The Department of Agricultural Trade and Management is an interdisciplinary department that provides undergraduate English education. It is a 4-year undergraduate program structured by considering the needs of our country, aiming to combine basic agriculture and soil knowledge with economics and commerce, and to transfer them to its students in practice through long-term internships.
How Do We Aim to Educate Students?
Achieving the global level of development in agricultural management requires understanding and applying the concept of blockchain. Our aim to train students with knowledge and vision at every step of the journey from the field to international trade. We aim to achieve this goal by educating our students in business, management, commerce, technology, informatics, ecology, agriculture, food, and innovation with an interdisciplinary curriculum. Our graduates will be equipped to create added value in agriculture and trade, and to follow technological applications in the world and in our country; they will be individuals who are prone to teamwork, have high ethical values, and responsible individuals who can take part in production, practice, and research.

The Department of Agricultural Trade and Management aims to meet the required personnel capacity on a sectoral basis by providing training on many different subjects for the needs of Turkey, a predominantly agricultural country. In this department, students learn the trade of the products produced and the management process of the enterprises in this field by taking trade knowledge and primary agriculture and soil knowledge. Although the Department of Agricultural Trade and Management is a department with extremely high standards, it allows the work in the agricultural sector to be carried to a more global dimension and to do more consciously. Students who receive training on issues such as increasing the yield of agricultural plants grown in our country and sold to the world, and marketing these products to the world at higher standards, make significant contributions to agricultural trade.
