Abstract

The importance of higher education in Mexico is appreciated by presenting 4,705,400 students enrolled in that level in the 2018-2019 school year, out of this total 3,943,544 students were enrolled in the schooled mode (83.8% of all students) and 761,856 students were in the non-schooled modality. (16.2% of all students). Of the total students at the top level of the country 64.6% studied at public universities and 35.4% in private universities. By federal entity, Mexico City, the State of Mexico, Puebla, Nuevo León and Jalisco absorb 45.1% of the country's 4.7 million higher education students at all levels and modalities. At the top level of the non-schooled modality, 265,829 pupils attended public schools (34.9%) and to private schools 496,027 pupils (65.1%) 2018-2019. This is where the importance of studying private universities and especially those that offer out-of-school (online) programs arises. The ten private universities that have the most students in non-school mode in Mexico are: University Inter-American for Development (UNID), Universidad Technological de Mexico (UNITEC), Teaching and Higher Research (Tec Milenio), Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM), Universidad Technological Latinoamericana Online (UTEL), Universidad Latinoamericana (ULA), Institute de Studios Universitarios (IEU), Universidad Insurgentes, Center for Higher Studies of Legal and Criminal Sciences (CESCIJUC) and Tangamanga University. These ten universities have 186,030 students enrolled in the 2019-2020 school year in the non-schooled mode (24% of this modality). The Secretary of Public Education's educational expenditure at the top level of the 2019-2020 school year is 85,400 pesos per student, while at UNAM his educational spending in 2020 is 78,108 pesos. Surely the high spending compared to private universities is because these two institutions have little higher-level offer online and the costs are much higher in school mode, and as public institutions they have higher and better wage benefits than private schools in Mexico
