    The present paper aims to explore the field of adult education and competence development in university settings. An ICT-based tool was used to assess three successive target groups of professionals considered adult students. Our results have a research and practical series of implications. Individuals gain self-knowledge and perception in terms of present and future competences; furthermore, the process of self-analysis could be initiated. Group level results are important for teachers and educators helping them towards a student-centred teaching/learning initiative, putting emphasis on the issue and managing diversity. Educational management can improve the quality of teaching and design a competitive path through differentiation.
