UNESCO recommends that university careers in Argentina should be shorter
“It is surprising that in developed countries three years are enough to get a degree and in Argentina five”, said Francesc Pedró, director of UNESCO’s International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America, to Clarín.
He said this in an interview with this newspaper within the framework of the International Congress on Educational Innovation held in Monterrey, Mexico.
Pedró is a specialist in comparative education (between different countries), author of several books and with a long experience in university policies. Of Catalan origin, he arrived at Unesco 20 years ago after his time at the OECD. Since 2019 he has headed the area of higher education in that organization.
