PERALES MEJIA, Felipe de Jesús. Estudio de egresados en un programa de posgrado en educación. Alteridad [online]. 2020, vol.15, n.2, pp.256-269. ISSN 1390-8642.

At the present time, when many changes take part in different aspects of our lives and access to information and knowledge is at the palm of our hands, there is also a greater demand worldwide on the educational institutions to modify their education programs according to the specific social, economic, political and cultural needs. For the purpose of continuing to investigate the studies about graduates, we present the results of a research carried out during a postgraduate programme in a public institution in the Mexican state of Coahuila. The research was conducted with the involvement of the graduates belonging to twelve different generations. This is a qualitative research due to the descriptive information that it presents about the meaning and sense of the programme. Through a formulary of the Likert type with 20 items, the profile of graduation and the curricular axes are described among other aspects of the curriculum development. Some of the results show that there were more women participating and that the perception of the graduates indicates the programme is accepted in 90% of the cases, which represents an opportunity for job promotions and being able to continue their academic education. Furthermore, areas of opportunity were identified together with areas in the curriculum that need improvement in order to continue looking for all those strategies that will allow a high standard and equity formation.
