MONDRAGON EDUCACION INTERNACIONAL was founded in 2010 from the union of the University of Mondragon and Alecop S. Coop. It was created with a clear mission in the MONDRAGON CORPORATION: promoting and managing higher education, based on the accumulated knowledge of all the training and education institutions of the Corporation.
Currently Mondragon Educación Internacional manages the University of MONDRAGON-UCO in Mexico, four Centres of Excellence of Vocational Training in Saudi Arabia and participates in the Unipanamericana University of Colombia.
The MONDRAGON’s Knowledge Area combines the development of knowledge, skills, and values, and maintains close relations with business, especially Mondragon co-operatives.
Training-education is mainly linked to the dynamism of the University of Mondragon, the significant role that Politeknika Ikastegia Txorierri, Arizmendi Ikastola and Lea Artibai Ikastetxea play in their respective areas and the activity of the Management and Co-operative Development Centre Otalora.
Technological innovation is generated through the Cooperatives’ own R&D departments, the Corporate Science and Technology Plan, the Corporation’s 14 technology centers and the GARAIA INNOVATION PARK.
