Best management schools in Mexico, 2021

You should consider studying in Mexico for several reasons. The food is as flavorsome as it gets. Taco Tuesdays can be as long as you want them to be! Even the weather is fantastic as it doesn’t snow in most parts of the country.

Mexican universities offer education at relatively low tuition rates, and the cost of living is significantly less compared to the US. While you can pursue most of the courses in English, learning Spanish helps further improve your career prospects.

You can explore Mexico’s historical sites and museums for cheap, thanks to discounts and free entry for students. You can go surfing, get a tan, and experience captivating sunsets on the beaches.

The best part of staying in Mexico are the celebrations and festivals taking place throughout the year. Carnaval, Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos), and Cinco de Mayo are the most vibrant festivals you should partake in.
