“Sabancı MBA has been the biggest and most successful investment for myself. I graduated from Middle East Technical University Mechanical Engineering department and I never planned to work as an engineer after graduation. Therefore, I looked for top MBA schools in Turkey and decided to start Sabancı MBA program after a detailed search. Company Action Projects, exchange opportunities and top-tier professor pro les are among my reasons of choosing Sabancı MBA.Immediately after my graduation from Sabancı MBA, I was offered afull-time position in P&G which was my dream company. I would like to thank all stakeholders in Sabancı MBA who made my dreams come true. Sabancı MBA will always be a milestone in my life.”

Özkan Özer (Class of 2016) 

“After winning a marketing case competition during my bachelor’s at METU, I had been awarded an education scholarship at Sabancı MBA. I knew that Sabancı MBA was a great opportunity to improve myself in business related areas on top of my degree in engineering. 16 months have passed at Sabancı MBA and I have realized that it offers much more than anyone has expected. Firstly, the curriculum has taken me further in various fields of business. The first year was packed with courses and coursework. The exceptionally qualified faculty and specific Sabancı style of the courses have provided a very fruitful education. Sabancı MBA supports students' careers both during and after their tenure. Through many sessions with our career counselor, I was able to clearly define my career goals and take action. Sabancı MBA also an invaluable experience for any MBA student. During the program’s third semester we get the opportunity to practice our theoretical education at a top tier company. I’ve had the chance to conduct my Company Action Project (CAP) at Microsoft and learn about their inner dynamics/culture.”

"Sabancı MBA program was an enlightening experience. We learned the latest practices in management science from the best professors in Turkey. In addition to the wide variety of courses, our managerial skills were strengthened by the workshops arranged in many different subjects including time management, networking and negotiation. We also had the chance to apply our knowledge in our Company Action Projects and get the hands on experience in the fields we want to specialize, rather than just learning the theories. I am glad to be a part of this experience, and have the competitive advantage of being a Sabancı MBA graduate."

"It is my belief that two of the most important components of success are continuous learning and awareness of the environment. Graduates of any educational institution will be successful to the extent that that institution imparts these capabilities in their students. I have benefited greatly from the Sabancı MBA program. The program’s educational vision, practical orientation and quality of both faculty and students have contributed to my development and subsequent career."




Igor Petrusca  (Class of 2014)

“The distinguishing factor that set Sabanci MBA apart and influenced my decision to apply for it was its hands-on, practice and business-oriented character. The Company Action Project (CAP), which is a requirement for graduation, helped me enhance my business acumen by being a part of a team that designed, developed and implemented a project in a multinational company. In this way, I could put in practice the lessons learned in classroom and draw a parallel between theory and practice. By taking an active role in MBA Club activities, participating in the organized workshops and company visits, I was provided the opportunity to interact directly with the leading figures from the business circle, which provided me with the one thing you cannot find in business books - a large network. These factors proved decisive when I received a job opportunity from the American company Pfizer, where I was working on my CAP and where I have been working since then.”

"As Turkcell CAP Team, we were working on the "Increasing the penetration rate of Green Bills (E-Bill & SMS-Bill)" Project. This was a top priority marketing project for Turkcell. My CAP experience at Sabancı provided me and my team with the opportunity to gain a valuable first hand experience in the telecommunication industry by taking an active role in real, day-to-day business life. Collaborating with different departments expanded both our vision and our business networks. My Turkcell CAP experience was definitely a milestone in my professional career."

"What we (the students, the company staff, and I) experienced during CAP was as real-life a work-experience as one can get! In my 30 years plus of industry experience, I worked with many teams on diverse projects such as new techology development or starting new businesses. The Sabanci CAP experience for the students had many similar challenges, and I was pleased to see them wade through the uncertainties and the hurdles to converge on a business plan that, in my opinion, is practical and executable, as it is very much in line with the vision of the company managers they worked with.

“One of the main motivations I had when applying to Sabancı University MBA program was the chance to study at MIT during the second year. I was lucky to be admitted to MIT. Before going to MIT, I knew that it is definitely a privilege to be part of this ecosystem. However after a few months, I can easily say that it exceeded my expectations with its world renowned academic staff, course structure, and unlimited number of opportunities outside the classroom. This experience is worth a lifetime.  As an Industrial Engineering graduate from Sabancı University, and also current MBA student, I can say that I was given necessary education and experience to cope with every kind of difficulty at MIT, and I want to say thank you to all my professors and the staff at Sabancı University who encouraged me throughout the process and make this dream come true."

Okan Balaban  (Sabancı MBA & MIT Zaragoza ZLOG Dual Degree, Class of 2013)

"When I first came to Zaragoza to start my one-year journey in MIT-Zaragoza Logistics program, I had mixed feelings.  Now, after surviving 4.5 months, I see that this experience is unique and one that I will value forever. During past 4.5 months, I learned so many new things that have prepared me for my future career. I have so many different friends from all around the world that I enjoy studying and having fun. There were times that I was under enormous stress and pressure due to high course load and unending projects. Nevertheless, as time passes and I leave each of them behind, I see that they prepare me for real business world and all of them can be handled with necessary motivation. Furthermore, living in a city that hardly speaks English, I improved my personal and language skills."



Selin Yaman (Class of 2017)

“Last summer I participated MBA Exchange program in EM Lyon Business School. It was a wonderful experience for me. Although it was a short time period exchange program, it provided me many good opportunities in order to improve my skills. I took 2 main classes: Entrepreneurship and Global Business Environment. Classes were given by highly experienced Professors. All classes offer practical information as well as theoretical knowledge. Also, I involved in several activities designed to foster experiential learning while allowing me to make friends, discover the region, and interact with the local entrepreneurs. We also held a 2 company visits which helped me to observe working conditions in another country. The best part of the program was, all my classmates were also exchange students from all over the world. So, they were not local students and it was so easy to make friendships. I am still in contact with friends that I met in Lyon. In addition, most of the class activities were done in teams. This also helped me to improve my team-work skills.” 



Mehrdad Barghi (Class of 2016)

“Sabancı MBA program not only gives you the opportunity to learn business world but also provides more opportunities to go beyond the learning and experience more of it. Exchange program is one of the unique advantages which can change your life. My choice was Europe to experience both life and academic life there. I had chance to take courses both in EMLYON business school and Copenhagen Business School. Taking European business environment course in Lyon and Internet Business Models broadened my view to business in Europe and E-Businesses. It was not just reading and studying. I traveled a lot in Europe and I had unforgettable moments." 


Melis Yiğit (Class of 2016)

“Sabancı University MBA program offers many occasions for students to add value to their future. An exchange opportunity in one of outstanding business schools of the student’s choice is one of them. In advance of the experience, MBA program coordinators and SU Outgoing Students department provide any elaborative and intimate information that students might need. My preference was for ESCP Europe in Paris among all the partner institutions. I wished to study at ESCP as an exchange student because it was the world’s rst business school, founded in 1819. In addition to embracing notable and highly experienced professors in Master in Management program, ESCP provides a wide range of interesting management courses. ESCP presented me the chance to study alongside students from a vast range of backgrounds in a highly multicultural and international environment. Apart from taking the courses of my interest, I attended various post-school activities organized by the program or ESCP students. In addition to having a great fun and experiencing the real Parisian lifestyle, I seized an invaluable opportunity to improve my managerial knowledge and skills, gain precious insights and develop a global perspective.” 



Muhammad Naved (Class of 2014)

“One of the highlights of the MBA program at Sabanci University was an opportunity to go for an exchange semester. Sabanci offers liberty to choose from one of the best universities across regions including Asia, Europe and the Americas. I chose University of Florida as my option since not only the university is very recognized Florida also offers one of the world best white sand beaches. UF is one of the largest universities in US in terms of student body and size and there are endless resources for recreation and research. The faculty is very knowledgeable and the university offered Bloomberg terminals which helped in one of the entrepreneurship consulting project I undertook as coursework. Gainesville is primarily a student town with many amnesties for students. The two wheeler scooter is the most common mode of transport and one can rent it on a semester package and commute easily through campus and town. Downtown is happening and there is plenty to do in the weekends and visiting the botanical gardens is a must. I really want to thank Sabancı for giving me this opportunity to study and travel.”

 “An overseas educational experience had always been one of my goals. As being part of the Sabancı MBA Exchange Program, I catch a chance to pursue my long lasting aim at the University of Florida. All the courses I took during the exchange program helped me build strong professional skills that would follow me during my business career. One of such examples would be the “Entrepreneurial Consulting Project”, in which we, as a team of four, we were challenged to develop a complete business plan and present it to a panel of invited venture practitioners.  In addition to the academic inputs, exchange experience helped me in getting familiar with different cultures, and enhanced my communication skills."

"I attended summer exchange program at ESCP Europe in Paris, France. It was such a memorable experience that I faced real diversity and tasted Paris in the summer. ESCP is one of the most reputable business schools in France, so courses are well instructed and quite beneficial for future career of any business school student. Besides the academic advantages provided, there are also positive social effects of attending this kind of program. I have taken classes with different people from different nations and cultures, I have now friends from Cameroon, Hungary, Tunisia, Germany, etc. Moreover, Paris is one of the best places to be in during the summer, ESCP campus is located in the middle of the city center."
