In a world in which information can quickly change and be disseminated, as the Faculty of Business at İstanbul Bilgi University, we have endeavored to become one of the pioneering institutions in this area. With a strong faculty made up of more than 60 full-time faculty members, instructors and research assistants and many guest lecturers and an alumni numbering more than 4,000 that are employed by many respected companies worldwide and in Turkey in the public and private sectors, we have achieved that success.
There are nine different undergraduate programs in our faculty, 5 of these programs are part of the Business and 4 are part of the Economics departments. There are also graduate and PhD programs available in our business and economics departments. We are the largest faculty at İstanbul Bilgi University, with almost 3,000 registered students. We provide our students with an education that comprises an interdisciplinary, modern and global approach. We are extremely confident of our academic faculty and academic programs. One of our primary goals is to provide our students with a strong professional education and a rich cultural experience. Besides their core curriculum classes, students can choose from elective courses in their own program or from other departments and faculties in line with their areas of interest and can be equipped with a wider perspective. The basis of our educational philosophy is to combine theory and practice and allow for specialization in various fields.
As the Faculty of Business, in line with the main mission of İstanbul Bilgi University, we value protecting the strong bonds we have created with every part of society. Thanks to our many cultural and scientific activities, we have contributed to our students’ personal development and strengthened our ties to the community.
We are also a pioneering faculty in terms of research projects and scientific publications. We give particular importance to the cooperation and collaboration we have maintained with academic circles in Turkey and abroad. Thanks to these collaborations, our students have been able to widen their horizons and vision and learn to easily adapt to other cultures by participating in exchange programs in many different parts of the world.
Operating under the assumption that the active participation of a student in university life is both a privilege and a responsibility, we encourage the participation and contributions of our students in every area from the creation of new course programs to social projects. The lively, academic, social and cultural environment of the university helps our students develop the competency to face the problems of today’ world and be a guiding light for them throughout their lives.
