Having in mind that the universities are linked to the tourism sector through training and developing human capital, the objective of this research was to know the perception students in the major of tourism have towards the competences acquired and their relationship with the labor market of three universities in the state of Puebla. The study was transversal and a survey was applied to 111 students from the two public universities and a private one. In the studied universities the competences developed were in the area of knowledge about tourism, attention to the clients, and teamwork. It was found, however, that it is necessary to strengthen competences in ITC, organization of events, quality in tourism and the use of English language. Even so it can be concluded that the competences acquired by the students interviewed for this study satisfied the requirements of the labor field they should reach.
