The research analyzes the graduate profiles of pedagogical careers belonging to the universities of the Valparaíso region, Chile. For this purpose, a metrically consistent instrument has been proposed and created, according to the main Education Policies of the country that is called as an integral profile, which includes aspects with which Chilean teachers are evaluated, plus indicators of inclusion and citizen education. These Policies are not always measured, that’s why universities give such importance to these three educational policies. For these reasons, the objective of this article is to analyze, based on quantitative techniques, the relation of similarity between graduation profiles and educational policies, contributing to empower the descended aspects and to visualize the importance that the universities grant to train students with an integral profile. The results of this research invite to promote the Educational Policies related to the exit profiles of the pedagogical careers, since having integral profiles contributes to form a model of teacher training for the country, especially in those with emerging economies, such as those of Latin America.
