Abstract: The purpose of the study was to identify the perceptions of university professors regarding how universities respond to students' expectations and needs, for a better inclusion of such graduates in the labor market. In-depth interviews with representatives of the relevant stakeholders (teaching staff from the main fields of study analyzed (Letters, Foreign languages, Social Sciences etc.) were performed, based on a semi-structured interview guide. The results identify the main changes in the evolution of students as a result of digitization, as well as means of adapting to changes in the labor market employed by teachers. The directions outlined as a result of the content analysis represent satisfactory elements in the employed research approach, and can also represent starting points for future studies, of either qualitative or quantitative nature.
