  • We research the problems of the development of workforce capacity under the economy of knowledge in a capital city by the example of St. Petersburg. The data shows a mismatch between the structure and directions of personnel training in the system of higher education and the needs of employers. We offer recommendations regarding the development of the system to manage the staffing of the branches of the economy of knowledge.
