      This thesis aims to propose an alternative model for the management of academic knowledge in Peruvian universities, to integrate their processes and principal users. This descriptive research uses Multiple Case Study methodology in five Peruvian universities (two private and three public). To validate the data collection protocol of the Multiple Case Study, the Delphi methodology is employed, which was validated by experts in knowledge management and management of universities. As well, a Pilot Case Study is conducted at a sixth university to test the protocol in a real situation. This research generated three results. First, by analyzing the academic knowledge management models applied at the five Peruvian universities studied, it identifies three different approaches that management executes intuitively or by tradition, not systematically, and without integrating all processes and main participants. Second, the critical success factors with the greatest impact on the effective management of academic knowledge, according to the universities studied, are the following: the presence of qualified personnel, who are responsible and commited to investigation; commitment and convlction of senior management; an organizational culture that encourages the creation, sharing and use of knowledge; and the attitude and learning ability of the university staff. Third, it detects the components that measure the impact of the academic knowledge management model proposed for the Peruvian universities in tenns of the academic knowledge management stages (creation, exchange and use) and university processes (teaching and learning; research; transfer or services to the society). lt concludes that the alternative model for the academic knowledge management proposed through this research, applies to the three approaches identified in the universities that were part of the Multiple Case Study. lts basic components include planning, monitoring, management processes, principies, methods, techniques, tools and technologies, combined into a system to obtain a result whose indicators show compliance with the mission and goals of the university

      The evaluation of an investment project in the mining sector in Peru, is made the traditional way, using the method of Discounted Cash Flow (DCF), with the consequence obtain estimates of valuation not necessarily close to reality. The DCF does not take into account various opportunities that might occur in the project over time, by the following simple reason: it assumes that all estimates today, certain assumptions occur in the future. The real options method is more flexible valuation method for structuring thinking strategically and promoted to senior managerial better in the difficult task of making decisions necessary to achieve greater wealth generation. This research defines a relatively simple method of evaluating a mining project using one or more real choices and considering stochastic models metal price. A real case (a project of a mining company that invests in Peru) supported both Excel and @Risk, in order to demonstrate the positive impact on value creation (for investors) that has this methodology is presented and of course, greater than that obtained with traditional methodology. It also shows that the method of real options is a very attractive investment projects to evaluate alternative, particularly investment projects in the mining sector of our country
