This chapter analyzes the state of post-secondary education in Russia in the context of its capacity to meet the challenges of required innovation within the socio-economic system. Russia is, statistically speaking, a world leader in the field of education, with 630 students for every 10,000 members of the population. Bearing in mind that 88 percent of Russian citizens regard higher education as extremely desirable for their children, it is obvious that post-secondary education is playing an important role in constructing Russia's future role within the world system. Acceleration of the economy and innovativeness of the system would be impossible nowadays without a significant contribution from science and the education system.

Keywords:   post-secondary education, Russian education, higher education, socio-economic innovation, economic acceleration
