Abstract Authors of the paper explore the problem of developing applied mathematical competences of students from an economics college under conditions of the contemporary digital economy. Individual competences form various systems of capabilities and manifest themselves at various levels when solving academic and professional tasks relevant for the individual. Teaching mathematical disciplines can intentionally develop certain students’ competences. Passive, active and interactive ways of teaching mathematics and its applied aspects to students create conditions for developing intellectual competences. Contemporary digital economy requires the integration of mathematical and computer modeling into a single whole to solve complex production tasks. Development of production and society in the twenty first century shapes a certain kind of thinking among students – good perception of fragments within massive information flows and simultaneously complications with establishing logical links. Students are currently challenged to create abstract models of real processes and phenomena. They are hard put to perform mathematical operations without using computing devices when solving applied tasks. This is related to the fact that such activity requires a theoretical type of thinking. The pedagogical task is finding the ways of developing applied mathematical competences required for successful adaptation in the information and technology space.
