The article examines the problem of convertibility of human potential created in the process of obtaining higher education into human capital, ensuring high rates of innovative growth of a competitive national economy. The necessity and possibility of formation of intellectual-informational support for the co-evolution of human potential and human capital in an innovative economy are proved. It is argued that the co-evolution of human potential and human capital is ensured by the ability of a specialist to interact with a rapidly changing real professional environment in real time in order to create an innovative product. The concept of creating intellectual-informational support for the co-evolution of human potential and human capital is proposed and mathematically justified. As a result of the implementation of the developed system, the task of preparing a university graduate for self-realization in future professional activities is solved.
