The demands of the labor market are also changing dynamically, expecting new competencies, skills, styles of work in future specialists. And so, university education must accept this challenge with dignity, adapting those best practices that have proven their effectiveness in other fields. In this context, the IT sector produces new approaches to business processes. Some of them are successfully used in various fields.
