The new global business era of borderless business relations demands a new set of managerial competencies. Okan University Business Administration Doctorate Program, having revised its programs accordingly, offers a rich selection of concentration areas in order to meet the unique career needs of our students. Our world-class faculty members from diverse backgrounds provide a balance of theory and practice in the execution of the curriculum.
We strive to instill exceptional managerial competencies in the diverse group of students coming from the Istanbul Business District and from other parts of Turkey as well as from international corporations. International summer programs are also offered to our Business Ph.D. students to expand their vision and knowledge base via global exposure.
Okan University strives continuously to further the development of knowledge both nationally and internationally with its high-quality student-centered education, accredited programs, and its research centers. True to its motto, “Leader in University-Business Cooperation”, Okan University effectively combines theory and practice by employing distinguished academic staff and inviting expert professionals to lecture the students to prepare them for successful careers. In close cooperation with various business sectors, the university has developed curricula and internship programs for its students to enhance their employability skills.
We place great emphasis on developing “learning to learn” skills of our students to equip them with the ability to stay competitive in their careers. Strategic, innovative, systems and critical thinking schemes are essential components of our curriculum, providing broad managerial competencies as well as the required tools, techniques and resources for our students to succeed in the global world of business.
We would like our students to consider Okan University Business Ph.D. as an investment to gain a competitive professional edge and enjoy a successful career life. Our evening and weekend classes are designed to facilitate time management of a professional life combined with graduate education.
