Welcome to the Department of Economics
Having admitted its first students in 2014-15 academic year, our department aims to take one of the first rankings in both research and teaching in the country.
Our faculty consists of dynamic and qualified scientists, each of whom having degrees from international institutions. Using the latest methods and technology we aim to prepare our students to become leaders in the national and international arena by providing them the necessary background and qualifications
Thanks to the flexibility in course selection and course variety, our students will not only be able to enrich their course program by taking courses in fields other than Economics, but also will be able to complete the 4-year 240 ECTS Bachelor education in 3 years. In addition, our department offers 3+2 degree programs with leading universities resulting in a Bachelor degree from MEF and a Master’s degree in Economics or Finance from a global partner.
