Resumen

AMESTICA-RIVAS, Luis; LLINAS-AUDET, Xavier  y  ORIOL ESCARDIBUL, Josep. Curricular Renovation Costs: A Methodology for the Economic Valuation of University Degrees . Form. Univ. [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.1, pp.89-100. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062017000100010.

The processes of curriculum renewal in universities have been built from the singularities of each institution. While economic and financial aspects are strategic in university management, there is a lack of research that relates these aspects with curriculum renewal processes. From a study case of a Chilean public university, the importance of curriculum renewal in university management is analyzed and a methodology that systematizes costs and value economically this process is proposed. Using an analysis of cutting costs and financial tools, actual value cost (VAC), equivalent annual cost (CAE), Monte Carlo simulation, and balance point, it is found that in a context of self-financing, the balance point of each undergraduate program increases. In the absence of extraordinary support from the Government to finance the processes of curriculum renewal, undergraduate programs should increase an average of six students per cohort or look for new sources of funding. The curriculum renewal requires adequate resources for implementation in quantity and deadlines to ensure the academic and financial sustainability of the institution.

Palabras clave : curriculum renewal; university funding; university management; curriculum innovation; economic valuation.
