The fact that in Mexico a large part of the population has access to higher education institutions, both public and private, does not indicate that the students are going to have the opportunity of developing the knowledge acquired in the university. Unemployment is often present; therefore their hopes to get a better life are diminished. Nowadays, students have a college degree, but they do not have any place to work. What is worse is that they cannot go back to their place of origin, because they are not accustomed to the former life or any other profession that they would have probably exercised if they had not lived in the city, causing underemployment. The higher education system in Puebla shows a high efficiency to cover the requirements of skilled labour of the economy, but it is not its duty to improve the performance of the economic and political institutions in order to reach an efficient and dynamic economy. It is worth mentioning that urgent actions are required to improve social conditions, as part of an integral strategy, which will allow the Mexican economy to increase the competitiveness of the companies, and thus achieve a greater job demand.
