  • "See" and understand controversial international events from a perspective different to the Mexican and/or regional perception.
  • Learn various ways to identify and develop leadership competencies.
  • Identify logical and structural errors in academic writing and essays.

Professional studies area

This area is made up of:

Core courses: These are mandatory courses which provide a profession’s basic knowledge.

Professional concentration courses: These courses go in depth into one field of the profession and they respond to the needs of the productive, cultural, and social sectors.

Elective courses from another discipline: The aim of these courses is to broaden the students’ professional outlook, strengthen their academic training and education, and facilitate their entrance into the workplace.

Job placement: Its aim is to introduce students to the practice of their profession through work activities and/or projects which are linked to their academic program.
