Strategic Focus

The group aims to make contributions by designing economic policies that help improve the quality and conditions of life of the Colombian population. The main cause of our difficulties is the high rotation of students from undergraduate and master’s degree programs, which has resulted in a low specialization level for these professionals. Additionally, we find the lack of statistical information—inaccessible to us due to various reasons— and, finally, the University’s lack of flexibility when negotiating and executing expert advice projects.
