Eugenio Garza Lagüera Entrepreneurship Institute



The Eugenio Garza Lagüera Entrepreneurship Institute (IEEGL) represents an exciting opportunity for a new Director of the Institute, to lead one of our University´s top priority; the development of what we call the “Entrepreneurial Spirit” in all our community. This “Spirit” is understood as the passion to propose and implement innovative solutions, generating new economic, social, and environmental value to transform our reality. Being considered the largest Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Latin America, and being ranked in 2020 by The Princeton Review Top Undergraduate Schools on Entrepreneurship as the # 8 University, this position represents a vibrant endeavor for a consolidated and visionary leader in the field.


Reporting to the Dean of the Business School, the new IEEGL Director will face vibrant challenges that will continue the expansion of our Entrepreneurial ecosystem and culture in most of the activities held at Tecnológico de Monterrey, such as the strengthening of our programs to enhance the creative competences at the undergraduate level in all our programs but especially in the Entrepreneurship Undergraduate Program that receives hundreds of new students every semester throughout 26 campuses along Mexico´s geography,  the promotion of our entrepreneurial platforms to create new local, regional and national ventures that continue to expand opportunities for venture companies created in a network of incubators and business accelerators in most of our locations; with this infrastructure, we have turned our campuses into laboratories of real-life business environments.


In terms of Research, the IEEGL connects and leverages the initiatives that emerge from our two Research Specialized Groups on subjects like Social Entrepreneurship, Education in Entrepreneurship, Ecosystems, and Intra-Entrepreneurship. The new Director will also lead the incorporation of an entrepreneurial administration model as the basis for our Research agenda in all our Schools and disciplines and the consolidation of the Institute as a link between Tec de Monterrey and other leading Multinational organizations in the field.

Part of its responsibilities includes the execution and growth of INCmtythe leading entrepreneurial festival in Latin America.

With all this and more on the agenda, this continues to be a time of challenge and forward-thinking at the IEEGL.
