ABSTRACT
Transparency tools are aimed to contribute to building trust in the field of higher education. Transition from strong state regulation to regulation on distance, the strengthening of the institutional autonomy, increase of the level of room of manouvre of the management of the higher education institutions, diversification of the sources of funding and increased level of competition for resources requires corresponding mechanisms of accountability and transparency of higher education institutions. The Netherlands was picked as a country with the most entrepreneurial university governance model and the most market-based type of higher education public policy of the countries situated in the Continental Europe. Besides, the Netherlands has centrally organized higher education with a long academic tradition and autonomous well-established universities. Thus the aim of the article is to explore such mechanisms of transparency of higher education institutions as annual report, strategic plan and performance agreements. The higher education institutions should be aware that transparency tools can help in making informed decision to prospective students and representatives from business and our research shows that Dutch higher education institutions use transparency in beneficial way.
