Abstract


Competency-based learning allows students to acquire knowledge, learn procedures and develop attitudes necessary for their employability. The aim of this article is to reflect on the current role of the University and its relations with its environment (government, business and society) and present an action plan to promote the employability of university students as an essential instrument of university policy. A qualitative methodology is used to explore, investigate and analyze the structure of the university and obtain information about the perception of the heads of the different units of government in terms of employability. Based on the information collected, the employability plan is drawn up, grouped into four programs that involve teaching, research, management and public administration, with their respective instruments of action; these programs must be managed by the different actors and their respective areas of government.
