Semester in Mexico: Business

Host Institution

Our host institution, the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG), was founded in 1935 following agitated conflicts with the government over autonomy and against the establishment of a socialist curriculum. Today, with offerings in design and architecture, natural sciences, engineering, business administration, social sciences, healthcare, and the humanities, the UAG is one of the top five universities in Mexico and houses nearly twenty thousand students.

The main campus is located just outside Guadalajara and there is ample public transportation to and from the city’s historic downtown. It has a wide array of services including a bookstore, counseling center, wireless internet access, cafeterias, coffee shops, banks and ATMs, mechanic shop, television and radio station, photography studio, editorial group, gyms, sporting facilities, and even a football team, Los Tecos, which won the Mexican first division championship during the 1993-94 season.

Visiting students have access to flexible semester curriculum options. Students interested in learning and improving their Spanish may take language classes at the UAG’s Centro Internacional de Idiomas (CII). Depending on their level of Spanish, they also have the option of enrolling directly into courses offered by the UAG to its Mexican student body. Disciplines include business, psychology, international relations, communications, and education. Students can also combine the Spanish language classes offered by CII with the immersion courses with Mexican students.

  

Accreditation

The Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara is accredited by the Secretaría de Educación Pública, the Mexican Ministry of Education.
