It is financed with public resources. It is considered one of Mexico's top think tanks.
The admission process is one of the hardest of Mexico and Latin America with admission rates around the 0.19 and 0.23% for bachelor's degrees.
CIDE has six academic divisions: Economics, Public Administration, International Studies, Political Studies, Legal Studies, and History.
The center's organizational structure reflects its pluralistic roots and its orientation towards promoting leadership and innovation. This flexibility allows faculty and alumni to pursue both individual interests and institutional priorities related to CIDE's three core functions: teaching, research, and outreach to the public and decision makers.
