Abstract

The analysis of the match between study programmes and graduates' occupation enables determining to what extent the professional field demands the competences acquired. Within this framework, this study aims to verify the correspondence between the competences of the bachelor's degree in graphic design and the competences required in the profession. To conduct the research, the modified Delphi method was used. Two rounds were implemented successively. The sample consisted of graduates (n = 26), professionals- employers (n = 19) and academicians (n = 19). Questionnaires and a focus group were the instruments employed, which integrated transversal and specific competences of the professional profile. The instruments were validated ad hoc. The conclusions point to a high consensus, in particular among graduates and employers, regarding which competences are necessary for the training of designers. In addition, the research showed the need for a diagnostic device to achieve a better fit between academic competences and professional ones.
