Doç. Dr. Deniz Dilara DereliDear gradute student candidates,

We aim to provide researchers with four different programs in postgraduate education as Istanbul Kültür University Department of Economics. Our programs; Managerial Economics (with and without Thesis), Monetary and Capital Markets (with and without Thesis), Production Economics (without Thesis) and International Economics and Finance (with and without Thesis). As the Department of Economics, we have a principle where theoretical knowledge is fed by practical applications in education. We strongly believe that it is substantial for the candidates participating in the program to have strong academic goals and investigative and questioning features. Today, the graduate education has become an imperative in the competitive conditions, thus this leads to a variety of alternatives in this regard. As The Department of Economics, we provide a rich variety of course contents with a dynamic academic staff.
