The beginning of the 21st century revealed the tough competition of economies and companies for human resources. The average life of an organization is declining and only flexible, ready-to-change organizations survive. Competitiveness is understood as the ability to maintain the effectiveness of basic processes of an organization and to transform them in a timely manner, sensitively seizing the trends, updating standards, and launching experimental formats.

The university which generates and transfers knowledge is responsible for formation and imple-mentation of the so-called «professionals’ genetic codes». These codes define qualities of modern and future human resource.

The ability of the universities to be flexible and adaptable to new forms of activity (e.g. e-learning, network forms of research cooperation, new talent management methods, new forms of feedback, the launch of strategic academic units) becomes critical. The same trends are also showing in dynamically developing corporations. A modern university, following the example of corporations, now has to master the norms which are not entirely characteristic of it: entrepreneurial thinking, commercialization of developments, innovative development.

These challenges pose the challenge of training of the Human of Change. Someone who is capable of extending the horizons, changing approaches, and who follows moral and ethical principles.
