The state of humanity and the earth demands outstanding academic and non-academic education in the fields of Business, Politics, Hospitality, Media, and Psychology. Relevant knowledge and professional competencies which take into consideration human needs and ethical values are of utmost importance. In every business and industry, 80% has got to do with people; with Psychology. Having the right psychological knowledge and skills are an absolute requirement to be able to succeed and understand life and business. Making as much profit as possible by ignoring human values destroys a person’s integrity, humans around them as well as the planet as a whole. Profiting at the expense of failing as a person is a hollow and destructive path, which becomes clear when looking at the social, economic and ethical catastrophes around the globe today.
