RODRIGUEZ PONCE, Emilio. Higher education in Chile and the role of the market: guilty or innocent? . Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.1, pp.126-135. ISSN 0718-3305.

The following article analyzes the deficiencies of the current Chilean system of higher education and the crisis that it is, indicating that the success of this one can not measure up for the economic results that this one can generate, but by the permanent internal labor of his actors and his contribution to society. Firstly, it is analyzed the discharge of private institution along with the slightly demanding standards of quality of those have not assured the excellence and have allowed that someone operates with evident profit making. Subsequently, the financing system running, his paradoxes and the lack of regulation are analyzed. Finally, this raises unavoidable questions about the liberty of choosing where to study, the generation of valuable goods to society and the insufficiency of coverage levels, quality and equity of the higher education model. With the previous thing, it can conclude that the system shows an increasing coverage but does not show the situation that arises inside, with high levels of desertion, excessive duration of the studies, lack of equity in the access and the loss of credibility in the institutional quality. But it is impossible to think that the market by his own, is the responsible entity of give solution to the presented reflections about socioeconomic condition of the students, standardization of the costs of the education, of resources mobility in the system, cost of transfer of the user and asymmetry of the information at once to take decisions related with higher education.

Palabras clave : Discharge system; private institutions; accreditation; standards of excellence; profit; financing system; coverage; quality and equity of the Chilean model of higher education.
