In the context of the deepening socio-economic crisis, the training of qualified economists who must solve important issues concerning timely anticipation of crisis events, predictive assessments of their depth and scale, and the development of effective measures against adverse processes and their consequences, deserves particular attention. In this regard, the importance of education and science increases significantly, which should provide specialists with modern methods of economic management, analysis of economic processes, and adequate and timely assessment of threats to economic development. The analysis of professional tasks solved by economists has shown that they should not only know the theoretical foundations and laws of the market economy functioning, but also be able to identify problems of an economic nature when analyzing specific situations, as well as suggest ways to solve them and assess the expected results, systematize and generalize information, possess methods for analyzing the production and economic activities of an enterprise and evaluating its market positions, and more. Therefore, the list of professional competencies of an economist should include general scientific competency – the ability and preparedness to use knowledge about quantitative relations and spatial forms of the real world, the possession of a system of categories and methods necessary to solve typical tasks in various areas of professional economic activity. Mathematical disciplines play a key role in the formation of general scientific competency in future economists. Specially organized mathematical training allows forming a set of meta-professional knowledge, skills, and personal qualities that make it possible to ensure the greatest effect in achieving the set professional economic tasks, students' mastery of general scientific concepts, and the acquisition of research experience, which constitute the content of the economist’s general scientific competency.
