Professional MBA

Curriculum

MBA programs are designed to teach you to manage customers (marketing), production of goods and services (operations), money (finance), people (organizational behavior), direction (strategy) and change (innovation and leadership).

The Professional MBA covers these topics using a schedule that is ideal for young professionals who are at the early stages of their careers by having classes mainly on Friday nights and full day Saturdays over 12 months.

Each course starts on a Friday evening and continues Saturday all day, for four weekends. After attending a single course and finishing it in four weeks, you start a new course.  This is a totally new and innovative concept in weekend learning allowing to concentrate on a single course at any given time, while working full-time.

A main building block of the program requiring students to take only one course at any given time. Team work, assignments, and all your attention is focused on a single course. At the fifth week, you take the final exam, and after that you start another course.

While we are interviewing you at the acceptance phase of the program, we will give our individual recommendations to you for the best points of concentration for you, depending on your previous education, experience and future targets. This concentration can be achieved through the elective courses and the project elective (“Company Action Project” – CAP). CAP allows you to concentrate on a specific project at your own company. We will expect you to choose an “advisor” from your company for the project and assign you an Academic Advisor. With the support of these advisors you will be able to increase your knowledge and experience in an area that you choose.

Absorbing all the knowledge provided to you in the MBA program, making the best use of the opportunities for sharing experiences with your classmates while being employed full-time requires a highly intense tempo, which in turn requires a strong motivation.

That is why we believe PMBA is the right program for professionals who have ambitious targets, plans to take on more responsibility at work and willing to work really hard.  If you have two to five years of work experience, a proven professional track-record, a good command of English, and realized that to take on more responsibility you need to invest in yourself, then you are the “IDEAL CANDIDATE” for the PMBA program.

Courses are either 1.5 or 3 credits. Company Action Project is an elective course with 4.5 credits.  Zero credit project course is a requirement of the Turkish Higher Education Council (YÖK) for all non-thesis masters’ programs in Turkey.
