences.

Our School of Business currently holds both the AACSB, and AMBA accreditations, while the university is accredited by SACS-COC.

Monterrey is the third largest city in Mexico and is the capital of Nuevo Leon state. Although there are prehistoric archaeological sites in the area, the city was not founded until 1596 by Spanish families. With its close proximity to Texas and the U.S., Monterrey has always been an important commercial city. Modern Monterrey is a flourishing industrial and commercial center, and is Mexico's wealthiest, highest educated metropolitan area.
