The focus of the course in both interpretation and discussions with doctoral students will be devoted to clarifying the current view of the concept, content and importance of strategic and innovation management, with emphasis on the business segment, and the penetration of these approaches into the nonprofit sector and public administration. Subsequently, new approaches will be indicated and discussed, which are caused by current socio-economic trends (crisis manifestations of the world economy, globalization shifts, digitization, environmental protection, etc.).
