THE TUTORING SYSTEM AND THE GRADUATION EFFICIENCY OF THE STUDENTS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION SCHOOL OF THE UNIVERSIDAD VERACRUZANA

Introduction:
As of 1999 the Universidad Veracruzana proceeded with a change in its educational plans and programs, starting a transition to an Integrated and Flexible Educational Model (MEIF) and as support to the integrated formation, the Tutoring Institutional System was implemented in the year 2003, with the purpose of providing guidance in the academic career of the students, promoting permanence, improving their professional training and concluding with a successful graduation.
This model consists of promoting their autonomy by having an adequate decision making process throughout their academic career, according to their needs and interests; assigning a tutor, who from their enrollment will provide the necessary guidance to be able to control their educational experiences based on their transversality.
This research presents the importance of the tutoring system for the students during their professional career in the Administration program of the Universidad Veracruzana, Veracruz Region and its relevance on the graduation efficiency, as an indicator in the average duration of the students that are about to graduate, detecting the positive and negative factors, proposing a better functioning of the tutoring, the survey made to the students is a fundamental part of this research.

General objective:
To analyze which factors from the tutoring system influence the students’ graduation efficiency.

Conclusion:
Having obtained and analyzed the survey results, one can appreciate that the tutor’s orientation influences in a significant way the students’ decision making process in their academic career.
Through this diagnoses one can detect some negative options regarding the tutoring, since a minority does not attend their tutoring sessions. It is necessary to establish a commitment between the tutors and the tutees in such a way that the tutoring process can be improved for the students’ sake and for the University itself.
This research is addressed to the students who currently are in their final year and it was determined that more than 50% of the students will conclude their studies in a proper way and the most popular graduation options are the Degree General Exit Exam (EGEL) and the thesis.
The tutoring system is an academic guide that the educational institutions offer students and in our Institution according to the results this contributed positively in the integrated development of over 90% of the s14 enrollment in Administration.
The professors acting as tutors are the University professors and they do both activities: teaching and tutoring; in this project the students expressed their satisfaction on their tutors when providing tutoring.
The curricular mapping of the Administration Program is designed for graduating in an average of 8 periods with the tutor’s guidance, however, there is a significant delay in the enrollment.
