Postgraduate diploma (or higher)
Students need the original of the Postgraduate Diploma. The institution which has issued the diploma must be recognised by the Council of Higher Education in Turkey. The student is responsible for making sure that the institution is recognised in Turkey. For that the student can apply for the recognition in the Ministry of Education of the Turkish Republic and attach the proof of recognision to the application. If the student does no apply for the recognition then Dogus University will send the institution information to the Ministry of Education of the Turkish Republic for the recognition. In case the institution will not pass the recognition the student’s registration will be cancelled.

The aim of the Financial Economy Doctorate Program is to raise young scientists and researchers who:
• have a good command of mathematical research methods and financial econometrics,
• can follow theoretical literature,
• can analyse and interpret development in national and international financial systems and interactions between real and financial sectors,
• can offer scientific solutions which increase efficiency in the financial management of real sector companies and every kind of financial institution.
In our country there is a great need for finance academicians who have the above-mentioned qualities. While in western countries, a significant number of economists with Nobel Prizes have been awarded this prize because of their contributions to finance theory, in Turkey, it is still accounting-finance departments that dominate. However, efficient financial management requires a powerful economy, mathematical modelling with statistical and economical infrastructure much more than accounting. For this reason Doğuş University opened the department of Finance and Economy for the first time in Turkey and right after that it established the Financial Economics MA programme. The need for lecturers who have this formation will increase in future.
In addition, the requirement for specialists is also increasing in the field of application. In the past students who chose to stay for a doctorate degree wanted to continue their education at universities, whereas now, there is an increase in the number of researchers with doctorate degrees who work in public and private sectors. This is a natural result of the information era.
