Abstract. The policy to improve the quality of higher education through a relationship with the practice can be sustained through management, which is implemented systematically. The article presents an input-output model of the relationship between a higher education institution and an employer, as well as a methodology for its implementation. The concept of the model defines higher education degree as an “output” of the education system and the competency model of the respective job description as an „ input“ to the working position. The results of the empirical study for the application of the model are presented, and questions on the applicability and limitations of the approach to improving the quality and effectiveness of higher education are outlined.
