It helps in solving tasks and problems they face with in creative and innovative way. For each year of study we use the method of projects and workshops, whereby the students develop their competencies, and shape attitudes needed to succeed in life and career. Thanks to the new model of education students also develop their personality. During the studies are conducted workshops, which enhance skills in communication, resolving the conflicts, cooperation, or negotiation.
