INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH IN THE FORMATION OF "THIRD GENERATION" INNOVATIVE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP UNIVERSITIES
Abstract. The article considers the problems of introduction and use of interdisciplinary approach in the formation of innovative and entrepreneurial universities of the third generation. Interdisciplinary connections, which provide an interdisciplinary approach in the field of education, scientific base, as well as the system of education as a complex of fundamental and taxonomic disciplines are studied in the article. The use of an interdisciplinary approach in the training of future professionals is seen as part of the process of forming their professional competence through the implementation of links with the disciplines of humanities, socio-economic and scientific training. In a competency-based approach, interdisciplinary connections allow knowledge, skills and abilities to be transferred from one area of science and professional activity to another. The interdisciplinary approach is aimed at the connection of disciplines, when the contradictions in the mastery of ideas, methods and techniques of research between sciences are smoothed out and there is a complex use in professional activity of theory and practice obtained on the basis of studied disciplines. Both significant advantages and problems that arise when using an interdisciplinary approach are considered. It is proved that the demand for specialists with universal skills and abilities, formed under the influence of the study and interconnection of disciplines of different fields, is relevant. The necessity of strengthening the role of the interdisciplinary approach in the formation of "third generation" universities as innovative forms of entrepreneurial activity is substantiated.
Key words: interdisciplinary approach, competence, integration, innovation, information technology revolution, entrepreneurship.
