Innovation, imitation and adaptation: The experience of fifteen years of upscaling Hungarian economic higher education

Part One of the paper is devoted to the structural features of changes inhigher education in terms of contents and space as well as organizational structure. PartTwo is devoted to the analysis of status quo and perspectives. From this, in Part Threerecommendations and suggestions follow. The major finding is that approximation to theWest European standards has already replicated the structural weaknesses of thosesystems. The mismatch between ideology and bureaucracy- inspired changes in highereducation on the one hand, and labor market demand in the medium to long run on theother has intensified and is likely to grow in the future.
