Interest in improving the quality of academic processes in distinct levels of education has constituted the central axis of educational politics of Mexico in the last decades. In this context, and with the need to form ethical professionals who are socially responsible and know how to confront the challenges of working in their field in the best manner possible, the School of Accounting and Administrative Sciences of the Universidad Michoacan de San Nicolas de Hidalgo (UMSNH) has initiated a process of revision and actualization of its study plans with a focus oriented towards competencies and standards. This document presents a methodological guide for designing assigned subjects and programs, and study plans with formative modules through the use of a Final Format, which serves as an analytical tool for the construction and didactic conversion implicated in a revision of school programs. This paper describes the school's transition and advance through different stages of curricular design, from the needs evaluation and diagnosis up to the proposal of the final format, represented in a methodological guide for any other study plan for any other school that finds itself in the same process.
