Summary/Abstract: Corruption is a terrible disease of our modern society and has deep roots in the development process of a state. It occurs as a serious consequence of certain deviations in the society, endangering the normal functioning of the state and national economy, eroding the stability of the economic, cultural, educational and other types of institutions and destroying the public confidence, regardless of the kind of sociopolitical and economic system. Unfortunately, even the higher education institutions, which are instigators of the social development and progress and should be a mirror of virtue and integrity, are ruled by various forms of corruption. This forms are gaining significant volume especially during the global financial crisis, hence the universities, as an important segment of the community, are not immune to this phenomenon which has devastating effects. Although corruption in higher education is a very sensitive subject, we must speak out loudly about its depravity and block its path of progression. Therefore, it has to be taken effective measures for a repression of the current corrupt activities and prevent the new forms of social evil. The systematic fight against corruption must be an essential priority because it directly affects the quality and the valorization of educational service as well the confidence in the higher education system.
