Master of Business Administration (MBA) program invites participants to a learning experience leading to both professional and personal development.
Program Coordinator Prof. Nimet Uray
The design of the MBA program is based on the anticipation that our participants have studied a non-business subject previously and they tend to build managerial careers. The competence targets of the program spans the areas of finance, human resources, accounting, marketing, production/operations management and organizational behavior.
In the MBA program learning is considered as a holistic process over time and across space; it begins in the core and elective courses delivered in-class and continues during project work, meetings with speakers renowned in their fields and communication among alumni. This establishes a strong bridge between theory and practice.
Applied perspective of the MBA program equips its participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for managerial success to achieve admirable outcomes. At the same time, participants with an academic orientation are provided with a sound knowledge of methodology and toolset to create new knowledge in their fields.
Problems encountered in professional life are often ill-defined; compared to usual textbook problems they require creative solutions against the quite limited amount of preliminary information. This transforms problem solving from a solely technical procedure to an art. To provide program participants with such an understanding, MBA program maintains a rapid and effective, socially and environmentally responsible design culture that emphasizes sustainability and norms of ethical behavior.
As a member of this program, the participants will practice their leadership skills while strengthening their business acumen to apply to the problems of local as well as global business environment.
All participants are expected to document their individual academic/technical achievements by submitting a graduation project or a master’s thesis. Earlier admission to all programs are on a “project” (non-thesis) basis. That status can be turned to “thesis” conditional upon academic success and orientation.
