This article intends to bring about a discussion of higher education, starting with an analysis of the fast growing number of institutions and courses offering a graduation in Administration in the Southwest Region of Paraná State. So far, it is based on a discussion and on the Reform of Education in Brazil. It points up the expansion of higher education, with data about the institutions of the region and more particularly about the graduation in Administration courses. The study was based on secondary resources, and by collecting basic data from the involved institutions, with questionnaire forms. All the institutions of higher education applying courses in the Southwest Region of Paraná in 2002 were surveyed. The information gathered showed an increase of 300% in the number of institutions of higher education in the Southwest of the State, something admirable for a region which has been having a remarkable decrease in population in the past decades. Finally, the report ponders whether, in what concerns quality, there has been advantages for the educational system as a whole or if there was a low leveling, with the sanction of the higher education market law.
