Abstract: The issue of the paper is economy and management students' competences seen in two aspects – their meaning in the future job and level gained during studies. The empirical material was gathered on the basis of research conducted in the years 2009-2010 by the method of diagnostic survey. The respondents were 5th year students of 3 higher education public institutions: The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University and Technical University of Lublin. The analysis of the study results revealed that in case of all the examined competences the students assessed significantly higher their role in their future professional career, compared to the level reached by them at university. In case of the four groups of competences distinguished for the purpose of our study the ranking of their significance at work corresponded, in students' opinion, with the ranking of the level concerning the competences acquired by them. It can be thus concluded that the respondents were acting rationally. During their study they were developing in the first place such competences which they regarded as the most vital for their future professional career.
