Graduate Brochure ENGLISH
“The Graduate Programs, MA and PhD, are among of the leading programs in economics in Turkey. The Programs (MA since the academic year of 1988-1989 and PhD since the academic year of 1992-1993) combine strong training in pure theory and applications. They are designed to prepare students to advance further in academic work and to compete for research and analysis positions in the public and private sectors. The close interaction between faculty members and graduate students provides a remarkable learning experience to students. Half of our MA graduates pursue their PhD studies and they have been working as faculty members in the universities both in Turkey and abroad. Most of the PhD graduates also work as faculty members.
