Thanks to the rich education I received from my professors at BİLGİ Organizational Psychology MA Program from which I graduated in 2020, I have had the chance to combine theory and practice. I believe that I have improved my competencies by realizing the areas that I can improve on the way to my dreams. I can also say that the valuable professional relations that I have established during my MA education at BİLGİ provided me with the necessary social support while shaping my career.

The educational formation that is provided by its distinguished academic staff thanks to their one-to-one care has always helped me with my career. The educational model that is based on thinking not memorizing, on questioning not accepting, and on discovering not transferring enables BİLGİ to raise not only good jurists but also good people. Business Law MA Program, which brings together theory and practice ideally, has changed my perspective with regard to everyday issues.

The day I came to BİLGİ Open Days, I met with Feride Çiçekoğlu and we went to the Anatolian side together. I would have never guessed back then that this journey would last this long. I actually realized how strong I became after my graduation from this department where we learned to look at cinema with the ability of reaching to an objective world promise while approaching our subjectivity. As soon as I graduated, I founded a production company and I have been trying to make room for the undergraduate students of my department by working together with them. I would like to thank the valuable professors of my department who accompanied me in my adventure to embrace a brand new field after I had decided to discontinue my doctoral studies in Economics during the process of writing my thesis without feeling any void.

I am a graduate of İstanbul Technical University’s Department of Mathematics Engineering. I graduated from İTU by acquiring a real engineering perspective. After I worked in the field of IT for a few years, I wanted to gain experience in business management. For this reason, I became a part of bilgiMBA Program. In this way, I realized that very different concepts other than engineering were quite important in organizations. This awareness provided me with a very different point of view and my MBA experience helped me quite a lot in the professional life. While I used to look at things from a purely technical aspect prior to MBA, I have begun to see the different dimensions after MBA.

The courses that I took at İstanbul Bilgi University helped me write the books that I have always wanted to write and publish them.
I learned to write from the heart from Feride Çiçekoğlu and scenario techniques from Öktem Başol. These days, I have been working on turning my second published book Kara Köpek into film.

What differentiates BILGI Master and Ph.D. programs from others?
I believe our focus is on academic research. We host many prominent economists, domestic and international, as well as alumni with a background in top schools, to provide students with the required skills for a successful academic career. Students both enjoy and benefit immensely from this experience.

BİLGİ MBA believes an educational model that depends solely on information transfer has no place in today’s world. Our students gain experience not just with the knowledge they acquire but also with the networks they create, the projects they conduct, and the discussions they participate in and they try to maximize the value that they will add to the world as individuals.
