“Vince in Bono Malum” (Conquer evil with good) is the synthesis of the philosophy of Universidad del Mayab. It is a concept which repudiates negative attitudes through a program of positive action in order to overcome the evil of ignorance with the wisdom of science; the evil of improvisation with skillful professionalism supported by modern technology, the evil of rash materialism with the benevolence of humanism, the evil of social antagonisms with the benefits of peace and harmony, the evil of injustice with the virtue of charity and the evil of audacity with the merit of enlightenment.
