  • The shortage of individuals with the abilities to perform a job position successfully demands innovative educational approaches. Competency Based Education (CBE) is a methodology that focuses on endowing students with the skills demanded by the industries and evaluates them regarding what they are able to do. A bank of competencies that students must acquire in a university academic program was discussed. Occupational trends as well as associated skills demands were detected. This research could be a source of practical knowledge for those organizations seeking to understand CBE foundations and for those wishing to initiate their path through this global educational trend.
