Education system and the teacher are ascribed a vital role in the knowledge society. Learning and education outcomes greatly depend on the teacher’s qualifications, motivation and personality features. In accordance with the idea of making academic studies more practical, teachers’ entrepreneurial competences gain more and more significance. The role of the teacher in market economy is frequently associated with the organisation of educational process (learning), becoming a natural leader and developer of an attractive educational offer. The paper discusses physical education teachers’ managerial competences. In order to evaluate the level of these competences, surveys were conducted among physical education graduate students majoring in PE teaching. The analysis encompassed several skills recognised as characteristic for entrepreneurial competences of university graduates. It was stipulated that the level of managerial competences acquired in the course of studies deviates considerably from the expected one.
