EARN CREDITS AND A DEGREE BY PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT & EXAMINATIONS

Master of the University | Doctor of the University

The prior learning assessment grado propio programmes of Universidad Azteca are ideal for qualified professionals earning a university degree based on their qualifications, licenses, skills and experience and who do not need an accredited or recognised degree rather than a university own degree awarded by a recognised university to demonstrate their individual level of education in a given area or field of expertise. A grado propio or university own degree reflects that the graduate has earned a degree at postsecondary education level awarded by an officially recognised university.

The university own degrees are not to be confused with the officially recognised programmes and degrees with RVOE offered by Universidad Azteca or with the official dual-degree inter-university programmes validated by UCN and can be earned via the following ways:

What is a GRADO PROPIO ?

Título propio degrees are awarded by the University sui generis and, in case of Universidad Azteca, based on Article 59 of the General Law of Education.

University own degrees are, therefore, legally awarded by the respective university, despite, they lack official recognition, they may be recognised as professional specialisations by Professional, Regulatory and Statutory Bodies and Guilds, as well as individual employers. Some university own degrees may also be accepted for credit transfer to official study programmes (e.g. in Austria, or DEA in Spain). Some university own degrees are recognised for regulated professions (e.g. MBA in Austria for Unternehmensberater or licensed Management Consultants), others like the DEA in Spain and France qualify for admission to doctoral research without further coursework.

In either case, a título propio or university own degree reflects that the graduate has earned a degree at postsecondary education level awarded by an officially recognised university.

Universidad Azteca has developed a professional and academic certification programme and awards the following título propio degrees to persons meeting the corresponding degree requirements:

Bachelor of the University in Business Administration, Advanced Studies, Professional Studies, Individual Studies.

GRADO PROPIO PROGRAMMES

Título propio or Grado propio or University-own degree programmes are a common academic and professional offer of numerous universities worldwide and are based on the respective applicable study laws. They are regulated in Austria as “Universitätslehrgänge”, “Fachhochschullehrgänge”, “Hochschullehrgänge”, in Italy, Spain (Arto. 34 Ley Organica de Universidades) and France they are known as “own degrees”, to name but a few.

The Mexican Constitution and the General Law of Education (Ley General de Educación) allow a private Institution of Higher Education (IES particular) to offer programmes with RVOE, Reconocimiento de Validez Oficial de Estudios or Official Recognition of the Validity of Studies, which is a programmatic accreditation, and also entitling recognised private universities to offer programmes and award degrees without programmatic accreditation in accordance with Article 59 of the General Law of Education.

For more information on the programmes with or without RVOE, please, read the information provided by the Secretary of Public Education in Mexico.

The regulatory authority SEP has confirmed to the Rector of Universidad Azteca, that Universidad Azteca is entitled to offer national and international programmes without RVOE and award university own degrees, however, students need to be made fully aware of this circumstance:

En este orden de ideas, se desprende lo siguiente:

Que no existe impedimento legal alguno para que la Universidad Azteca referida, pueda impartir estudios de tipo superior sin reconocimiento de validez oficial, y los Títulos, Diplomas o Grados correspondientes que expida, serán títulos propios sin valor oficial, sin embargo, deberá de hacer del conocimiento tal circunstancia a los usuarios, así como también mencionarlo en su documentación y publicidad que utilice, tal como lo establece el artículo 59 de la Ley General de Educación, que para mejor y pronta referencia a continuación se transcribe:

Artículo 59.- Los particulares que presten servicios por los que se impartan estudios sin reconocimiento de validez oficial, deberán mencionarlo en su correspondiente documentación y publicidad.

De igual forma, me permito comunicarle que no hay impedimento legal alguno por parte de las leyes mexicanas para que la Universidad Azteca que nos ocupa, pueda impartir educación de tipo superior en territorio extranjero, sin embargo su operación deberá ajustarse a las leyes del país donde pretenda impartir estudios, (…)

Por otra parte, cabe mencionar que de conformidad con lineamiento 21 del citado Acuerdo, para el caso de intercambios académicos, no se requiere de un trámite de revalidación ante esta autoridad, ya que cuando un programa académico que forma parte del sistema educativo nacional, permita que de manera expresa los estudiantes realicen determinadas actividades de aprendizaje, asignaturas o unidades de aprendizaje en un programa académico distinto, bien de una misma institución educativa o de otras ubicadas en territorio nacional o en el extranjero, siempre y cuando esa circunstancia se encuentre definida en el plan y programas de estudio con Reconocimiento de Validez Oficial de Estudios y así mismo se encuentre prevista en la reglamentación interna de la institución educativa que imparte dicho plan y programas de estudio, quien asentará los resultados de la evaluación correspondiente en los certificados de estudios.

Lic. Luis Alberto Navarro Acosta, Subdirector de Control Escolar, SEP

The new strategic focus of Universidad Azteca is on programmatic accreditation of university own programmes offered internationally:

TRACCERT is a member of AAAC Association of Accrediting Agencies of Canada and a registered Accreditation and Certification Body with the Government of Canada.
