The article provides a theoretical approach to the staff’s job qualifications and competence, and the competitive position of enterprises. Based on empirical research, an analysis was performed of the correlation between the competitive position of enterprises and the top management’s qualifications, and between the competitive posi- tion and the top managers’ competence in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The research results show how the competitive position of enterprises depends on the level of the top managers’ educational background and on the level of particular types of their competence.
