Graduate School of Social Sciences, which was established in 2001 within the body of Izmir University of Economics, had its first graduates in Spring semester of 2003.
Our Graduate School offers education, research at graduate level and personal development opportunities for those who completed their undergraduate education, and aim to create a difference in a rapidly changing competitive environment.
In an increasing global competitive environment, the institutions are only able to gain relative advantages based on the investments they make on human resources. Therefore, our programs aim to equip the students with accurate knowledge and tools in order to allow them to have a different professional point of view and improved abilities.
Our Graduate School offers adult professionals, who try to keep up with their busy schedule, an instruction plan that provides them with education opportunities at evenings and on weekends. This way, students, who are otherwise engaged in work life, are given a chance to improve themselves.
The Academic staff includes highly qualified lecturers who are experienced in terms of scientific and applied education. Also, by inviting senior employees from public and private sectors who are professional managers that are experts in their fields, our students are given an opportunity to have practical information about implementation.
Our Graduate School, which does not make any compromises about high quality education, proves that quality comes first with the trainings it offers and students graduated. With increasing applications each year, our quality gets stronger.
I would like to congratulate our graduate academicians, whom were trained with a strong background in their area of expertise and now training their own students, for their outstanding success. I also would like to wish continued success to our students.
