As the Graduate School of Business, we aim to prepare our students for a globalizing world with a well-rounded and high-quality education. With our research activities, we strive to extend the frontiers of science and to educate prominent leaders for a sustainable future. Toward this goal, one of our top priorities is to encourage and enhance interdisciplinary work and interactions among economics, business administration and international relations in our education and research programs.

Graduate School of Business is in a distinguished position with our world-renowned faculty, educational and research programs, contributions to scientific advancement and with our ability to educate competent graduates.

Faculty members are among the leading academics in Turkey in terms of publications, citations, TÜBA and TÜBİTAK awards, and funded research projects. Many of our faculty members also conduct research at Koç University-TÜSİAD Economic Research Forum, Migration Research Center, and Center for Research on Globalization, Peace and Democratic Governance (GLODEM), creating high social impact. The interdisciplinary structure of the University and the curriculum that blends theory and practice perfectly and embracing a global perspective fulfills todays and future leaders’ expectations.

Koç University has adopted the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). Educating responsible leaders for a sustainable world is among our most imperative goals. Koç University College of Administrative Sciences and Economics and the Graduate School of Business have become the first and only school in Turkey and its region to receive the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) Accreditation given by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). It is also part of the outstanding CEMS Global Alliance in Management Education, of which only one selected university from each of the 34 different countries is a member. In 2021, Graduate School of Business has also received AACSB Accreditation and with the AMBA Accreditation, we reached a very special and prestigious status, the “Triple Crown”, which is owned by less than 1% of Business Schools in the world.

I invite you to closely examine and learn more about the Koç University Graduate School of Business programs.
