Introduction

This report summarises the results of the Competence Survey undertaken in 2010 to detect

room for improvement in the partaking institutions of higher education regarding the

development of their curriculum. Within the Competence project graduates and employers of

alumni of 8 degree programme:

IIM,

Postgraduate IIM,

Hotel Management,

Tourism,

Ceramic engineering,

Psychology,

Mechanical Engineering

in 4 countries:

Macedonia,

Montenegro,

Bosnia & Herzegovina and

were interviewed to collect data about competences that graduates have gathered during

their studies and competences demanded and required by the industries addressed in the

respective degree programmes. The questionnaire was separated into 6 different sections

which were:
