The paper explores developments in the sphere of tertiary education in Russia during the period of socio-economic transformation. It is demonstrated that under market reforms deceptively positive tendency to educational expansion conceals rising inequality in access to education, quality erosion and increasing human capital mismatch thus reducing competitive advantage of Russia lying with national human resources. Alternative approaches to educational reform more favourable for sustainable development are discussed.
