CONDITIONS OF QUALITY EDUCATION
Y.E. Lvovich, A.N. Shvindt
The paper demonstrates the necessity of forming models and procedures of management decision making for improving the quality of higher education management. The authors examine monitoring results of some higher education institutions effectiveness, alumni employment, student surveys as information resources of such an approach. Structuring of these resources is carried out by means of the indexing theory. In order to implement this multistep procedure of management decision making the authors processed and analysed data through the integral estimation, built ranking arrays and clusterized the educational institutions. As well, the authors used neural simulation of depending the rates of quality education upon the factors characterizing conditions and resources. Optimization models and numeric procedures of decision making providing compensation of the revealed deviations from standard requirements are also developed.
