Current paper focuses on identifying indicators on higher education within the European Union that build up the evolution of higher education within the last years. Due to this approach, the performed analysis focuses on tendencies and trends regarding indicators concerning the number of students, their international mobility, proportion of higher education graduates, employability of graduates and their market insertion but also on expenditure regarding education within various EU countries. The analysis also builds on comparisons regarding tendencies of indicators and focuses on the emerging trends concerning higher education within Romania, as a country member of the European Union. The findings of this research sample may serve as an incentive in performing future researches concerning corporate governance in higher education, highlighting the main aspects to be considered when designing appropriate ways in identifying needs and expectations of the major interested parties within the educational process in a way that teaching-learning processes to be designed respond in an appropriate manner to the expectations of the social-economical environment.
