Quality education is a precondition for successful development in contemporary society. The learning society has broadened the meaning of education, learning and knowledge. Currently many students choose to work abroad. In our rapidly changing situation, the main priority is New Man, who will live, work and be able to act productively, giving his contribution to a process of the development. Personal and professional competence is named as an important competence for every student and specialist no t only now, but also in future. This article analyses the results of higher education, as reflected in the knowledge, skills, social skills and values of university graduates, looking at the extent to which these are in line with the demands of the labour market.
