Tecnológico de Monterrey will launch 7 new professional degrees as part of its TEC21 Educational Model.

The TEC21 Model includes challenge-based learning, flexibility (as to how, when, and where you learn), a memorable university experience, and inspiring teachers and mentors.

This model will be fully embraced by its 44 degrees over the 2019-2020 cycle, although it has already been partially implemented in all of them.


The new degrees follow two major trends:

  • Development and utilization of smart technology
  • Creation of transformative solutions for the social, labor, and educational challenges of the future

 

1.         BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE

Carrera Inteligencia de Negocios.

The challenge

The need for business analytics based on Big Data has grown exponentially. There’s a great deal of data and too few sufficiently trained specialists to analyze it.

The new degree

Will create specialists in business, technology and statistics, who will be able to understand the market and identify risks and opportunities.
 

 

2.         DATA SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS

Ciencia de Datos y Matemáticas.

The challenge

According to the World Economic Forum, 2.5 quintillion bytes of information are generated every day and robust algorithms are required for organizational processes and security.

3.         ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING

The new degree

Specialists from the Urban Planning degree will develop innovative solutions for cities through cutting-edge methods and technology.

 

 

5.         EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION

Innovación Educativa.

The challenge

According to LinkedIn, between 8 and 9 percent of the jobs that will exist in 2030 have not yet been invented, so words such as change and adaptation are essential for education in the 21st century.

6.         DEVELOPING TALENT AND ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE

7.         GOVERNMENT AND PUBLIC TRANSFORMATION

The challenge

True professionals are required for the public transformation of 21st century societies. They must be able to push for the changes necessary and help put them into practice.
