In the light of accelerating technological change, globalisation and increasing international competition, comprehending economic phenomena and overcoming economic problems becomes more and more important. The role of economics and economists is widening and penetrating new areas of social relations.
The goal of the Department of Economics is to promote a thorough understanding of the economic problems of our time and to develop the research skills of the students. Particular emphasis is placed on equipping students with skills in the use of mathematical and statistical tools as well as basic theories. Our target, however, is at the same time to ensure that our students acquire all the personal attributes demanded by the new global economy.
We believe that our graduates will be able to play an important role in any institution and in any sector, not only in Turkey, but also at the international level.
