educational institutions is "theoretic" that’s why they have decided
to involve them in the working process.

with students and professors of different faculties presenting them
themes concerning the success strategies of business development,
technological development of cell networking, marketing strategy and
other themes. Many institutions have asked VivaCell MTS Company to

theory will help them to take up decisions in their future plans", –
