Establishing a Latin American University Honors Program: The Case of Campus Monterrey, Tecnológico De Monterrey, Mexico
Khan, Mohammed Ayub; Morales-Menendez, Ruben
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v13 n2 p73-100 Fall-Win 2012
The university honors program of Campus Monterrey, Tecnológico de Monterrey, evolved from the international degree program that was first offered in the spring semester of 2002. Originally six programs were offered in the School of Business and School of Engineering: (1) BA Business Administration; (2) BA Financial Management; (3) BA Finance and Accounting; (4) BA Marketing; (5) BA International Business; and (6) BS Industrial and Systems Engineering. Once introduced, the international degree program received such a good response from the student community that, in the following semesters, the number of programs available in an international version increased from six to eleven across new areas of engineering, computer science, and humanities and social sciences. Since then, the number of academic programs with an international component has been increasing steadily. Today, thirty-nine bachelor's programs are available in this modality. The honors program is designed to identify and select talented students and to offer them an integrated educational program through a dynamic dedicated, and well-prepared faculty. The important components of the model are described in this article.
