This work demonstrates how the curricular design processes at a graduate level, that is to say the one aimed to the academic offer leading to a third level professional degree, are positively affected when adapting and implementing agile methodologies that are generally applied to software product design process. This represents a considerable reduction of time and the sequential effectiveness of the process. The study considers 712 undergraduate programs from 30 higher education institutions in Ecuador that, based on the applicable legislation, had to re-design their entire academic offer within a set period. As a fundamental contribution, the methodological model of agile curricular design adopted by the Politécnica Salesiana University from Ecuador is described, whose results show that 96% of their careers achieved this goal in the established period, higher than the average effectiveness rate of other Higher Educations Institutions, which was 69.85%.
