Purpose: The purpose of this Article is to present a proposal for a model of managerial competence in the fourth industrial revolution, known as industry 4.0. The consequence of this revolution is the emergence of new requirements in terms of the competences of employees at every organizational level. The authors focused on the requirements of 4.0 engineers, in connection with the managerial competences expected of them. Design/methodology/approach: In order to answer the research questions posed, a review of the literature and commercial reports presenting the results of research on the expected managerial competences and the profile of an engineer 4.0 was carried out. Findings: The conducted research allowed for the development of the Body of management competencies for Engineer 4.0 model - BoMC4E4.0. Practical Implications: Research results will help to identify the scope of managerial competences of an engineer in the era of Industry 4.0, which in practice may contribute to the creation of requirements for candidates applying for a job in a managerial position in manufacturing companies, educational entities to adjust training programs to contemporary requirements of industry and other researcher to undertake in-depth research in this field. Originality value: The basic and original scientific contribution is the model Body of management competencies for Engineer 4.0 - BoMC4E4.0, developed based on literature research. This model considers three research perspectives: general for Industry 4.0, managerial and engineering. This approach is original and has not been analyzed and published before.
