HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLY IN MEXICO AND ITS RELATION WITH THE LABOR MARKET

R. Salazar Amador, F. Pacheco García, G. Rosano Ortega

Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (MEXICO)
Mexican Higher Education, like other developing countries, is undergoing a significant change since new global demands are at stake. Both public and private universities are reconsidering their mission and future development, making a balance, and reassessing their goals in the face of new challenges posed by actual Society. The adaptation of the educational system to this dynamic, unstable, and evolutionary reality is fundamental for the success; Higher-Education institutions in Mexico must have such an attitude to change.

However, how this learning should be and what direction it should follow so that the Employment Rate —the ratio of working-age people who are employed— increases and promotes that more than 49 million Mexicans who will make up the labor force by 2012 have a job. Briefly discusses the different learning methodologies that can be adopted and intends to avoid hyper-specialization arguing typecasting and fractionation of knowledge; much more powerful general intelligence is, the bigger its power to deal with particular problems. Also is justified the implementation of programs of study through flexible arrangements so as to further the inter and multidisciplinarity according to student ability and aspiration.

Once the issue of learning method was resolved is analyzed what direction should such learning take in order to solve the labor market requirements. Is considered that although the global economy and the products that promote it offer signs about the labor market, there is no historical doubt about the fact that factors may vary according to the appropriate cultural and technological framework.

Finally is proposed a new educational supply that include in its language not only concepts within the human knowledge context with themes productive, but to establish in a way intensive within their programs the themes of business cooperation, productive chains, and strategic alliances in their curricula as to offer their owners a labor market range as wide as the global context.
