Abstract

Este trabajo analiza el problema de la deserción estudiantil en la Facultad de Economía de laUniversidad del Rosario, a través del estudio de los factores individuales, académicos ysocioeconómicos sobre el riesgo de desertar. Para esto se utiliza el análisis de modelos de duración.Específicamente, se estima un modelo de riesgo proporcional de tiempo discreto con y sinheterogeneidad observada ((Prentice-Gloeckler, 1978 y Meyer, 1980). Los resultados muestran que losestudiantes de sexo masculino, la vinculación de los estudiantes al mercado laboral y los estudiantesprovenientes de otras regiones, tienen mayor riesgo de deserción. Además, la edad del estudianteincrementa el riesgo, sin embargo su efecto decrece marginalmente al aumentar la edad.********************************************************************************************************This paper analyzes the determinants of the student´s drop-out in the Department of Economics at theUniversidad del Rosario, throughout the study of the individual, academic, and socioeconomicbackground over the desertion risk. In this analysis a duration model is performed with the aim offinding those factors. Specifically, a proportional hazard model is estimated in discrete time with andwithout observed heterogeneity (Prentice-Gloeckler, 1978 and Meyer, 1980). The results show thatmale students, students participating within the labor market, and students from other regions have ahigher risk of drop-out. Furthermore, the older the student, the highest the risk of deserting; howeverthis effect behaves marginally decreasing.
