Abstract

What is the purpose of postgraduate higher education in today’s world? Massification has made these degrees more available in industrialized countries as part of a paradigm shift within the knowledge society.Masters and doctoral degrees have traditionally been part of what Maturana and Valera (1980) and later Luhmann (1995) indicated as part of organizational reproduction (autopoiesis). In an era of reduced government funding and rising operational costs, fewer academic positions – especially full-time academic positions – are available as academic retire. On the other hand, the socioeconomic need to increase national and personal intellectual capital in a knowledge-driven world does provide impetus for these higher degrees to meet job flow (“the gross creation and destruction of jobs, reflecting the expansion and contraction of establishments”–Burgesset al. 2000, p. 474) demands in the economy
