Summary/Abstract: The university is a field of professional and human training and development for all those involved in the process, and its quality is closely correlated with the new learning technologies. Initially regarded only as mere auxiliaries of the didactic process, as levers for streamlining the instructive-educational process from all perspectives, they have nowadays become responsible for a new type of learning and academic management as well as for the entire reconstruction of the relation with the labor market. In the knowledge society there is no longer the question of whether the new technologies should be used but how, where and for what activity should they be applied with maximum performance. It is important that higher education institutions should provide students with the possibility of developing a solid set of transversal key-competences (the digital competence being one of them). The study that we propose started from the finding that there is, compulsorily and logically, a close connection between the quality of academic teaching, the level of graduates’ competences (implicitly meaning the contribution of the academic program to the forming of competences) and the level of competences required for graduates by the type of activity that they carry after graduation. If there is no doubt concerning these close correlations, our interest has been that of identifying to what extent these significant correlations between two or more of the 4 variables may exist.
