This paper points to this conflict of interest against the background of some of the global researches that unequivocally point to a higher theoretical education of staff, which allows implementing hands-on activities with a high degree of efficiency. It indicates a variety of approaches and views of the managerial and marketing theory today commenting on current phenomena in social development and at the same time presenting the writer´s thought on possible directions of university study orientation in the field: marketing communications.
