Sustainable growth through continuous innovation

That is why, together with its employees, associates and business partners, it constantly works on improving existing services, but also on creating new ones that improve business and raise it to a higher level.

We respect the past, but we are constantly focused on the future.

Support for new ideas

In modern times, there is only one law: if you are not progressing, it means you are regressing . There is no status quo, nor satisfaction with what has been achieved in key areas of modern life such as education and business. That is why Dr. Kuleto provides selfless support for new products and creative ideas.

Clients, attendees, employees or anyone with a good idea or product can expect support in its implementation. Instead of bureaucratic apathy, he encourages experimentation through all business endeavors.

Let's make innovation easier. Instead of hindering them, let's enable them!

Creating social value

The main areas in which Dr. Kuleto is interested in his work, education and business, are crucial for any society. Working to improve their quality on a global level, they strive to contribute to overall social development, values ​​and progress. Through shaping experts, connecting companies with employees, various educational and humanitarian projects, Dr. Kuleto, primarily through LINKgroup, is committed to leaving behind a legacy based on which he will change the future for the better.

Changes require visions, the ability to plan and act. They don't start in offices, in meetings, or in plan folders. Changes start in our heads.

People orientation

The value of the company is people. Their energy, knowledge and commitment are the main reason for good results. That's why Dr. Kuleto is focused on helping people become successful through a developed training network, numerous support services that make clients, partners and employees achieve incredible results.

Let's bring talented people out of the shadows.

The difference between successful and unsuccessful leaders is the ability to solve problems: successful ones are aware that those who can help the most should attend meetings, not those with the highest rank. The principle of knowledge before profession is one of the secrets of Dr. Kulet's success.

For the success of future generations

The reality in which the new generations grow up is significantly different from all the previous ones. The way they learn, engage in the world, create and share their knowledge and achievements with others has changed.

Quality education is the basis of progress and success of individuals and society.

The basic idea with which Dr. Kuleto operates and creates is that each individual, who chooses to study at any LINKgroup institution, will be adequately prepared for success in the dynamic atmosphere of tomorrow.

Savremena gimnazija

Enrolment for 2023/24 is underway!

Click on this link to apply »
I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development.
