MONTERREY, Nuevo León, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In the 80 years since its founding, the community of graduates from the Tecnológico de Monterrey have played a decisive role in the generation of economic and social value, both in Mexico and globally, creating at least 3.2 million jobs worldwide and establishing 220,000 companies.

These findings are based on graduate data from the Global Economic and Social Impact Study of Tecnológico de Monterrey conducted by the English ranking firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), in collaboration with the education institution. More than 25,000 alumni from Tec de Monterrey (EXATEC) participated in the survey to measure and identify the community’s added value.

As part of its 80th anniversary, Tec de Monterrey revisited its origins, the journey taken, and the future of an institution born from the conviction that “education can achieve anything.” This effort included analyzing the impact of the EXATEC community, as representatives of the values that shape and define the institution.

The results reflect that, in its first eighty years of history, graduates have been instrumental in generating economic and social value by:

  • Creating 3.2 million jobs globally
  • Establishing 220,000 companies
  • Contributing 1.3 million hours of volunteer work per month
  • Creating 460,000 jobs in non-profit organizations
  • Establishing 32,000 non-profit organizations

The study results demonstrate that the institution has been able to impact its students in adopting and strengthening values such as: innovation, generation of solutions for and by society, and generosity—values that now define and create pride within the Tec community. Simultaneously, it serves as a guide to prioritize the goals of the next decade: vigorously promote academic and teaching innovation, expand and strengthen collaboration with allied institutions and organizations, and enhance the daily task of generating cutting-edge knowledge.
