'''ITESM''' (Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey), located in Monterrey but with branch campuses in many other Mexican cities, too, it's a Private Research University. It surpassed IPN in some Engineering areas (Most notably Computer Science) some years ago and it's on par with UNAM. It has many exchange programs with universities across the world, and even double degree programs; Some of them include: * Double degree with Carnegie-Mellon University in M.S. in Information Technology. * Partnership with John Hopkins Medicine Program. * Summer Programs at Georgetown University, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Cambridge and Yale. * Double degree with UNC-Chapel Hill in M.B.A. * Exchange programs with over 200 universities abroad around 30 countries.

'''ITAM''' (Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México) is by far one of the best universities in Mexico. Founded by the businessman Raúl Baillères in 1946, it has a very specific focus in the Economics sector. With 14 programs, it has been awarded by several sources as having the best programs in Business Administration, Actuarial Science, Economics, International Relations and Public Accounting. It has the best MBA program in Latin America as well as the best Economics PhD in Mexico. Many public figures and government functionaries come from this prestigious university. For graduate degrees and executive preparation: The '''IPADE''' Business school currently ranks as the world's 7th best MBA programs outside the US, and the only one in Latin America, according to Forbes. The '''EGADE''' Master Business School in Monterrey is ranked No.68 of MBA schools worldwide, the first in Latin America For many years it was considered a school exclusive for Affluent people, it aggressively seeks to open its doors to talented minds of all income levels through an amazingly rich scholarship program, funded by the periodic raffles of multi-million dollar, fully furnished mansions along with luxury cars and a big sum of money. If one had to Compare them with American Universities: *'''UNAM''' would be the ''"Harvard"'' of Mexico, devoted to Humanities, Medicine and Law schools, as far as the reach of the institution but not as exclusive. *'''Anahuac''' would be like the ''"Princeton"'' of Mexico, home to both the wealthy and low profile elites, figuring in international rankings and with a great prestige result of its alumni, international programs and social awareness. *'''IBERO''' would be the ''"Yale"'' of Mexico, a private school, with amazing resources constantly ranking amongst the best in Latin America, and ranked as one of the best private universities in Mexico. *'''IPN''', a school devoted to engineering and sciences, with many of its students developing patents, could be considered a school like ''"MIT"'', and in fact, they've won many competitions against them. *'''ITESM''' is located in a city with many industrial companies, the Alma mater of many entrepreneurs, with decent computer and engineering programs, regarded as an good private university, and with a business-oriented curriculum, somewhat similar to Stanford. *'''UDLAP''' The Universidad the las Americas at Puebla, would be the ''"Cornell-U"'' of Mexico. *'''ITAM''' The Instituto tecnológico Autonomo de Mexico would be the ''"Columbia"'' of Mexico *'''ULSA''' The Universidad La Salle would be the ''"Darthmouth College"'' of Mexico Most of the government funded universities on mayor cities (state capital) have short courses on history, gastronomy and cultural subjects, most of them are almost free. Other places are the "Casa de la Cultura", (house of culture) this are historical buildings used for cultural related activities (music concerts, theater, paint and other exhibits, they also have "talleres" (workshops). Most of them have programs for foreigners. Foreigners can take a course to learn Spanish, or even study a whole career. Also, there are some other courses where you can learn traditional Mexican activities such as handcrafts. The tuition at a public school is rarely over $200USD. Many excellent private universities exist in the larger cities (Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, etc.) and provide good education. There are Spanish language schools throughout Mexico. The city with the most schools is Cuernavaca, with more than 50 schools. Oaxaca, San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato also offer a number of schools to choose from. Prices vary; however, most schools are very reasonably priced. Many schools can arrange homestays with local Mexican families. Work Working may require a work visa, which is difficult to get if you just want to freelance for a short time. Many important headquarters are located throughout the main cities of Mexico. Mexican top corporations like Televisa, Bimbo, Cemex, Telmex, Vitro, are often willing to hire professionals who speak English as their native language as most of the business scene is developed with North American corporations. Native English speakers can pick up work, as English teachers. The upside is that English speakers with no knowledge of Spanish are sought after, because they will force their students to practice English. The downside is that salaries are somewhat low. Sleep thumbnail Plaza de liberación and the Cathedral, Guadalajara (File:Plazadeliberacion1.jpg) A number of hotel chains are available throughout Mexico, including Palace Resorts, Le Blanc Spa Resort, Best Western, Holiday Inn, CityExpress, Fiesta Inn, Fairmont, Hilton, Ritz, Camino Real, Starwood (Sheraton, W, Westin, Four Points) and many others. Rates have risen considerably in recent years, though most are still reasonable compared to similar U.S. or European hotels. Chain accommodations are usually clean and comfortable, good for business travelers, but not necessarily for those wanting to experience Mexico itself. Smaller hotels and motels along the roadside may not be safe or comfortable. Boutique hotels are found all over the country; price range varies but all of them are rich in Mexican traditions, elegance and charm, the perfect way to experience the cultural heritage of each state. A great source of information is Melba Levick's book ''Mexicasa,'' found in many libraries and online bookstores. There are also many all-inclusive resorts for those visiting the major beach destinations. There is a large backpacker culture in Mexico, and there are many hostels offering dorm accommodation and private rooms. You can expect to pay between 50 and 150 pesos for a night in a dorm, often including breakfast. Hostels are a fantastic place to share information with fellow travelers, and you can often find people who have been to your future destinations. There are a number of internet sites that allow you to book hostels in advance for a small fee, and this is becoming an increasingly common practice. The most authentic accommodation can usually be found by asking locals or gringos, especially in the smaller towns. If you are unsure about the safety or conditions of the room ask to see it before paying. This will not be considered rude. If you are going to be in cooler areas in the winter consider bringing an electric blanket - as there is power, but no heat in the cheaper hotels. And although it may get quite hot by afternoon outside, adobe and cement are like fridges. An electric tea kettle is also a good idea, hot water might not be available when you want it. If you're traveling with children, use a plastic case (with wheels and a handle) as luggage, and it can be used as a bathtub for the kids if necessary. Budget hotels rarely, if ever, have bathtubs.

Mexico

'''Mexico''' ( it is the eleventh most populous (List of countries by population) and the most populous Spanish-speaking (Hispanophone#Hispanosphere) country in the world and the second most populous country in Latin America. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states (Administrative divisions of Mexico) and a Federal District (Mexico City), its capital and largest city (List of cities in Mexico#Largest cities).

In pre-Columbian Mexico many cultures matured into advanced civilizations such as the Olmec, the Toltec, the Teotihuacan, the Zapotec (Zapotec civilization), the Maya (Maya civilization) and the Aztec before first contact with Europeans. In 1521, the Spanish Empire conquered and colonized (Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire) the territory from its base in Mexico-Tenochtitlan, which was administered as the Viceroyalty of New Spain. This territory would eventually become Mexico following recognition of the colony's independence (Mexican War of Independence) in 1821. The post-independence period was characterized by economic instability (Economic history of Mexico#Independence), the Mexican-American War that led to the territorial cession (Territorial evolution of Mexico) to the United States, the Pastry War, the Franco-Mexican War, a civil war (Reform War), two empires (Emperor of Mexico) and a domestic dictatorship (List of Presidents of Mexico#Porfiriato). The latter led to the Mexican Revolution in 1910, which culminated with the promulgation of the 1917 Constitution (Constitution of Mexico) and the emergence of the country's current political system (Politics of Mexico). In March 1938, through the Mexican oil expropriation private U.S. (United States) and Anglo (United Kingdom)-Dutch (Netherlands) oil companies were nationalized to create the state-owned Pemex oil company.

Mexico has one of the world's largest economies, it is the tenth largest oil producer in the world, the largest silver producer in the world and is considered both a regional power and middle power. Mexico has membership in prominent institutions such as the UN, the WTO, the G20 and the Uniting for Consensus.
