Overview

International Trade department was founded in 2005. First time in Turkey, compulsory foreign language courses such as Russian, Chinese and German are taught in the international department. Due to developments in information technologies and rapid changes in the world economy, the need for specialized, interdisciplinary departments has occurred. Therefore a programme that includes specialized topics and closely monitors global competition and international trade movements has been prepared. It is aimed to educate experts who has innovative and competitive point of view and aware of objectives of Turkey’s international trade.

The international trade gains an overwhelming importance as globalization affects the whole world. The need for well educated and qualified manpower also becomes one of the crucial issues. Effective international trade is only possible with a thorought heoretical and practical knowledge of international trade mechanisms, characteristics of international institutions and certain international parameters.

International developments prove that the way to increase welfare of the whole society is possible through trade. In addition to producing quality and low-priced goods, knowledge of international and national trading rules should be improved in order to trade in the best efficient way and this will eventually lead to improvement of the welfare and wealth of the country. In this equation the most important source is the human capital. As a result we need qualified generations who can keep up with changes and developments in international trade business, who can merge their knowledge of world trade with our country’s benefit.
Today, logistics constitutes an important branch of services for companies and supply chains in order to gain advantage in competition around the world. We believe it is a privilege to specialize in such a sector.
