Technological Institute of Monterrey
History and objectives
The Technological Institute of Monterrey was founded in 1943 thanks to the vision of Eugenio Garza Sada and a group of entrepreneurs who formed a non-profit association called Enseñanza e Investigación Superior, A. C. Tec is a private, non-profit, independent institution with no political and religious affiliations. Besides, it enjoys the status of Free University School, which enables it to function as an educational institution.
The Technological Institute of Monterrey’s goal is to produce information capable of transforming lives. We use educational experiences to shape individuals into agents of change willing to work for the benefit of all—individuals who take responsibility for their own lives and are aware that their actions can transform others—capable, talented, upright, committed, involved visionaries with a global perspective and entrepreneurial spirit, not only at the university but in all spheres of their lives.
The supreme governing body of the Technological Institute of Monterrey is the Assembly of Associates, which is made up of leaders from different communities in Mexico. Its responsibility is to safeguard the vision and values of the Tec and help in the establishment and fulfilment of its strategy, as well as in the management of its resources and talent.
A Board of Directors is appointed from the members of the Assembly of Associates, which is in charge of ensuring the good operation and functioning of Tec of Monterrey. This work is supported by a series of Councils and Committees.
Additionally, the Board of Directors has the support of Local Councils in most of its campuses.
The Technological Institute of Monterrey has 26 campuses in the states of Mexico, Ciudad de Mexico, Cuernavaca, Jalisco, Nuevo León, Puebla and Querétaro. Besides, it has 18 offices around the world.
The academic calendar is divided into two periods. The first runs from August to December and the second from February to June.
The academic areas of the Technological Institute of Monterrey are the following:
- Social Sciences.

Tec of Monterrey international programmes offer unique experiences and the opportunity to encounter different cultures and discover that commonalities far outweigh differences.

Therefore, as part of its internationalisation strategy, the institution worked on forging solid relations with hundreds of universities across the planet.
