The competition that exists today in the labour market has significantly raised the value of knowledge, skills and experience of staff. This particular importance for the modern professional acquire fluency in its modern information technology and the ability to continuously improve the skills. The actual trend is also for university teachers. Getting new knowledge and skills practically useful and applicable in daily teaching activities, in the era of information society significantly expands opportunities for self-realization and contributions to career growth. However, in implementing the model of continuous training of teachers for careers there are some significant obstacles. One of them, given the intense schedule of the educational process in terms of academic mobility is the lack of time. Another the geographical factor. With the location of the university in another city, its visit is inconvenient and expensive. Experience of universities of many countries shows that an effective tool to overcome these obstacles is distance learning, which allows to get all necessary knowledge at any time and in any place. The identity of urgency takes in terms of academic mobility when students and teachers work in another country. The paper proposes a methodological approach that takes into account these features. The paper deals with the structuring of project management programs of academic mobility. The features of these projects show their impact on the progress and results of the implementation. It is shown that traditional approaches to solving the problems of academic mobility management applications to integrate the process of setting objectives and planning projects. But due to the complexity of academic mobility programs to solve these problems effectively without decomposing it into components can be managed quite difficult. Therefore, the main idea of this paper is that an increasing the efficiency of the university on the basis of a possible application of rational structuring of academic mobility programs. The features of these projects shows their impact on the progress and results of their implementation and the ways of construction of project management distance learning systems. The paper presents the analyse of the structure of scientific and methodological basis of project management systems. In this structure are identified two parts: creation tool to identify knowledge users and how they change, and the creation of information tools effect on these people. The model determines the effect of academic mobility project management tools through knowledge of business administration at the progress of the educational projects.
