The McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship and the Tecnológico de Monterrey partner to offer Mexican exchange students access to the top-ranked UA entrepreneurship program.

Through a longstanding collaboration, the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship has worked with Tecnológico de Monterrey to assist in teaching entrepreneurship-focused courses and judging case competitions.

“Most importantly, we’ve helped make it possible for them to send students to participate in the McGuire Entrepreneurship Program,” said program director Sherry Hoskinson. “The number varies every year. Last year, three students participated; this year we have one.”

The entrepreneurship program accepts 100 students each year; 65 of those slots go to undergraduate students, and the remainder go to Eller MBA students and students from other disciplines and programs, such as Tec de Monterrey. “Having a mix of students creates an enriching experience for all,” Hoskinson said.

Mario Rosas and his brother Lucas both completed the program in spring. Along with Cristina Burgos, they came to the UA as exchange students from the Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Sonora Norte in Hermosillo.
