One of the main advantages of studying at İstanbul Bilgi University Public Relations Program was, to get the chance to experience the practical side of the theories that the public relations discipline is built on. The courses that the students take during their four-year education was specially conducted in a way for the students to get real life experiences on the profession. Today in my professional life, the success of most of the projects I manage are rooted in my educational background at BİLGİ. Creative and innovative skills I gained at İstanbul Bilgi University helped me to adapt easily to the work environment in public relations agencies. In my opinion İstanbul Bilgi University Public Relations Program is the best option for student candidates who want a successful career in the communication sector.
