This paper presents the results of a research project related to the learning styles of postgraduate distance learning students from the University of Tamaulipas, Mexico. These postgraduate studies were created in 1996: nowadays, 14 generations have graduated from the Master of Human Resources Development; 13 generations, from the Master of Quality Management; and 8 from the Master in Educational Technology. The instrument used in this research was created by Whiteley and is based on the model of multiple intelligences developed by Gardner and the neuro-linguistic programming model by Bandler and Grinder. The research was conducted with a sample of 72 participants, who represent one hundred percent of the students enrolled. The results showed that the most prevalent learning styles are logical and social, and the auditory and physical learning styles were the less predominant. Consequently, it was able to recommend content, resources and learning activities for each learning style.
