- The article presents a study of the functioning of higher education systems at the regional level in terms of their productive efficiencies. The purpose of this research is to determine the regional higher education systems' effectiveness using a Slack-Based Measure of efficiency (SBM), which is a variant of the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). The novelty of the study is the performance of modified DEA model with a set of special variables for analysis of regional higher education systems. This multidimensional model allows construct efficiency frontier consisting of region set, which are best-practice of higher education systems. The slacks which are needed to push the decision making unit to the frontier (target) were calculated for the inefficient regions. The resulting regions ranking and identifying the best-practice examples in terms of the functioning effectiveness of higher education systems provide an opportunity for objective decision-making on the development of education systems.
