The tutors of the modules are well- known instructors in their study areas, with training at the master or PhD level, which allows for creating an environment that facilitates the exchange and direct feedback from experiences of the countries represented by the students and teaching staff and the structuring of knowledge from a pluridisciplinary and regional approach.

We intended to establish a body of teaching staff that would reflect the international nature of the program and it is for this reason that we have Colombian, Spanish, Argentinian, Peruvian and Mexican instructors.
