Quality of Higher Education in the Context of Institutional Change

Quality of Higher Education in the Context of Institutional Change

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 10 (no. 2),

The development of the digital economy in our country has been dynamic for several years. According to the approved programs and plans, various information technologies are gradually introduced into all spheres of life. The main vector of structural adjustment is aimed at modernizing personnel and education, improving legal regulation, creating the necessary infrastructure, as well as ensuring information security. Since higher education institutions are directly involved in the formation of the personnel reserve, it is necessary to pay special attention to their study. The digital economy requires education focused on the formation of a person with a certain set of competencies, ready for change, lifelong learning, able to solve the problems of financial and economic development of the country. Modernization of science and higher education is directly related to the transformation of human intelligence into a leading factor of national competitiveness. Reforms of the Russian higher education system has been going on for several decades. The widespread development of the Internet and other technologies has led to an increase in the availability of information. Automation of various production processes contributed to the complete or partial disappearance of a few specialties and a massive shortage of specialists with digital knowledge, skills and abilities. These trends have a significant impact on higher education institutions, which in turn requires them to appropriate changes in the specifics of the functioning and management, as well as improvement of the educational process. Therefore, the most important task of universities now is to develop a strategy for further development and digital transformation for a successful transition to a competitive educational and research activities.
