Abstract

The improvement of Russian higher education competitiveness is a strategic task for the country socio-economic development. The higher school trains experts who will have to solve the complex tasks faced by the country economy, and provide a technological breakthrough. At that it should be noted that the modern graduate should have skills in the global economy. The implementation of measures improving the competitiveness of Russian higher education is faced with a number of restrictions caused by the global economic development. One of the main limitations is state funding reduction for universities, which forces them to seek new sources of resources, including the external market. This leads to increased competition between universities for applicants. It should be noted that competition is not limited only to the national market, it acquires an international character. In developed economies, higher education is one of the sources of export earnings. Besides, foreign countries recruit qualified labor through international educational projects. One of the tools to improve the competitiveness of university is its international activity. On this basis, it follows that the development of methodological tools for international activity management in a higher education institution is an urgent task today.
