My main interest has been in the theories and practical investigations in the branch of pedagogic problems of higher education. The key variables that were studied include input and total output in theoretical, methodological and methodical problems of the high school pedagogy. Results obtained, as a logical consequence of original investigations, include new scientific ideas such as integration pedagogy and psychology, social psychology, behaviour in economics, communication sciences. The aim of my research is to develop creative abilities in a changing society. Learning means development and change. There are many aspects in the relations between change strategy and educational content. 

In methodological aspects, the object of my investigation is the optimisation of curricula for teaching in high school by integration of the demands of academic education and professional qualifications.

I have also carried out investigations in behavioural sciences for human resources management in economics and business market. I am interested in the relationship between culture and organisational success.

The humanitarisation of economical education should be a way out of the situation in the business market. Psychology should establish new relations among personal capacity and study content.

Keywords: didactic task; teaching content and structure; consumes behaviour; vocational, methodological and social competence; business public relations; strategy of cognitivity.
