The Master in Education Entrepreneurship (MTO) is the first graduate program of its kind in Latin America, offering students the necessary tools in order to conceptualize, develop, manage, and scale entrepreneurial initiatives focused on educational settings.

The academic program is proposed by the School of Humanities and Education (EHE) and it is part of Tecnológico de Monterrey.

The intersection in the training of areas such as education and entrepreneurship, while developing an entrepreneurial project, combined with the academic training of expert teachers of content and the practical experience of project advisors and mentors, provides students with the necessary tools to promote entrepreneurial solutions to problems in the field of education.

Future MTO program graduates will put their entrepreneurial projects into practice not only within a school or formal education setting, but they may also consider the corporate area as a field of action or other educational scenarios (non-formal education, for life).
