Abstract:At the end of the twentieth century knowledge economy and globalization forces changes in the higher education sector.
When describing contemporary Poland, we pay attention to the variety of phenomena creating this reality.
Impact on higher education in Poland has had experience since the early years of European integration, dynamic changes in the Polish market economy, building an open society.
Expenditure on education, culture and science in the Polish strategy was treated as an investment rather than consumption expenditure.
However, expenditure on this sphere of the last 10 years have shown no significant increase in expenditures.
Such a policy toward higher education does not support its development.
Since the year 1990 in Poland, we observe a growing interest in higher education.
It is the resultant of the economy's demand for highly qualified staff.
However, the creation and development of educational services market in Poland was not only the result of changes in globalization, but also changes in political, legal and social developments in Poland.
The model of higher education according to different reports of this entity and researchers can be compared to the model of bureaucratic-oligarchic.
Therefore, it is important to provide an assessment of the state of higher education in Poland.
Keywords: Evaluation, Higher Education, Global Changes.
