The Council for Assessment, Accreditation and Quality Assurance on Superior Education (Ceaaces for its Spanish acronym) shall have until October 20, 2013 to evaluate and re-categorize 57 universities. However, the institution expects to complete the process and announce the results by the middle of the year.
Guillaume Long, president of Ceaaces, announced that it will reduce the number of college careers. “It is necessary to let people know that in Ecuador there has been an uncontrolled creation of careers with very strange names.”
“We are currently going through a process of rationalization of the number of professions within the college career denomination. The Superior Education Council (CES) will be the one to define how many will eventually remain” explain Guillaume Long.
In parallel, there will be a development on the accreditation of courses and programs, university extensions and the application of a professional qualifying examination.
