This article discusses the features of the corporate culture of Institutions of Higher Education with different ethnic composition and duration of existence. The methods used in the study allow us to connect dominant type of corporate culture of a university with the level of learning motivating in students. The study puts forward the hypothesis on existence of a single, universal model of the university's corporate culture, not dependent on inter-cultural characteristics.
