Abstract

This study introduces a method to measure the implementation of the training strategy of entrepreneurship competence as a contribution to the integrity and quality of future graduates from any higher education institutions. For this purpose, the theory of plithogenic sets was applied. These sets were defined to model concepts arising from the dynamic interaction of other simpler ones, which may have contradictions among each other and include neutralities or indeterminacies. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that plithogenic sets are applied in the mathematical modeling of entrepreneurship competence or any other pedagogic competence. The plithogenic numbers are represented and applied to SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis. This method was successfully applied at the University of Guayaquil, Ecuador. It is a simple method that includes an assessment based on linguistic terms and indeterminacies.
