Higher Education and the Labour Market – Romania Case of Study


  • Patache Laura

    () (“Spiru Haret” University)


In the present paperwork I tried to achieve a SWOT analysis of Romanian higher education through the perspective of national and international trends which outline it, highlighting the interconnections between the higher education supply and the labour market demand. Like any SWOT analysis is focused on an objective, so, I seek the answer to the question: The educational supply is able to respond and to anticipate the labor market demand? In the New Economy context, on labour market began to take shape some features of "creative worker": provider of work that incorporates a high degree of investment in human capital, with emotional intelligence, adaptable and flexible to the requirements of internal and external environment, dependent on HT, mobile and easy to fit in the firm. The educational offer must not only to be linked to the labor market needs but to anticipate them.
