The presentation shows that the creation of education management information systems (EMIS) of the third generation (EMIS for graduate tracer studies) is relevant for Ukraine. Such systems allow setting up the interrelation between the results of higher education impact on a person and his or her activities in the labor market. This is very important information that can give universities and education authorities reasonable grounds for changing the curricula, as well as the approaches to the higher education financing, and changing the “higher education quality” paradigm to increase the competitiveness of this sphere in the global competitive space.
