Information Systems Management University has experience in developing interdisciplinary modules within the framework of Business English, when the educational language environment serves as the basis for trans-disciplinary cooperation in Management and Information Technologies. On the basis of this Systems approach the authors have worked out the criteria and quantitative indices of interim and final results of student achievements in the English language acquisition. Using these data the authors have calculated the Learning Curve Model for the TOEIC test, reflecting the necessary time and content modules to achieve higher levels of the English language proficiency to ensure young professionals the ability to work on teams to solve complex problems, to think critically, think systemically, work collaboratively and communicate effectively.
