Abstract.This article examines the motivations for achieving success among the students of Mongolian University of Science and Technology, located in the city of Darkhan, which are significant in monitoring the development of soft skills competencies of the students and improvement in the quality of education. Primary attention is given to the establishment of dominant motivations and their correlation with the overall value worldview. The author analyzes the existing gender differences among the male and female students, hierarchy of motivations for achieving success in the diverse categories of success, as well as the dominant value orientations for achieving success. The article applies the psychological diagnostics of motivations for achieving success among the university students, which was recently proposed by S. A. Pakulina. It determines the nine key categories of success: material success; success as luck; success as recognition; success as power; success as result; personal success; success as mental state; success as overcoming; success as calling. The survey consists of 36 questions that determine the preferences towards each of the category of success, with participation of 225 students. It is established that important for the great majority of students of the School of Technology is the inner personal success: success as a result of personal activity, personal success, success as a mental state, success as overcoming of obstacles, and success as calling. Realization of personal potential and serving the supreme goal also considered important by the respondents. The least attractive motive for successful activity for the majority of student is the external success: control and influence other people, make decisions for them. The acquired results can be used in development and implementation of the modern educational curricula and practice in terms of creation of the effective environments for the career and personal activities.
