Tecnologico de Monterrey (ITESM) is one of the largest private and coeducational multi-campus universities in Latin America with 90,000 students at the high school, undergraduate, and postgraduate levels. Based in Monterrey, it has 26 campuses throughout the country and 18 offices around the world. It is known for having one of the top graduate business schools in the region and being one of the leaders in patent applications among Mexican universities.
ITESM is the only Latin American institution at the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU) —an organization committed to innovations in both teaching and learning, and at Universitas 21, an international network of research-intensive universities established as an international reference point and resource for strategic thinking on issues of global significance.
The School of Engineering and Sciences of the Tecnologico de Monterrey, Campus Monterrey, is one of the largest engineering schools in Mexico with about 7000 undergraduate students. About half of the students are from the metropolitan area of Monterrey and the other half come from all states of Mexico and some Latin American countries such as Bolivia, Ecuador and Central America.
