YTU Department of Economics

Our department's goal is to be an economics department that produces students who are strong in both social and mathematical aspects, capable of conceptualizing and solving economic problems, able to establish cause and effect relationships and think analytically, and specialized in their fields. We prioritize international publications and collaborations, and strive to follow both theoretical and current developments in economics education.

Message from the Head of Department

Dear Students,

Yıldız Technical University (YTU), one of the most distinguished universities in Turkey, has a history of more than a hundred years. The Department of Economics is one of the oldest departments of our university.

YTU Department of Economics:

• aims to equip students with a proficient knowledge that can be used in both national and international competitive labor markets,

• implements a high standard, flexible and dynamic curriculum in which both qualitative and quantitative solutions to economic problems are discussed.

In addition, within the scope of Erasmus activities, many of our students find the opportunity to spend part of their education in other European universities every year. In addition, by taking courses from other departments, by doing a double major or minor, our students are provided with the opportunity to access information in other fields of interest. In addition, the events organized bring together respected people from the academy and the business world, ensuring the transfer of knowledge and experience.

As a result, our main goal is to equip you with skills that can both understand and interpret rapidly changing economic conditions and find better solutions to economic and social problems.

Prof. Dr. Murat Anıl MERCAN
Head of Department
