Abstract

Higher education has been facing great challenges in order to build and / or optimize learning environments that enable students to better suit labor market expectations. The relationship between scientific and technical knowledge and soft skills has a determinant role in a professional performance of excellence. To attend these requirements, the School of Economics and Management at Catholic University of Portugal has developed an approach distinguished by the OECD in 2010 as a best practice of curriculum innovation and skills' development. The Strategic Leadership Hub develops intervention at three levels: 1. coaching and mentoring with students, 2. cooperation with teachers, and 3. approach to the labor market. This article presents some results regarding students' attendance and satisfaction with the intervention processes, soft skills' development and employability rates.
