After analyzing the importance of university higher education, its impact on the development of countries and the conflicts that generate the balance between self-regulation, supported by university autonomy and external regulation, it is evident that, by a reality or an excuse, the lack of quality of the training processes, and the lack of coherence with the labor market, ends up being the way that governments have the option of increasing external regulation. This is evident in the reality of Peru's university education system and in its accreditation processes. Through a comparative analysis with the experience of other countries with more mature accreditation models, it can be identified three differentiating elements: (i) the evaluation of the research, (ii) the implementation of management systems that ensure the quality of the educational institution, and (iii) the training of external evaluators, on which work strategies are established in the accreditation standards and in the peer evaluators training programs. At the end, the problem is framed at the time of the Covid-19 pandemic.
