Abstract: The research was based on studying the digitalisation determinants of the higher education system in Russia and evaluating the digital dividends received, which indicate the effectiveness of digitalisation processes. The digitalisation determinants of the higher education system (digital architecture, digital educational services, personnel potential and economic capital) were identified. The authors introduced the concept of 'digital dividends of the higher education system', which includes an increase in the number of students, cost reduction, enhancement of the educational process. The authors proposed a method for calculating the digital dividend ratio based on four indicators with different weights. The result of the digital dividend ratio should become the basis for making management decisions in the process of implementing the state educational policy. The proposed method for calculating the digital dividend ratio can be used to conduct a comparative analysis of the effectiveness of digitalisation of education worldwide.
