In 2011 it had 121,476 undergraduate students, 9,156 teaching positions and 83 degree programs.The university has 13 academic units, two pre-college high schools, two teaching hospitals and a blood lab. Like any college, the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba aspires to excellence in its core mission: teaching, research and extension. The purpose of this paper is to make a contribution in this direction by analyzing and comparing the performance of academic units between 2007 and 2011.The study uses a nonparametric mathematical programming model, which allows to study the problem in a multiple input - multiple outputs. Variables were considered, the teachers and non-teaching positions, the number of undergraduate students, research projects and undergraduate courses offered by each academic unit. The results allow comparing the evolution of the performance of each academic unit and provide guidelines to improve the performance of inefficient units.
