Department of Economics aims to instruct individuals who understand global economies, primarily Turkey and its surrounding countries, and who have the ability to use economic theories and concepts in a competent and original way while analyzing existing problems. Students who are included in the Department of Economics Undergraduate Program have the ability to analyze facts in the field of economics with the perspectives and backgrounds gained during their active learning processes. As our students graduate with global qualifications in their fields, they start their careers one step ahead of their competitors thanks to the awareness they receive in the program. The Ibn Haldun University Department of Economics aims to train ‘privileged’ students in small classes, with a special mentoring system, unique training techniques and experienced faculty who have completed their Ph.D.’s in well-known worldwide educational institutions.
The program offers a curriculum based on 8 semesters that includes compulsory courses providing sufficient infrastructure for students in the fields of economics, mathematics, statistics and econometrics, along with a wide range of elective courses in business, sociology, psychology, history, law and politics. In sectorial elective courses, they have a chance to have expertise in areas such as entrepreneurship, real estate, energy, communication, environment, transportation and finance.
While the first year of the program targets to provide the necessary equipment in the field of Social Sciences, the following years of the program are designed in a way that our students are able to follow different paths in economics in line with their career goals. The studies to be carried out in the Research Centers, built under the overall vision of Ibn Haldun University, will be designed in a format in which the undergraduate students can actively participate. Therefore, Economics students are given the opportunity to have a broader experience in studying various subjects, concepts and theories as well as critically analyzing the existing literature in the lessons along with their practices. Provided by the large number of case studies discussed in the lectures and classes, students will be able to establish links between theory and practice in economics.
