From Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico | studying at AUAS Faculty of Business and Economics


I’m 21 years old and I’m in the fourth year of my professional career. I’m a Mexican student and I’ll be living in Amsterdam for the next couple of months. Despite being an engineer, here I’m studying in AUAS at the Faculty of Business and Economics. Back in my country I used to play american football and football soccer at the representative teams of my University, but I also really like food, music, arts and cinema.

For a long time, I wanted to come to study in Europe to experience living in a place very far from home, with a lot of different cultures, customs and traditions. There could not be a better place for that than Amsterdam! With more than 100 different nationalities living in the city you can meet people from all around the world.

I decided to study at AUAS because it has relationships with my home University, meaning the programs and academic environment would be very similar. Feel free to ask me for recommendations prior to your arrival, challenges of being an engineer studying business, good places to eat or any other topic, hopefully I’ll be able to help you.
