There can be a lot of opinions concerning this step. For sure famous figure, who really gained great results and has valuable information to share, brings the interest for the students and respect from colleagues.

From the marketing point of view famous guest lecturers serve as an effective advertisement for the university. Thus, if a student is fond of the informational technologies and will have an opportunity to attend the lecture, led by Bill Gates, this will be a remarkable factor for him or her. Besides, it is not only interesting to listen to the top-ranking people; communication with all outstanding personalities appears to be thrilling and attractive experience. One more significant thing is that most of the students will be more interested and motivated to information perception from the figures of authority, who are acknowledged in the whole world.

Angelina Jolie is known not only for her cinematographic works and achievements. She is the person, who leads active social life and performs significant humanitarian works. That is why she will be the visiting professor in the Center for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Perhaps, Jolie’s lectures will become a useful sharing of practical knowledge and will motivate students for active steps and right solution in the future.

The performance of the guest lecturers in the Center for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Political Science is unpaid. There are contradictory thoughts and comments on this news; anyway the contribution to education, made by people with the prominent achievements, is the interesting and challenging undertaking.

Marketing trick or educational achievement?

Are there any educational benefits from involving the famous figures of society into the lecturing process? Does it serve only as the point of attraction and bring no use? A lot of people say that there is no point in random lecturing for a few times without knowledge checking and well-thought program. These lectures rather have the format of conversations and have free form of performance. Students hardly have the feeling that it is a usual academic activity; it looks like the meeting, which includes some professional hints and opinions of the experienced men. But we consider that such events and formats bring only positive contribution to the specialists’ development and education. Only few people can have an opportunity of meeting people, who have outstanding mind, brilliant business intuition or generate ideas that influence the whole society. Such lectures can enlarge your imagination and bring you at least a slight understanding about the modern geniuses and people, who gain success in this complicated and ever-changing world. A lot of modern businessmen and bankers arrange seminars for sharing their experience and this costs a lot of money.
