The continuous education, that the productive sector demands, is not only the accumulation of new knowledge, supported in the education-learning process, but also a focus on the new tendencies that the labor field demands, where the universities have the opportunity to extend their involvement, through graduations or specializations, that contribute the strength of the acquired skills in the classroom. The objective is to know the kind of graduation interests that motivate the graduates, as a process of continuous education. The study is based on the application of a questionnaire to 50 students of different degrees from public universities in Sonora, whose excellent results are: 51% of those surveyed, indicate that at the end of their degree they do not obtain the tools to compete in their labor field. 92% of the students mention that universities should offer within the educative program some area of financial or specialization, related to other disciplines. Another important data is that the financial areas that graduates prefer are related to the social administrative and financial areas and in smaller proportion they prefer the engineering disciplines. 70% of those surveyed, indicate that universities have infrastructure, learning spaces and the skilled human resources to offer this type of courses. The conclusion of this work, is that public universities follow training programs related to certain areas and disciplines, centered on the student and learning, like part of their formation, but they do not have the educative flexibility and the graduates will need to know other disciplines to complement their professional education.
