Abstract

Military and civilian higher education institutions play a particularly important role in training future specialists. Changes in society, globalization, competitiveness, increased competition for human and financial resources are some of the factors that drive change within civilian higher education institutions and increase the pressure to achieve performance at an increasingly higher level. In the case of military higher education institutions, the pressure to achieve higher and higher performance is higher because, in addition to the factors that determine changes within civilian higher education institutions, there are also factors specific to the military environment, a dynamic environment, in constant transformation. In order to cope with change, to develop and increase the quality of the educational act, military and civilian higher education institutions must become “learning organizations”, becoming flexible, adaptable, involving teachers in achieving the proposed goals, using creativity, and their knowledge.
