Cultural and creative industries are an important component of the global economy. Cinema, television, theater, advertising, games, music, along with other areas, contribute around 2.4 trillion rubles annually to the Russian economy. As the industry continues to grow, it requires talented professionals with management skills and creative potential to keep up the pace and strengthen their position.

We study the problems and opportunities in the dynamically developing digital world, learn to combine creative and organizational abilities, thereby formulating the value of cultural self-expression. You will learn the culture and creative industry work, become an expert in designing innovative standards and current forms of cultural life in cities and communities. You will begin to understand a wide range of issues: from cultural industries, models of cultural consumption, cultural production to museum management, heritage practices, art market, event management, and marketing in culture.

In Shaninka we have an open “lecture – student” communication. At our university we have no lectures at all, classes are seminars, discussions. Then there are high requirements to academic progress. It creates a competitive environment, and it is very cool to be a part of it. And finally, here we have interesting disciplines. Every time I come to the classes, I learn something new, just every day! You can easily see that all lecturers are very prepared people: it will surely take time when they will not be able to teach us anything new, as it happens sometimes in Russian universities.
