CRUZ BAYLON, Claudia Janine. Professional competencies and academic profile in tourism and hospitality students. Revista San Gregorio [online]. 2021, vol.1, n.47, pp.48-62. ISSN 2528-7907.

Professional competencies are all the skills and knowledge that demonstrate the appropriation of psychic and practical actions acquired in each career. The objective of the study was to identify the relationship between professional competencies and the academic profile of students in the ninth cycle of the tourism and hotel management career at a private university in Lima. The study was descriptive correlational, with a transversal non-experimental design and a sample of 46 students who were administered two questionnaires under the Likert scale, validated by experts and validated by Cronbach's alpha coefficient. It was identified that the professional competencies and the academic profile of the students in the concrete performance in the area was moderately low. However, this did not affect the relationship of the variables through Spearman's Rho coefficient, demonstrating that professional competencies and academic profile are closely related. Therefore, it is necessary to adjust and renew the study plans in the area of tourism for the development of competencies and the academic profile that will make it possible to respond to problems in a creative manner and enhance the graduate's know-how, being, knowledge and coexistence in the work environment.
