Okan University, one of the youngest and the most dynamic universities of Turkey.
was founded by Okan Culture, Education, and Sports Foundation in 1999 and began its academic life in 2003-2004.
Okan University aims to build a bridge between the academic and the business world. To this end, the university enables students to work at firms as part of its Preparing for Business Life Program, starting from their freshman year. This program not only helps students to become familiar with business life and improve their knowledge and skills by putting theory into practice, but serves to motivate the students as well. Students who have successfully completed the Preparing for Business Life Program are presented with a participation certificate as well as other work experience certifications added to their diplomas when they graduate.
Okan’s vision is to become an excellent university, which contributes to the betterment of the nation and its business life by providing education of the highest standards and thereby preparing its students to enter the modern business world, ensuring that they are open to domestic and foreign competition, and instilling them with social responsibility and environmental consciousness.
Student’s mobility :
- ESB 2nd year students can apply for a mobility semester (S5 or S6) in one of Okan’s Bachelors of Business Administration. Mobility is done based on a learning agreement specifying the transferred credits.
- Symmetrically, student’s mobility from Okan to ESB can be done according to the same process.
- Students on credit mobility pay exclusively their fees at their home university.
- Students who wish to follow a credit mobility and to continue their degree-granting course at the host university will be able to do so according to modalities that remain to be defined.
