Education, economy and labour market bear important relationships. The ever faster changes and more important preservation of competitiveness force higher educational institutions and economic players to cooperate more effectively. According to their educational, scientific, knowledge-maker and generative characteristics, universities and colleges receive and play a more active role in the deve-lopment of the economy. Besides the expansion and multitude of higher education these also contribute to the changes in higher educational roles. In this study, which was conducted among higher educational lecturers, first of all we were looking for the answer whether there is a turn to receive practical experience during daily educational system or in the operation of institutions. Continuing this, in our target groups we intended to find out whether there is change in relationships among lecturers themselves, lecturers and their students, lecturers and economic players. We also wanted to find out if there is any possibilities to work in a team and whether we can find any sign of expectations defined by lecturers and employers of the labour market. Is there any improvement in the way of preparation for living up requirements, such as project-work, language - and entrepreneur abilities? What kind of attitude can be recognized in the theoretical, practical and educational methods?
