The Finance and Banking Department aims to train future business people, banking and finance professionals and academicians. In addition to the undergraduate education, the graduate-level programs are offered in the Graduate School of Finance.
The Graduate School of Finance is the first and only graduate school in Turkey that offers specialized graduate-level education in areas of expertise such as Finance, Banking, Insurance and Risk Management, and Banking.
The “Branch Simulation and Application Laboratory” software has been developed in cooperation with Vakıfbank so that students could experience an actual banking experience. Faculty members teach the Finance and Banking department courses with senior management experience in the financial sector for many years.
In addition to theoretical classes, our students who strive to improve themselves in Capital Markets can receive training in the BISTLAB laboratory established in cooperation with Borsa Istanbul. They learn and implement various databases and software widely used in the finance sector, such as Reuters Eikon, Matriks and EViews.
With the help of this rigorous training, students can implement capital market and banking practices before they start their business life. In addition, our students are in direct contact with the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce (ITO) and the Financial Sector Committee. In this way, our students can get job and internship opportunities both within ITO and in thousands of distinguished member companies.
Since 2020, the medium of instruction in our department is English.. The main reason behind this decision can be explained by integrating our students to international markets and the provision of a qualified workforce towards the goal of making Istanbul an International Financial Center. The department of Finance and Banking organizes seminars and workshops to ensure that students benefit from the experiences of international researchers and industry professionals.
In addition, our students, who fullfil the necessary conditions, have the opportunity to gain summer school experience in one of the leading universities in finance, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.
We invite all of you interested in the Finance and Banking sectors and aim to improve
