University education in a changing world
18 June 2016

Finding the right balance in the relationship between business and universities has been a subject of debate for more than a century. The issue has become even more pertinent in recent years as the university of the future will not only have to educate its students, but also develop their technological and business skills and instil a culture of entrepreneurship. Do the challenges in modern education require a fundamental rethinking of paradigms and approaches or is the role of the university simply to ensure that graduates find jobs? How can universities become the epicentre of change and development for a region, industries, or a country, and are these models universal? How should Russia’s higher education system be organized and should it retain its current department- and industry-based structure?
