In the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), official degree studies should promote the competences and knowledge of students. This work is based on active strategies (conceptual maps and discussion panels) where students analyse and summarize the topics proposed in class, to improve their knowledge and skills. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to analyse the performance of business students by using the mentioned strategies in two different groups during the academic year 2018-2019. The implementation of this research was carried out using a quantitative approach, with mixed models (SPSS v20 software) of three dependent variables (two of knowledge and one for competences). The conclusions indicate that the group that used the panel discussion methodology increases more the acquired competences and the understanding of the basic concepts that are taught on the subject, than the group of the conceptual maps strategy.
