Success is also ensured by the qualities of a developed personality: aesthetics, ethics, logic, speed, innovation, experimentation, improvisation, foresight, mindfulness.We are designers of processes, facilitators of cross-cultural partnerships, contributing to the promotion of intellectual labour and the protection of copyright. And we focus on creative businesses, as they are the closest to the concept of responsibility, they restore value of private property, risk it in business, protect their rights in the fight against corruption, crime, lawlessness.

The Cultural Business Education Hub explores and applies business tools [design thinking practices, marketing metrics, financial management, risk management indicators, etc.] in relation to cultural projects. And it makes research on cultural phenomena and projects [philosophy, art literature, and high art] integrating them into the C&CI business environment.
