In the current reality, the higher education as the trajectory for the academic career faces particular difficulties. There is a downward trend regarding the number of young academic specialists — a negative factor for the entire educational system. The discussed problem may arise according to various reasons: changes in the law sphere or peculiarities of the educational organization activity. Both Western and Russian researchers conclude that the relations between an organization and its staff members are the key aspect of their loyalty. Thus, this article aims to examine the connection of a university organizational culture perception by the students with different types of identification demonstrated. The authors study the peculiarities of students’ perception of the university organizational culture. Altogether, 118 students participated in questionnaires that measure organizational culture with Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument and four types of identification with the university. The findings show the gap between students’ current and preferred perception of the university organizational culture. Consequently, the dominance of market culture that contradicts the desired “clan” culture orientation with the values of friendly and close relations environment, may influence the choice of academic career and postgraduate studies.
