Faculty of Business

Dean's Message

Our Business School aims to achieve its mission of endowing our students with the skills that help them succeed in meeting the demands of the dynamic global business world, and society in general. Our programs provide theoretical and practical knowledge, embracing an approach that instills the spirit of entrepreneurship, develops critical and analytical thinking, and emphasizes social and environmental responsibility.

Adopting the principle of international education standards, our Faculty offers student-centered education to support and enrich student learning experiences inside and outside the classroom, using educational technologies to extend learning outside class time. In this regard, Smart Class application has been adopted as of 2015-2016 academic year. This application enables students to access the lectures live via their computer, smart phone or tablet, or watch the recorded lectures later. Students can also access course materials and interactively communicate with course instructors online through this system.

Our Faculty is in the process of AACSB accreditation, the most sought and prestigious quality accreditation for international business schools. After successfully passing the first stage of eligibility for accreditation, the Faculty is on course to become an AACSB-accredited school, joining   the highly reputed universities such as Harvard, Stanford and MIT.  AACSB accreditation is based on comprehensive external reviews, and is therefore an important, internationally recognized designation for the educational quality of our Faculty.

Our undergraduate programs are in English.  Our graduate programs are conducted by Graduate School of Business, and within these programs, our MBA program is offered both on-campus and off-campus through distance learning systems.  In order to reach a higher population of students, we aim to increase the number of our distance learning graduate programs.  ERASMUS and other international exchange programs provide an opportunity for our undergraduate and graduate students to broaden their vision, experience different cultures and expand their communication networks.

In the Faculty of Business, and the university in general, student satisfaction is a high priority.  We regularly review and update our curriculum in line with the latest educational developments, allowing students to enhance their competences in their target fields.  Our Faculty aims to provide a sustainable educational quality through the active usage of above mentioned educational technologies and international accreditation. As a result, graduates will not only be well-qualified, and knowledgeable, but more importantly, will take pride in their University and Faculty.
