SMK is a phenomenon of an exceptional model of higher education that has been proving for many years that contemporary education has to be versatile, modern, and practically applicable.

It is extremely important for us to give not only theoretical knowledge to our students but also to provide them with practical work experience. This makes us devote significant attention to experience-based education where different practical cases are being analyzed and real business issues are tackled.
