The study shown in this paper, conducted on a sample of graduate students from Peru and Brazil, aimed to analyse how these factors are perceived when they have prioritize the various fields of social action of the business. The results indicate that the economic factor tends to be the main motivator in most decision-making processes. Moreover, the fact that interest groups exert a greater influence on issues related to the supply of products and services, context in which the perceived legitimacy of the demands of these groups is the attribute that stands out as the most evident important to prioritize the areas of business performance.
