Background/Objectives: Professional training in “Business Informatics” (Bachelor degree) as has been realized at Russian universities since 2004. The article reveals the theoretical-methodological principles and specifics of professional mathematical culture formation in the future bachelors of Business Informatics at the universities. It is taking cues from the synergetic practice of modern mathematical methods and computer technologies in their professional activities to solve variative tasks. Methods: During the experimental work the following methods were used: questionnaire surveys, content analysis, testing, pedagogical experiment, mathematical processing of empirical data. Findings: The authors explain the essence, structure, levels of manifestation of Business Informatics specialists’ professional-mathematical culture, analyze the results of the lasting experimental work (2004-2016 in the field of professional and applied (practiceoriented) mathematical training of future Bachelors of Business Informatics (BBI). Applications/Improvements: The authors believe that formed professional-mathematical culture among the University graduates (BBI) is a prerequisite for successful adaptation of young specialists in their future career and a prerequisite for the effectiveness of their professional experience (and it has been confirmed by the deferred control data).
