Abstract
Our paper analyzes the important and timely issue of training specialists in humanitarian technologies as a special case of fostering leadership in higher education. We investigate various alternative meanings of the concept of "humanitarian technologies" in higher education, as well as provide an insight and experience from sociological studies of the processes of developing new and popular vocational education programs by the university. The results and outcomes of our research appear to justify the need to design new professions for leaders who would be able to face and to solve real social contradictions of non-standard and outstanding business, social and production situations in their daily professional lives. Moreover, the stages of designing a new profession of a humanitarian technologist are revealed within the framework of the research. Based on the principles of the competence approach, we created a model of qualification requirements for a specialist in the field of humanitarian technologies. Our results might be relevant for higher educational professionals and stakeholders.
