Abstract
Dropout and graduation from undergraduate students were associated with the socioeconomic context, academic performance and characteristics of the educational institutions. In this paper, we did a characterization of dropout and graduation of students from programs related to economics in Colombia. We estimated a multinomial logit regression to measure marginal effects from a set of individual, familiar, institutional and context factors on dropout and graduation probabilities of Colombian economics students during the 1998 to 2015 time period.
