Only 20% of the 50,000 higher education programs in Mexico comply with quality assessment processes, said José Alberto Gaytán García, executive member of the Committee on Social and Administrative Sciences of the Interinstitutional Committees for the Evaluation of Higher Education (CIEES).
The representative of the CIEES explained that 35 thousand programs in the country are in a position to be evaluated according to the principles of quality and the national and international protocols of good educational practices, which are in accordance with the new General Law of Higher Education.
He said that the Autonomous University of Aguascalientes (UAA) is part of an elite group of universities in Mexico that are firmly committed to subjecting their academic programs to external accreditation mechanisms.
He stressed that evaluation is a valid and rigorous academic quality strategy to consolidate good educational practices towards excellence. He mentioned this in the framework of the virtual session for the evaluation of the academic programs of the Bachelor’s Degrees in Business Administration, Production and Services Administration, Financial Administration, Public Accounting, Economics, Marketing and Industrial Relations of the UAA.
For her part, the rector of the UAA, Sandra Yesenia Pinzón Castro, recognized the work that the CIEES have carried out since the 1990s, highlighting the way in which these processes ensure technical quality in the professions, also allowing them to address other major challenges within higher education in the country and in the world.
Accreditation processes establish the credibility and quality assurance of institutions, their educational processes and their products, so that proposals can be made for continuous improvement.
