educational sphere as a response of the education system to the challenges of society. Emphasis is placed on expanding the list of socio-economic professions governing the relationship “individual – social institution”. The requirement for modern specialists to apply non-standard solutions and the ability to act flexibly in the dynamic conditions of society is regulated by the multi-purpose and multi-component result of education.

Accordingly, the mission of universities should also include the formation of a new type of person who possesses a complex of innovative thinking.
