How to formalize an agreement with us?

We work collaboratively with other institutions to strengthen their areas of teaching, extension and research. This process includes:

a) The compilation of the information necessary to determine the type of collaboration to be developed.

b) Obtaining the approval of the faculties and / or agencies involved.

c) The analysis of the proposals received to determine the relevance and viability of the agreement.

d) The negotiation of the conditions of the collaboration and the elaboration of an agreement proposal that incorporates what was agreed between both institutions.

e) Obtaining the approval of the legal area.

f) The signing of the agreement by the competent authorities for the celebration of national and international agreements.

In all cases, the area in charge of formalizing Agreements at CES University is the Office of Global Affairs, through the Coordination of Inter-institutional Agreements.

Agreement formats

It is recommended that the proposed agreements be valid for five (5) years. However, both parties will decide the validity and the formats to be used. If the parties have a common language, two copies are signed per agreement.
In the case of establishing agreements with institutions whose official language is different from Spanish, four copies are signed, two in each language.
