Institutional Message

We at the Universidad de Monterrey have the aim of inspiring our community to become the best version of themselves. 

Our 2030 mission has adopted digital transformation with the purpose of elevating the institution to the next level in teaching and learning, which will also offer students a differentiated value proposition. In order to achieve this, we have implemented strategies through the use of technology with some critical components such as organizational and cultural design, and the creation of new competencies in order to facilitate the evolution of our academic and administrative processes. 

We will continue to strengthen our initiatives aiming to develop skills with a humanist hallmark and to transcend in the service of others, through the creation of products and services that guarantee a better student experience while at the same time they accompany parents and students in the academic processes with the best support tools in order to achieve educational excellence and to continue preparing them throughout their professional life.

At UDEM, we commit ourselves to offering the principles, values, and teaching instruments necessary to motivate the new generations to improve an ever-changing world, always inspiring their best version.
