The Administration and Management Week is an event made up of a series of activities and conferences given by renowned speakers at the local, national and international level. Its objective is to provide new knowledge and tools related to specialized topics in administration and today’s society, which complement the professional and personal training of the attendees.

Martha Alicia Alonso Castañón pointed out that a Bachelor of Administration and Management is an agent of change, which takes advantage of the uncertain conditions of the environment and turns them into opportunities through resolving conflicts, overcoming obstacles, and recognizing the talent of employees and contributing to their professional growth. All this helps employees differentiate themselves and succeed in the personal and professional environment. She recognized the effort of the students and the support of the teachers for the realization of this important event year after year, and she mentioned that it contributes to strengthening the knowledge and learning experiences of the student community.
