Besides, it has been identified that the change in the requirements to education on the part of economic sector of labor market led to the students' dissatisfaction with their professional skills. The result of the research can influence the innovative transformations in education in the following specialties: “Enterprise and Organization Economics”, “Entrepreneurship”, “Economics. International business”. As a result of the research, the recommendations have been formulated that can be realized by virtue of the joint work of local authorities, administration of universities and teaching staff. It is recommended to modernize the technical facilities of universities (computer classrooms, the use interactive boards). Besides, introduction of innovative methods is very important, because they will significantly increase the students' readiness for practical activity. Such methods include case-technologies, “round tables”, seminars in a form of debates. The list of the subjects at each faculty needs certain revision. More innovative disciplines must be introduced that directly relate to the students' professional activity with the emphasis upon practice.
