With professionals in Design-Thinking, Business Creation, Anthropology, Marketing and Rhetoric from Mexico, the USA and Germany we are creating an intercultural, interdisciplinary network of knowledge and experience that we are eager to make you part of.

engaged international students of all disciplines,
becoming part of a generation of innovators.

3. Strong interest in social, political and global issues
4. Self-aware and experienced in Leadership, Teamwork and Project Management


Preferred, though not required:
