Description
Summary:Specialized training of masters in the Ecuadorian educational system in recent years has undergone substantial transformations. One of these processes is the degree, given the large number of professionals who have completed the curriculum but have not obtained their degree. The diagnosis of this situation at the Universidad Tecnologica Universidad de America (UTI) was conducted between January and March 2015. The causes of lack of titration were studied using a methodology that describes the particularities of this process through interviews with graduates, tutors and academic managers. The Higher Education Council established specific policies that offer opportunities for non-graduate graduates through the design and implementation of the special titling unit, but the ways in which this purpose was achieved without diminishing their quality were not specified. This article offers an experience that evidences the transformation of the degree from the management of the academic team of Postgraduate, observing the current context in which the training process of the Master is developed. It concludes with a proposal that surpasses the previous one in which the director and the examiners had different positions; and expects to achieve a degree accredited by its quality in the new academic offer considering the indicators of the Council of Evaluation, Accreditation and Quality Assurance of Higher Education. A study that would complement these results, is the analysis of the scope of the research and the interest that generates in the international scientific community.
