    La mayor parte de la financiación universitaria en España debe de estar ligada a los objetivos y resultados de las distintas Universidades. La finalidad de este trabajo es mostrar cómo un modelo de Programación por Metas puede ser un instrumento muy útil en el proceso de análisis y toma de decisiones de las necesidades docentes de un sistema universitario, sobre todo cuando se trata de realizar una asignación eficiente de recursos financieros entre las unidades que lo componen. Concretamente, centramos nuestro estudio en los distintos Departamentos que imparten docencia en la Universidad de Valladolid (UVA). Los datos utilizados en este trabajo los hemos obtenido de la información publicada por dicha Universidad en 1998 sobre distintos aspectos de la misma, datos que nos permiten reflejar la situación real en el pasado curso académico del profesorado y de la docencia en los diferentes Departamentos que conforman la UVA. The greatest part of the university financing system in Spain must be based on the objectives and results of the different universities. The aim of this paper is to show how a Goal Programming model can be a very useful instrument in the decision–making process in a university system, specially in the case of determining the efficient resource allocation among the units that form the system. Specifically, our study is centred on the different Departments of the University of Valladolid (UVA). The data of this study are based on the information published by this University in 1998 about different aspects of it, data that aim to show the real staff and teaching situation of the last academic year in the different Departments of the UVA.
