The prerequisites of the study underlying this paper were the growing threats and challenges to the security of society, including the security of education in general, and universities in particular. The purpose of the study is to identify the leading directions of the transformation of the educational process in higher education, which may significantly increase its flexibility, which simultaneously meets the needs of introducing flexible management in the economy and social sphere, as well as the trends in the development of creative potential and the resulting need to improve talent management approaches. These areas include the transition to a non-linear model of education, the introduction of transdisciplinary methods, and the expansion of openness and creativity of the educational process. The main methods of study were the analysis of the situation formed in higher professional education, which was fundamentally changed in the conditions of the coronavirus pandemic, the study of trends in the development of higher education by Russian and foreign authors, observation and a pedagogical experiment conducted by the authors in 2020 as part of the educational process at Moscow Automobile and Road Construction State Technical University (MADI). As a result of the study, the most promising directions for the development of non-linear and transdisciplinary forms of higher professional education were noted, new forms of higher educational process and the teaching methods corresponding to them were identified, which were tested at the MADI Department of Sociology and Management and could be introduced into the practice of other higher educational institutions.
