Abstract: The level of competencies that university and college students gain during their studies predetermine their employment in the labour market and their capabilities for their further development. In today's highly competitive environment, organisations are interested in graduates who have highly developed primarily soft competencies and at the same time have growth potential. The survey focuses on the identification of transferable cross-sectional competencies and their measurement among students of the private university of economics. This article aims to identify transferable cross-sectional competencies of university students that contribute most to the graduate's success in the labour market and to summarise the approach to identify tasks for the development of the educational program of the private university of economics. Chi-square tests were applied to determine the dependencies, and the data were also evaluated by factor analysis to find hidden factors. Four factors were identified, namely, appropriate communication style, complexity and self-management, performance individualism, and socially desirable behaviour.
