Some higher education institutions have chosen to integrate the management of associative projects within their educational programs. This research focuses on the skills developed by students during their experience in the associative life of their institution.We conducted a quantitative survey of 138 students. The experience of being involved in an association for one year appears to have a positive impact on their entrepreneurial self-efficacy (including both behavioral and technical skills) but also their professional self-efficacy. Moreover, the more a student is involved in an association, the stronger their feelings of self-efficacy become. Although the student’s position within the association appears to play a role in the development of skills, this is not the case for the type of association. This work makes it possible to identify useful recommendations for higher education institutions to support their students during their engagement in associations.
