Cuanto vale Estudiar un Postgrado en America Latina? (How Much do Post-Graduate Studies Cost in Latin America?).
Franco Arbelaez, Augusto
This study, conducted by the Panamerican Association of Educational Credit Institutions (APICE), examined the cost of graduate education in nine Latin American countries. The study was intended to promote graduate and educational exchange within the region, as opposed to exchanges between Latin America and the United States or Europe. Institutions in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Uruguay, and Venezuela were surveyed concerning the costs of tuition, housing, meals, and other expenses. The study found costs to be relatively low in Ecuador and Venezuela, and relatively high in Brazil. Comparisons with representative institutions in the United States and Europe were also made. The bulk of the report is in Spanish, with the introduction and conclusion in both Spanish and English. (MDM)
