Abstract
While the present day is marked by various phenomena like the digital economy, globalization, e-commerce and the like, there is a general consent that knowledge has become the most important resource, so that it is now viewed as intellectual capital. The institutions of higher education in the area of management should create and develop the type of knowledge which aims to improve business enterprises, its organization, performance, and development. Local private universities teaching management are experiencing very high growth rates. It is generally assumed that these universities and programs take into account the needs of the economy and underlying companies, so as to tailor its products (knowledge management) and prepare its students to effectively start their careers at companies. However, in reality there is no solid correlation or any meaningful connection between the university management programs and the real economy. A lack of demonstrated responsibility of all interested parties in this process (universities, economy and companies, students, even the government) will have significant consequences. Perhaps the most obvious one is a very difficult transition period between studies and the development of a professional career among students. Universities lack practical, real-life studies, and students learn about companies in an indirect and impractical way, while the government also does not show adequate interest. At US and European universities, the practice of management is in focus, as is a detailed analysis of case studies, and a general problem-solving aspect during the courses.
