Find out which are the most and least efficient degrees in Argentine

Private universities are more effective at graduation because in public universities only 25.5% is received on time

Argentinian university students are among the slowest to finish their studies. "The effectiveness of university graduation in Argentina, both in public and private universities, is lower than in other Latin American countries, such as Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Cuba," explained the Director of the Center for Studies in Education in Argentina, Alieto Guadagni, in a report published last June 2016.

Statistics show that only one in four students manages to finish their undergraduate degree in public universities. That is, the state universities have an efficiency in graduation of 25.5% while this indicator amounts to 42.9% in private universities.

According to data from the National University of La Plata, students take an average of 8 years to complete a university degree. Above that average are the careers of Architecture (9,83), Agronomy (10,68), Medicine (10,21), Veterinary (10,12) and Journalism (10,05).

Law and Economics are the two most chosen careers in the country. They are the most numerous in both state and private universities and are the ones that have more graduates as well. "One in three university graduates is a lawyer or a graduate in economics and administration," said Guadagni in this report prepared by the Center for Studies in Education in Argentina (CEA), entitled "The University Graduation in Argentina." In private universities, graduation in these two careers represents 39% of the total, while in state universities this proportion drops to 31%.

Likewise, for every 100 lawyers graduates 31 engineers and for each 100 graduates in Economics and Administration do 10 in Agricultural Sciences.

Although the greatest number of students and graduates corresponds to Economics and Administration, there are large differences in the efficiency of graduation by type of university, since in private schools it corresponds to 44.6%, while in public schools it is reduced to 24, 5%.

At the state universities, 10 graduates are graduated in Economics and Administration for each bachelor in Biology, and graduated 2.4 lawyers for each engineer. These differences are even greater in private universities, where 46 graduates in Economics and Administration graduate each biology degree and 20 lawyers graduate each engineer.

The most effective degrees of graduation are Political Science, International Relations and Diplomacy, Medicine, Law, Industries, and Economics and Administration; With a total graduation efficiency greater than 30%. Meanwhile, among the disciplines that are less effective in the graduation process are: Computer Science, Biochemistry and Pharmacy, Sociology, Anthropology and Social Service, Biology, and Engineering; With a total graduation efficiency of less than 25%.

Political Sciences and International Relations and Diplomacy are the careers that have in the state sector an efficiency in graduation higher than in the private sector. In all other disciplines, privately run universities have a higher graduation rate than in state-run universities. The race with less efficiency in the graduation is Computer science, since they graduate only 16 of each 100 people who enter the state universities and 30 of each 100, in the private ones.

Half of Argentine youth between the ages of 14 and 24 are dedicated to study. There are 10.6% of young people who study and work, and for this reason, many times, they are delayed in the graduation periods.
