The Future of Mexican Higher Education
Promoting Quality and Equity
This review of higher education policy in Mexico was requested by the Mexican Ministry
of Education to take stock of progress since the last OECD review of the higher education
system in Mexico, published in 2008, and to support development of the new government’s
National Development Plan and Sectoral Education Programme.
The report examines the state of the higher education sector in Mexico and analyses
key policies implemented by the federal and state governments. It assesses national
governance and co-operation structures that help to guide the higher education system,
and the relevance of existing national strategies. It also looks at public funding
of higher education institutions, how the quality of higher education programmes is
assured; and the extent to which the higher education system contributes to equity.
The report concludes by exploring two key sectors of higher education: teacher education
colleges and professional and technical institutions.
A companion volume focusing on the labour market relevance and outcomes of higher
education is also available: Higher Education in Mexico: Labour Market Relevance and
