A faculty that prepares students for a global world The Faculty of Economics, Administrative and Social Sciences started the 2010-2011 Academic Year with the departments of Economics, Management, International Trade and Logistics. This was followed by the introduction of the Department of Political Sciences and International Relations in the 2011-2012 Academic Year, and the Department of Psychology in 2012-2013.

Offering a quality education, we aim to make contributions to science, the society, and the regional and national economy with the scientific research and projects conducted. We train our students to reach our educational and research objectives by way of a well-designed curriculum, as well as a young and dynamic academic staff.

An interdisciplinary approach to education, which places high importance on economy and administrative sciences, ensures our students are relieved of the requirement to re-prepare for field-specific exams after their graduation. They are also equipped with up-to-date knowledge and skills by means of the expertise of our academic staff.

Among our primary goals are training scientists and people for the workforce to function well in competitive economies at a global level; analyzing the complex and ever-changing nature of economy and markets; carrying out all kinds of scientific research and publication activities to determine strategy and policy for the solution of economic and social problems.

Our Education System and Curriculum

The dynamics of the economies of individual countries, and indeed of the world, should seriously be taken into account when training candidates in economics and administrative sciences who will work in the globalizing competitive world. In this new structure, it would be wrong to train students who have only specialized in their own field without any interdisciplinary approach. Instead, a variety of learning environments consisting of different courses and specialization areas should be provided to the students.

Our department has developed its curriculum within this approach. A student registered in any of the programs can (among both regular and elective courses) take courses in the other departments in our university. In this way, we believe professionals are better equipped with the basic knowledge required. An effective course advising process is also undertaken to ensure efficient student placement and achievement. The courses in our program have been designed to enable our students to analyze cases and issues, to develop policies, to manage businesses efficiently and effectively, to find gainful employment, and to achieve well in the field-specific exams after graduation.
Elective courses will also be helpful in their social, cultural and sporting lives. For example, students will be engaged in community service projects, and as a result they will have a chance to better embrace the community, and to familiarize themselves with the city and its environs. Personal development thus becomes an enjoyable process, whereby students increasingly adopt a lifestyle that promotes a search for knowledge and learning.

International Experience and Speaking a Foreign Language

International experience is very important for university students. Therefore, there will be chances for our students to learn new and different things, to meet different people and cultures, and to visit other universities in the world. They will benefit from
a) a period of English language education overseas at the end of their English preparatory program,
b) a term of education in a European Union country with the Erasmus inter-university exchange program,
c) sharing an environment with students and lecturers from a variety of countries and cultures.

Due to the reality of global competition, the need to join international markets for trade and business has increased the importance of learning a foreign language. While our students learn advanced English in their preparatory program, carried out through both national and international collaborations, they will also (in time) discover the opportunity to learn languages such as French, German, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Kurdish, Armenian and Hebrew. Therefore upon graduation, our (multi-lingual) students will find better jobs both in Turkey and overseas, or will manage their business with greater competence in an ever increasing global world.
Preparation for a life lived from multiple perspectives

Our faculty aims to train students with the principle of “learning both in school and business,” by promoting close collaboration with the business world and private or public sectors in Turkey and overseas. These collaborations, which are incorporated into the Industrial Application course in the third and fourth years, involve internship programs and expertly conducted seminars, which will enable our graduates to find better jobs.

Alongside a carefully designed and integrated curriculum implemented by our professional academic staff, students are able to participate in art, cultural, recreational and sports activities through a variety of student clubs and sports facilities available on our campus. It is our conviction that this multi-faceted approach will prepare students well for their post-graduation life and the requirements of a global economy.
