A Trajetória dos Estudantes de Pós-Graduação Stricto Sensu no Brasil: atrito e tempo para conclusão nos cursos de mestrado e doutorado

Colombo, Daniel Gama e;

Artigo completo:

Este artigo apresenta um primeiro esforço de investigar a taxa de atrito e tempo para conclusão nos cursos de mestrado e doutorado no país. Para isso, é apresentado um conjunto inicial de estatísticas descritivas, com base em microdados identificados dos estudantes. A taxa de atrito média nos dois níveis encontra-se em torno de 12%. A maior parte dos alunos titulados no mestrado concluí o curso até o fim do terceiro, enquanto no doutorado isso ocorre até o fim do quinto ano. A proporção de alunos que abandonam ou são desligados tende a aumentar com o tempo no curso, sendo ainda observada uma taxa de atrito inferior para mulheres, alunos mais jovens e estudantes de instituições públicas. Não foram encontrados indícios de que o tempo para conclusão possa estar relacionado ao sexo, à idade dos estudantes e à natureza jurídica das instituições de ensino.
