Abstract: The last half-century was marked by an academic revolution, which brought unprecedented changes in terms of application and diversity. Understanding the ongoing and dynamic process is not an easy task, but is extremely important, especially when you are in the midst of the changes it brings. Currently, scientists believe that higher education systems are facing a lot of changes and many are starting to question the functionality of these systems. Starting from the current economic context and from the controversies existing in the academic environment concerning the functionality of the higher education system, this paper aims to emphasize the features of the functionality of a higher education system. The paper scope is also to underline some of the problems affecting the functionality of the higher education system, staring form the access to the system and finishing with the connection existing between the labour market and the output of the universities functioning inside the system.
