Modern high-tech production based on knowledge, the democratization of society and processes of globalization and regionalization form a new, dynamic labor market and actualize the problem of preparation of highly skilled professionals who ensure the stability of economic development and its integration into the world economic space. All this requires the educational institutions to not only constantly change and improve educational programs and technologies, but also to upgrade quality of higher education, due to the wide dissemination of guidelines for quality assurance in a cross-border higher education of UNESCO and OECD, as well as the creation of transparent intramural systems of education quality assurance for representatives of the labor market.
The purpose of the article is to present the results of theoretical and empirical research problems of improving intramural system of education quality assurance, aimed at increasing the competitiveness and efficiency of the university management in terms of socio-economic development of the cross-border region.
The study was conducted by methods of comparative analysis, monitoring, foresight methods. The theoretical basis for the study was multi-standard approach.
Practical implementation of the study is related to the development of the program of development of intramural system of education quality assurance, aimed at improving the competitiveness and efficiency of the management of the university. Consistency in the education quality assurance and confirmation of compliance of the system with the established international standards gives “credibility” on the part of the professional community and employers, and as a result, provides competitiveness in the domestic and international markets of educational services.
Keywords: education quality assurance, the program of development, regional labor market, foresight methods, monitoring the quality of education
