Of course, this is a decision in which both the possibilities and the preparation influence, however, it is not surprising that when it comes to choosing the best institutions are sought according to various criteria, such as the educational level or the prestige that they have the institutions, to name a couple. In the case of Mexico, when it comes to renowned universities, UNAM almost always stands out. The so-called “Maximum House of Studies” has managed to forge a good reputation over the years, however, when it comes to choosing which is the best in Latin America, this university is not the first.
