Abstract

The activity of coordinating course demand continues to be a theoretical and practical endeavor (Rangel, 2001) in view of the large number of tasks and responsibilities involved although it has received special attention by the academic community. This study identifies and analyzes perception, performance, autonomy and working conditions of those coordinating Administration courses in institutions of higher learning (IES) in Minas Gerais state. A sample of 34 coordinators was selected by voluntary participation. Data was collected with 21 survey questions to understand details, subtleties and complications often hidden from visits by MEC. These aspects perpetuate the technical approach to administration that is prejudicial by failing to induce students to think about and develop a capacity for assimilation and understanding of their environment thereby educating a student less capable of improving society.
