Two instruments to measure perceptions of the dual model in entrepreneurs and graduates: A Colombian perspective

Keywords: dual education, entrepreneurs, graduates, measurement instrument, perceptions

Abstract

Two instruments are proposed to survey the perceptions of the dual model of entrepreneurs and Uniempresarial graduates. The design and validation of these instruments were conceived as a methodological tool for the study and improvement of the model, in a Latin American context. The results show that these perceptions enable the understanding of the model’s educational impact, as an option for bridging gaps between the academy and business. It is concluded that the instrument is a valuable tool to evaluate the entrepreneurs’ perceptions of how dual education contributes to attaining the required human talent, and the perceptions of graduates on the relevance of their training and the benefits and the advantages it affords to enter the business sector. These measurement instruments could be useful for new and comparative studies that lead to relevant conclusions to improve the dual model and redound in the learning of trainees.
