Abstract

Se analizan diferentes alternativas para la financiación de la educación superior, teniendo en cuenta que la presencia de fallas de mercado -tanto por el lado de la demanda como por el de la oferta- hace de éste un sector muy particular. Las primeras se relacionan con las decisiones privadas en términos de educación de la población estudiantil, y las segundas con las asimetrías de información que caracterizan el lado de la oferta en el financiamiento de la educación. El documento hace una revisión de literatura académica y de algunas experiencias internacionales sobre las diferentes fuentes de financiación en este sector, así como sus potenciales efectos sobre ciertas variables. Así, esta revisión arroja luces sobre las alternativas para el caso Colombiano. ******************************************************************************************************** This document analyzes different options in higher education funding, through the study of the market failures –by the demand and the supply side– that make this sector a particular one. We study some financing sources such as public funding, upfront charges, bank loans, income contingent loans, graduate taxes, among others. Besides, we review some international experiences in higher education funding that could shed some light on the Colombian case, taking into account the potential effects of different financing sources on efficiency, equity and variables such as consumption.
