Training a sufficient number of high-calibre specialists is a serious challenge and a catalyst for growth in the domestic design industry. Design permeates every sector of the creative economy, constituting a vital aspect of the tourism, fashion, advertising, IT, game development, music, and manufacturing industries. The state and business are ready to allocate substantial resources for the training of sought-after specialists, but in order for the result to exceed expectations, innovations are needed in their educational process. How can business opportunities be maximized to overcome staffing shortages in different sectors of the economy?
