The development of innovations and intellectually intensive markets in Russia at the moment, considering the historically established important role of individuals in these markets, increasingly raises the question of the necessity of personal branding technologies in similar industries. Since among the works of Russian authors the topic of personal branding has been studied with an emphasis on tactical measures and there are almost no methods for developing strategic solutions, it is necessary to develop this area. The developed method for the formation of personal brands in intellectually intensive markets and the identity model of the “Conception of personal brands” allow to develop a personal brand, considering characteristics of the individual and requirements of the market, as well as to offer strategic alternatives to the personal branding. The model includes a set of conceptual solutions for the formation of the brand image, which, depending on the initial data obtained during the study, can be arranged in various ways. The application of the method and model is considered in detail on the formation of a personal brand of a specialist in venture capital investment in Russia and the development of a company promotion strategy using personal branding technologies.

The article proposes a method of assessing the importance of the social infrastructure of the University to improve its competitiveness (including international), taking into account the university stakeholders interests on the basis of T. Saaty’s Analytic Hierarchy Process method. The following steps are proposed and characterized in the methodology: 1) structuring choice problem as hierarchy; 2) research toolkit elaboration and the selection of experts; 3) determination of the weight coefficients of the university social infrastructure significance for different categories of stakeholders; 4) determination of the weighting coefficients of the university social infrastructure various elements significance for each category of stakeholders; 5) calculation of the final coefficients of the university social infrastructure various elements significance, taking into account the interests of all stakeholders categories.
The following components of social infrastructure elements were considered: housing and communal, public catering and trade, consumer services, cultural and recreational, sports and health, information and communication, transport. The decision to develop one or another element of the infrastructure depends on the opinion of the stakeholders (local students; students from other regions of the country; foreign students; “young scientists” who live or aren’t living on campus; scientific and pedagogical workers over 40 who live or aren’t living on campus). Using the proposed methodology, it was found that increasing university competitiveness, taking into account stakeholders interests, is provided by: 1) housing and communal infrastructure development; 2) development of information and communication infrastructure, cultural and recreational infrastructure and sports and health infrastructure; 3) public catering and trade infrastructure development. The developed methodology is interesting to university management when designing development programs and increasing universities competitiveness.
