This thesis aims to analyse if the Brazilian higher education system in agribusiness is offering appropriate development according to the needs of a series of sectors that outline the national agroindustrial companies. In order to achieve the designed objectives in this research, this study was developed in four subjects. The first subject is related to search the professional profile that has being requested by several agents of the national agribusiness. The second concerns about the identification and characterization of the knowledge and skills that have been mainly transmitted through the university degrees in the agribusiness field in Brazil. The third subject aims to compare the requested profile demanded versus the current academic profile proposed in the investigated university degrees in order to identify the professionals that are not in line with the market demands of our system in relation to the needs of many evaluated segments and more specifically pointing to the knowledge groups and abilities that are more necessary to be provided in the programs that are not regulated to the current requirements. After these steps it was verified that the biggest part of this problem was related to the skills and knowledge in communication as well as the interpersonal skills, which are the major concern of the companies, but are hardly stimulated in the evaluated programs. Thus, aiming to stimulate theses skills and expertise in the undergraduates we propose achievements through the concept of competence on the Brazilian higher education in agribusiness area. For that reason the fourth subject of this research can be validated by this case study done in three different courses in the Wageningen University in the Netherlands, in order to better understand how the competence-based profiles are currently being developed leading the syllabuses in Dutch higher education in the sense of supporting the undergraduate professionals concerned to the agro industrial market requirements. It is true that is not sufficient for the new generation of professionals in this area to be experts in several different areas of the knowledge. It is important to prepare professionals who are able to respond to the actual demand of the Brazilian agro industrial market, and that are able to solve different problems in their areas making efforts to reduce the differences between the greater number of unemployed highly educated professionals and the lack of qualified professionals in companies.
