Economics

The program leading to the Bachelor's degree in Economics combines training in technical economics with opportunities for a broad and balanced undergraduate education. The program aims to give the students a solid grounding in modern economic theory, to provide a basic descriptive knowledge of the Turkish and world economy, and to develop students' quantitative research skills and independent and critical thinking abilities. Students may select programs that emphasize the relation of technology to economics by concentrating their free electives on science and engineering, or they may select programs which concentrate more heavily on economics, other social sciences and humanities.
