Universidad de Monterrey (UDEM) was founded in 1969 by a group of representatives from five Catholic orders, local business people, professionals, and educators with the goal of building an institution of higher learning based on Christian beliefs and tradition, humanistic values and ideals, and social consciousness and awareness. Since then, UDEM has forged a reputation as one of the finest private universities in Mexico, attracting students from across the country. UDEM is recognized for its concept of holistic education (formacion integral), standards of academic excellence, and community service commitment. The university is accredited in the United States by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Total enrollment: 12,158 (2010)

ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.

ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
