The objective of this study was to systematize the results of a pedagogical experience carried out with second year students of the Universidad César Vallejo, Peru (UCV). The academic subject was Personal Development (curriculum B and C of the UCV educational model). It was developed through 33 experiential leadership workshops conducted by lecturers of the above-mentioned subject. Population: 1522 students. Sample: 1316; attendance rate: 86%. As a teaching-learning methodology, the Flipped Classroom was used, through which students researched (semi-presential) and discussed (presential) the characteristics of the entrepreneurial leader. For this purpose, work teams were formed (between 5 and 6 members). This allowed the students to systematize their individual findings until they reached collective and definite conclusions. Finally, the study establishes a hierarchy of the fundamental (level 1), relevant (level 2) and complementary (level 3) characteristics of the entrepreneurial leader, by grouping them into a ranking of integral characteristics.
