Boys and girls from Mexico, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Equatorial Guinea, Colombia, China, Peru and Gabon explain in general the international vocation of the institution, which has more than one hundred foreign students, as well as teachers and professors from other countries.
All of that helps to create a cosmopolitan and intercultural environment that considerably enhances the study process and encourages the exchange of ideas in a globalized world, which will be the workplace of these students.
