Program Description

The mission of the Department of Economics is to introduce students to Economics and provide them with an understanding of today’s modern economy as it exists both in Turkey and in the greater world giving space for discussions of contemporary theories in economics, doing interdisciplinary research that pushes the boundaries of economics supported by a philosophy which emphasizes the interactions of both social and natural sciences, and sharing our academic findings with the greater community.

Our main goal is to be recognized as one of Turkey’s five best economic departments. To this aim both the quality of education we give and the contributions of our research to the greater academic community are important. In the short and mid-term, our goal is that each member of our teaching faculty publish at least one article every other year in journals listed on the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI).
