About Eugenio Garza Sada

  • Eugenio Garza Sada (January 11, 1892 – September 17, 1973) was an industrialist in the city of Monterrey, Mexico best known for founding the Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) school system in the country.
  • Garza was born into a business family, with his father founding the CuauhtĂ©moc Brewery in Monterrey in 1890.
