BLOG POST: MBA Students Explore Mexico City

Mexico is known for its rich history, strong cultural blend and distinct cuisine. But it’s also a significant international trade hub and manufacturing powerhouse.

Mexico is connected to 60% of the world’s GDP. Mexico is the world’s 11th largest economy. Free trade is the cornerstone of the economy, and its proximity to the US and position as America’s third largest trading partner is a key competitive advantage.

Mexico is a critical trading partner and worth exploring during your time at LFGSM.
