The environment at Tecnológico de Monterrey is designed to offer students multiple opportunities to actively participate in professional and personal development endeavors. Students learn through multiple facets such as problem solving, projects, collaborative and service learning, as well as case studies and research.

Various courses are offered at different levels of proficiency in Spanish. Proficiency in Spanish is determined by ITESM's "Spanish as a Foreign Language" examination. Those students who are evaluated to be at the level of "Superior" may enroll in any regular courses at ITESM prior to taking regular courses in which Spanish is the medium of instruction.

Some courses offered to international students include: Intensive Spanish, Business in Mexico, Hotel & Tourism, and Mexican History & Culture. Regular courses (in Spanish) are available in Agriculture, Architecture, Business, Food Technology, Humanities, Exact Sciences, Computers, Engineering, and Social Sciences.  For more information on course listings, click here.


Tecnológico De Monterrey offers a variety of campuses throughout Mexico in the following cities: Queretaro, Guadalajara, Mazatlan, Cuernavaca, Mexico City, State of Mexico, San Luis Potosi, and Toluca. There are many different options available to you between each Tecnológico de Monterrey Campuses.



Studying at Tecnológico De Monterrey students have three options when it comes to housing. You can choose independent apartments near campus, a host family, and the final option is living in the University dorms/residence halls.

Living with a host family is recommended for international students by the university. Homestays provide students with laundry and three meals per day. This is one of the best opportunities for students to fully embrace Mexican culture.


Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships

Exchange programs are affordable study abroad options that allow students to pay UW-W tuition while studying abroad.  As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program.  Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, and UW-W and external study abroad scholarships are available.

UW-W tuition, as well as the Global Experiences Application Fee and CISI international insurance, are billed to the student’s UW-W account.  Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. living expenses) or to the host university (e.g. accommodation).
