  • Improving management competences
  • Systematisation of knowledge and learning about the latest trends, concepts, tools and so-called best management practices.

Nowak, rector of the University of Warsaw, during his speech.

The inaugural lecture entitled "Collegial art of management" was delivered by prof. dr hab.
