Summary/Abstract: Successful universities of 2020 will be able to bring on the labor market graduates with competencies expected by employers and society, as a whole. Thus, as the pressure exerted by the representatives of the labor market is increasing, universities are forced to act in the context of the policies and strategies targeted according to social needs. Among these, a significant proportion is held by policies that are related to the involvement of higher education institutions in increasing the employability of future graduates by developing academic programs based on the development of competencies and skills necessary for the labor market. This paper presents the results of some relevant global and national studies on transversal skills expected by employers of university graduates in economics. The usefulness of this study, in terms of university management approach, is justified by the fact that skills identification represents the first stage, and a very important one, to be covered in the process of curriculum redesign.
