The Bryan School partner in Mexico is Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM), better known as the "Tec de Monterrey."

The Tec is a system of schools with 33 campuses throughout the country. Six of the campuses host exchange students from UNCG:

  1. Monterrey
  2. Toluca
  3. Cuernavaca
  4. Querétaro
  5. Mazatlán
  6. San Luis Potosí
  7. Banks

While each campus offers business coursework, some offer more variety than others. Students have two options in Mexico:

  • Take special courses offered primarily to International students that are taught in English.
  • Mainstream with Mexican students and take courses taught in Spanish.

For the first option, students do not need to know any Spanish. It is helpful to have had SPA 101 or high school Spanish. Each campus teaches select business coursework in English.

For the second option, students should have taken Spanish through the 204 level. This is a great opportunity for International Business majors. Every campus of the Tec provides a wide variety of business coursework, including several of the following classes:
