(Ver esta página en español)

Peru - iStockCarnegie Mellon University's H. John Heinz III College is committed to creating strong international partnerships, and we have relationships with several organizations and higher education institutions in Latin America. Through these initiatives, we offer scholarships and dual-degree opportunities to more than 50 students from Latin American countries each year.

Tecnológico de Monterrey: MSIT - MATI (Monterrey, Mexico)

The MSIT- MATI program is currently geared towards working IT professionals in Mexico, Central, and South America. This is a dual degree program whereby graduates will receive both a masters degree from Carnegie Mellon and a masters degree from Tecnológico de Monterrey. There is a required week on campus at both universities. The majority of the course delivery is via the well-regarded and tuned distance programs at CMU and ITESM.

Fundación Mexicana Para la Educación "FUNED" (Mexico)

The Fundación Mexicana Para la Educación (FUNED), a not-for-profit private foundation whose stated mission is to help Mexican college graduates develop their potential to become the leaders of a better tomorrow for their country, has agreed to provide loans for up to three students each year who are Mexican nationals and attend graduate programs at the Heinz College. The eligibility for loan funds from FUNED may be up to $40,000 for a full-time Heinz student in a 2-year program and up to $30,000 for a MISM student. Information about FUNED loans may be obtained from the FUNED website.
