WELLESLEY, Mass., May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tecnologico de Monterrey has joined The Global Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education (GCEE), founded by Babson College, an alliance of like-minded institutions from around the globe that are committed to entrepreneurship education. GCEE provides a unique opportunity to share best practices with colleagues from around the world, collaborate with member institutions on a variety of initiates, gain in-depth access to Babson's expertise, and remain on the cutting edge of entrepreneurship education.

Babson and Tecnologico de Monterrey signed the agreement during ceremonies at the Monterrey campus in Mexico. The agreement between the Tecnologico de Monterrey and Babson calls for curriculum development and teacher training, designed to carry out activities related to entrepreneurship education in Mexico and Latin America.

"We have collaborated with Tecnologico de Monterrey for many years, starting with the student and academic exchanges, research programs and faculty development. Signing this agreement is the next step for Tecnologico de Monterrey, joining the Global Consortium, composed of many like-minded institutions that are committed to using entrepreneurship to make the world a better place," said Babson Provost Shahid Ansari.

In fact, the story of entrepreneurship at Babson and Tecnologico de Monterrey coincidentally began in 1978. We have the same history, the same timeline, the same approach and this agreement gives us the opportunity to do things together that we could not do alone," said Babson President Leonard Schlesinger.
