In January 2003, the Kennedy School and the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM, or “the Tec”) signed an initial four-year linkage agreement designed to support the Tec’s new public administration masters program, develop avenues for academic collaboration, and provide opportunities for Kennedy School faculty and students to learn about Mexican public policy issues. We have carried out a variety of successful activities, including a series of curriculum and case teaching workshops; preparation of a number of new teaching cases on Mexico; three executive programs; summer courses for Tec masters-degree students on micro-finance, energy policy, and poverty-alleviation policy; a joint research project on poverty and poverty alleviation; workshops on government reform and on legitimacy and accountability for NGOS; a series of student grant competitions; and recurring visits back and forth between KSG and EGAP faculty. Major lines of ongoing collaborative work currently include poverty, government reform, and non-profit management.
Numerous other KSG faculty and staff, as well as some Graduate School of Education faculty, have participated in teaching, research, visits, workshops, and consulting with Tec faculty.
