BRAVO GUERRERO, Fabián Eugenio; ILLESCAS-PENA, Lourdes  and  PENA ORTEGA, Mario Patricio. Academic Career of University Students. Podium [online]. 2020, n.37, pp.27-42. ISSN 2588-0969.

Although the careers have a curriculum planning, in practice the student takes some additional time to complete his program. In some careers, this delay can be excessive, implying delays and the loss of resources for the student and the institution. This research was carried out with a cohort that began in March 2013 and ended in July 2018, with the aim of longitudinally analyzing the academic progress of the students, and evidencing the gap between the ideal progress and the real progress in each period, and Thus, to define optimization policies for educational management. A faculty was found where its students took 46.6% more than the ideal term; Additionally, those students, whose parents are professionals or who hold high positions, have academic progress that is statistically superior to others.

Keywords : Academic progress; duration of studies; socioeconomic variables; higher education; university student; Dropout.
