The Reform of Higher Economic Education in Poland


  • Edward K. Zajicek
  • Todd P. Steen
  • S. Ryszard Domański


Economic reforms in Poland have created new challenges and opportunities for the economics profession. After decades of economic isolation, the country is striving to integrate into both the world's markets and the mainstream of economic thinking. The quickly transforming economic environment creates a sense of urgency to prepare a new cadre of economists trained in market systems. This requires not only a complete restructuring of the entire economic and business curricula at universities but also new social studies programs at high schools and continuing education opportunities for businesspeople. The success of the economic education program should have a long-reaching, positive impact on the economy and its transformation.
