Training and Research in Higher Education Institutions in Ukraine: Administrative and Financial Issues
This paper aims to describe in detail the functioning of higher education institutions (IHEs) in Ukraine and to discuss some of the administrative and financial problems of higher education there. Problems in the education system naturally attract the attention of both experts and the public at large. Transition has greatly affected the demand for graduates and the quality of training and, at the same time, it has impacted on the forms and opportunities for training and research (including studies abroad), especially in Economics and related fields. This paper seeks to identify directions for reorganisation of the higher education system in Ukraine in relation to changes taking place in other transitional countries and economies. The following issues related to the administration of teaching and research and financial incentives within public higher education institutions are discussed in the paper: the structure of higher education institutions; organisation of academic work; employment and academic positions at University; traffic of academic staff; salaries and wages of academic staff; research IHEs; demand for graduates and postgraduates; sources of finance for IHEs; financial resources of public institutions and the government funds and fee revenues.
