During the last week of December, a joint delegation of Mondragon Corporation and Mondragon Unibersitatea, led by Iñigo Ucin and Bixente Atxa, travelled to Monterrey, Mexico to promote collaboration with both the companies in the group and the University with local players in Monterrey. B+I Strategy has worked actively in this process with our CEO and Partner, Sabin Azua, playing a key role in all the working sessions.
Over the course of the visit, a greater commitment to collaboration was made between the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, and Mondragon Unibersitatea with a view to implementing numerous initiatives in the areas of mobility, internationalisation, research and executive programmes. It is expected that this collaboration will be intense over the coming years leading to a strengthening of the education models of both academic institutions.
Furthermore, closer ties were also developed between Mondragon Corporation and several companies in Monterrey along with a process of rapprochement being established with the Advisory Board of Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (TEC).
Finally, a symposium was held at EGADE Business School (TEC) where the Co-operative Model was presented by Iñigo Ucin and Sabin Azua (President of Mondragon Corporation and CEO and Partner of B+I Strategy respectively).
