Annotation: Today’s challenges require to revise the existing approaches to training of students of economic disciplines. Such challenges include a number of problems: the emergence of innovative information technologies in various spheres of our lives, rapid changes in various sectors of the economy, weakening and “materialization” of motivation of students, the discrepancy between the views of teachers, the state, science and the market about the knowledge that a modern economist should have. Such fundamental modern trends as, for example, “digitalization”set a special tone for the development of the modern education system. Based on the analysis of abstracts and articles devoted to this problem, the author tries to identify the demand for “digital” competencies for economists in the modern Russian labor market. Another trend, which is now focused on the expert community, members of the government and the media – bringing the learning process to the development of skills that will be in demand in the market and in the future workplace graduate. At the same time, it is important to find a middle ground between the formation of these specialized skills and the expansion of the economic, legal, managerial erudition of graduates-economists in order to “not throw the child out with water”. Thus, in this article, based on the methods of comparative analysis and induction, Russian and international developments, as well as the experience of teaching the author of economic disciplines in higher education (Moscow Witte University), we will try to find recipes and propose new approaches to improve the quality and development of economic education in Russia.
