Abstract: The correlation between academic curricula and labor market requirements is a key issue of modern education and a primary pillar of the Bologna process. Romanian universities have adjusted in the last decade or so their curricula and academic offer to the labor market needs. Recently, the field of Project Management has gained more prominence in the Romanian labor market, which makes one enquire about the academic preparation that Master students get in this area of study. Our research aims at shedding light on the way competences, abilities and academic curricula in Economics specializations are related to the Romanian labor market needs, with a focus in the field of Project Management. We are conducting a survey among Master students of two renowned Romanian universities - Bucharest University of Economic Studies and Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu. A number of two samples of students will be selected to conduct the survey, one for each university. The students and all enrolled in Master program with a specialization in Economics. Our study is useful for both academics and labor market, as interested bodies from both sides might learn more about the perception of future graduates on the academic program they follow and the competences and abilities they gain, on one hand, and on the labor market realities in terms of requirements for future employees, on the other hand.
