Today, it is unanimously accepted that the economic stability and competitiveness of the region, the country or even the entire continent depends on very different human activities. Research shows that economic changes are caused by many small and seemingly secondary activities such as knowledge economy, media, economics, economy, economy of technologies and other. Since all activities are not isolated from each other, only a specialist of creative economy is able to understand, plan and duly explain the overall economic activities of relations. He integrally monitors and investigates the processes of creative society, drafts and implements their economic models, performs micro and macroeconomic research, has an integrated approach to economic challenges, most abundantly covering not only the latest development of creative and cultural industries but also their added value.

The creative economy is a very important culture. It becomes the grounds of innovative ideas, and a direct factor for the development of services, marketing and brands. Cultural development and building cultural backgrounds is the key condition of creative and innovative activities creating increasing value added in the modern economy. Culture is the driving force of the creative society, which organically complements and extends the innovation and technological potential of knowledge economy. In this regard, culture as the foundation of creative economic activities and creative and cultural industries, becomes the mandatory attribute of any future-oriented specialist.

The demand for creative economy professionals is also mentioned in the European Union documents, scientific forums, and abundance of statistics and surveys. Most focus is placed on the development of the European creative society, as one of the strategic priorities while seeking competitiveness in the global environment in all important sectors of the creative economy.
