Introduction

"Higher education has an important role both for the student, as an individual, and also for the society in which he lives. Higher education represents an aid for the growth and the development of the students and a key for a better life" (Pavel, 2012).
Education, professional knowledge and skills constitute crucial determining factors for usefulness of the employee on labor market in the modern world. In Poland the 90s of the last century brought both sharp increase in the number of students, as well as of universities. In recent years, the number of students increases almost five-fold; now, more than every second young people aged 19-24 years is studying. This is a big change, considering that until recently, only about 10% of the most talented young people from every vintage got into university. This phenomenon, very favorably commented in the world, has its consequences for educational process and its results. That is why, implementation of educational process in its current form, as nothing had changed, cannot lead to equally good results as before.

Summary
Nowadays, education is very important. In Poland every second person between 19 and 24 years old is studying, and as a result there are so many people with higher education, that it does not already constitute the guarantee of getting employment. Another problem is a fact that students are choosing directions only according to own preferences often not juxtaposing them with market and economies needs. Thereare too much specialists in one field, while in the second one we observe and their deficiency. Examinations conducted amongst Academy of Physical Education in Katowice students confirms that, and from which it also results, that no matter that the number of students increases, but their preferences in relation to degree courses are not changing oneself considerably. So we are dealing with the occurrence of structure of supply and demand for work incongruity in terms of graduated degree courses, what is being expressed with market saturation with specialists in many fields, at unmet demand for those of technical courses.
