The existing education system in Serbia is not development oriented. The level of competency, creativity, effectivity, responsibility and competitivity of educational and scientific work, in spite of considerable personal achievements, does not respond to the needs of the accelerated development of the society. Without urgent and wide changes, the present level of creating, implementing and diffusion of the new knowledge does not make possible public wealth. To that effect, legislative, organisational and financial reform of the educational-scientific system is a condition for Serbia’s survival in the civilization region of Europe and the contemporary world.

According to the previous theoretical approach, the research is examining the ways of managers’ education (self-evaluation, ex-ante evaluation and impact evaluation), and also the survey among the industry managers, about explicit and tacit knowledge needed for successful managing.

Previous researches were based mostly on one of the factors mentioned, which made them deficient. None of the researches was based on four types of knowledge conversion, as a fundament for creating learning organizations and the knowledge-based society.

Further limitations of previous researches are also in the sample. Participants were either only teachers, or only managers, or only students. In this paper, we are trying to clear away these limitations, by including teachers, students and managers. The survey is based on the questionaire with four types of the knowledge conversion. We will show the attitudes of students of management, their teachers, as well as the attitudes of industry managers, about the needed knowledge of future managers.
