In a rapidly changing world universities are facing the following challenges: HEI's brand positioning as a factor of international competitiveness improvement; HEI as a news source; influence of informational transparency on HEI's performance; insufficiency of informational promotion of its achievements.
The modern University, being one of the main drivers of socioeconomic development, is expected to respond quickly to ever-changing world in order to create favorable conditions that contribute to the disclosure of the personal potential of the person. At the same time, universities need to respond timely and flexibly to the requirements of stakeholders (society, state, employers), to global trends, and to compete successfully with other educational service providers.
To be more precise, universities constitute the most important sector of society, the human capital and the human values, the foundation of the future, and higher education is the foundation of these values worldwide. These values are passed on from century to century, from generation to generation in both top world universities and small universities known only locally. This mission has always been the most important.
And universities fulfill this mission with one strict condition – their ability to hearing each other should be maximized because the global world scales up all of the criteria and “threshold requirements” including this one.
