NAVA-ROGEL, Rosa María y MERCADO-SALGADO, Patricia. An Analysis of the Trajectory of Intellectual Capital in a Mexican Public University. REDIE [online]. 2011, vol.13, n.2, pp. 166-187. ISSN 1607-4041.
Although knowledge contributes to the creation of intellectual capital, and there are studies to measure it in European universities, in México little has been generated on the subject. The aim of this paper is to propose a model constructed on the basis of an analysis of trajectories of intellectual capital at a Mexican public university, with the goal of demonstrating that the element which most strongly influences it is the human capital devoted to teaching. We reviewed previous research, observed the correlations between the components of intellectual capital, and developed the model. We obtained evidence to determine that the human capital devoted to teaching influences the human capital devoted to research, as well as the structural capital, and to a lesser degree, the relational capital.
