Port companies require employees characterized by specific professional competencies and at the same time – by general, i.e. social and personal ones. The European higher education system in terms of the Bologna Process should provide opportunities for students to develop their professional competencies needed. The scientific content of a competency usually includes knowledge, abilities, skills and attitudes in relation to the documents of the Bologna Process and national legislation. The goal of the research is to characterize the need for the competencies required by port economists, technologists and stevedores by assessing both – the need for professional competencies required by port terminal employees, and the importance of personal and social competencies required by port terminal employees. This is a pilot study. It allows to prepare for the future complex diagnostic study of the competencies required by Klaipeda State Seaport employees.
