Abstract:

Education is a fundamentally important issue for the prosperity and sustainable economic development of the country. A quality education system is a necessary condition for the improvement of personal, professional and public life. World experience shows that countries that pay more attention to raising the level of education are developing faster and achieving better living conditions. World experience shows that countries that pay more attention to raising the level of education develop faster and achieve better living conditions. Getting an education is a continuous process of human life. One of the key roles in this process is played by university education. The main function of the university is to prepare a person to start a professional activity and to develop such skills that will help in career advancement. The question of whether universities are able to provide a qualified workforce for the labor market is relevant and controversial not only in the Georgian reality, but also globally. In many cases, universities provide students with some theoretical knowledge as well as basic skills, but this is not enough. To succeed in the modern global economic system, universities must focus on improving students' communication skills, critical and analytical thinking. It is important that they create a learning environment that helps students adapt easily to the work environment. Universities should provide young people with the knowledge, skills and competencies relevant to the demands of the modern labor market. In the paper, on the example of Tbilisi State University, it was studied to what extent Georgian universities are ready to train a qualified workforce. In addition, major problems in the teaching process were identified and recommendations were developed to improve the quality of teaching and to develop programs that will help university graduates build successful careers in the labor market.
