Fall 2021 semester update

We are glad to welcome students  back on campus in an hybrid model.

The health situation in Mexico City is still very risky and highly uncertain. Although the vaccination process has begun, it has been a slow process, and there is still a long road ahead before students are fully vaccinated.

Our priority continues to be the well-being of our students and we strive to offer them exciting learning experiences at ITAM. 

​We look forward to welcoming them again in spring 2022.

Graduate Students

Almost all our courses in the Master programs are taught in Spanish and the student’s average age is 28 (with mandatory 1 year of work experience for taking MBA courses). We do not require anybody to have a proficiency certificate in Spanish, although you should have at least a B2 level to be able to take any of these courses. You will be able to take courses from all our Master programs but your enrollment in Master courses is subject to the approval of the respective program director.

Academic requirements


Students can revise our course list, but chosen courses must be approved by the Home Institution and the master's director in charge of each course. 

ITAM allows Exchange Students to take courses from any of our departments regardless of their area of study.

Our list of courses corresponds to the previous trimester/year. It is the Exchange Student's responsibility to verify with ITAM's International Office if chosen courses will be availble during their exchange.

Number of subjects

As an Exchange student you must enroll in at least four subjects per period. Should you choose to stay for two terms at  ITAM, you must not fail more than two subjects from the first period to register for the second one.



Grades are assigned in whole numbers only, on a scale from 0 to 10, with 6 as the minimum passing grade and 10 as the highest. All the students must present and pass their end-of-course examinations so the other evaluation criteria can be taken into account. Under no circumstances will a numerical grade under 6 be registered in the ITAM records. In order to obtain a numerical grade, it is mandatory to pass the subject. No credit can be given for partial fulfillment of the course requirements. Any grade under 6.0 will be registered as "N.A.” (Not-Accredited).


In graduate programs, 33 hours of theoretical class work per trimester represent four ITAM credits. There is no strict, absolutely certain formula for transferring workloads from one system to the next. Nonetheless, for the purposes of establishing a reasonable system of credit transfer between ITAM and partner universities using the ECTS credit system, if the topics covered in the syllabus generally fulfill the same objectives of the course in the home institution, most academic departments have generally considered that a European class granting 4 ECTS credits should be accredited at ITAM as a 4 credit class.

Students must corroborate with their home universities how the credit transfer system works with ITAM in order to avoid problems when revalidating their courses.
