The Institute of Political Science and Journalism has been cooperating for many years with representatives of many circles due to the specific nature of their courses. The Program-Business Council, created in 2016, brings together representatives of the regional government, politics, the media, editorial boards of major national and regional magazines, high schools and organizations related to the national security. The cooperation includes regular meetings and specialized lectures that deepen knowledge of the Institute's fields of study. The members of the Business Council represent an important subject in the assessment of education programs; recommend topics for thesis work and effective job search. It is also important to coordinate the organization of practices, especially for future journalists, during which students have the opportunity to get acquainted with the full workshop of the profession.
