Summary/Abstract: This text analyzes the relationship between mathematical competency and the competitiveness of the ICT industry. The relationship between student math skills and the number of patents in the field of information and communication technologies is modeled. The trends in higher education related to the two key areas of Industry 4.0 are analyzed:1) Informatics; and 2) Mathematics and Statistics. I identify several challenges to the management of human capital development: the reduction of students’ interest in mathematics, lack of a strategic vision for the development of mathematical competences in secondary and tertiary education, lack of vision in business.
