Reflections on the training of postgraduate students, and the consistency
between training processes and objectives
Abstract. In different countries, postgraduate training has focused on training processes, being a requirement for
both advisors and students. The pressure from evaluating, accrediting and financing agencies focuses on
quantitative results, downplaying the importance of evaluating the results of training, which should be the focus
for any postgraduate program. The article proposes re-discussing and redefining which are the processes that lead
to better training according to the objectives that arise in postgraduate training and focus them on the training
needs of each student. For this, it is necessary to place a solid emphasis on the evaluation processes of those in
charge of student training, and redesign training strategies that are adjusted, adequate and focused on each
student's individual training processes, not on the bureaucratic requirements. For this reason, some reflections are
proposed on the objectives to be achieved with postgraduate training, both from the institutions and postgraduate
programs as well as from the institutions that set evaluation criteria for postgraduate programs.
