What is Business Administration

The Department of Business Administration, which admits students based on their equal-weighted scores, is one of the most popular departments within the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences. It offers its graduates extensive job opportunities in various fields. Students are prepared for the business world, enabling them to work for multinational corporations, while also providing a strong foundation for those who wish to start their own businesses through entrepreneurship training.

The Business Administration Department is a program where practical and theoretical knowledge required to understand a company's general working principles, establish and manage small and medium-sized enterprises, enhance these businesses, and manage large-scale enterprises is acquired. The department facilitates an easy transition for its graduates into the business world by providing the essential knowledge they need throughout their education. In this context, students not only take business department courses but also need to take courses from other departments, such as economics, law, and information systems, to have a broad vision. Over the course of their 4-year undergraduate education, students learn to both master and keep up with technology, aiming to provide a different perspective to the business world by better understanding and implementing new generation practices.
