Las competencias genéricas en la educación superior. Estudio comparativo entre la opinión de empleadores y académicos

Alfonso Palmer Pol, Juan José Montaño Moreno y Maria Palou Oliver

Universidad de las Islas Baleares

Este trabajo analiza y compara la opinión de los empleadores y de los académicos respecto a la importancia que otorgan a las competencias genéricas en la formación de los titulados y el nivel adquirido en la educación superior. Para ello se ha utilizado una muestra de 500 empresas e instituciones públicas de las Islas Baleares que cuentan con titulados universitarios entre sus trabajadores y una muestra de 173 académicos pertenecientes a la Universitat de les Illes Balears. Se ha utilizado la metodología de encuestas para la recogida de datos y se han comparado los resultados descriptivos obtenidos en los dos grupos analizados. Dichos resultados ponen de manifiesto la divergencia de opinión entre ambos colectivos.

We used survey methodology to collect the data and compared the descriptive results of these two groups. These results highlight the difference of opinion of the two groups.
