Istanbul Kemerburgaz University is the most comprehensive and prestigious project Mehmet Altınbaş Education and Culture Foundation presents to our country. I believe that our University will have a prominent place among the respected higher education institutions of Turkey.
Making a difference by adding value to individuals and to society requires the possession of extraordinary qualities. We always placed great value on humanity, education, knowledge, productivity, and our national interests. In fact, I believe that these concepts should prevail in the entire Turkish education system. For this reason, we set off on a journey to enable a confident and entrepreneurial youth with high ethical values and a global outlook, to leave a permanent imprint and create a significant difference in our country and all over the world.
In order to apply our vision in the education of our youth that is the future of our county, we make significant research investments to create and disseminate knowledge in addition to recruiting an academic staff with exceptional qualifications. Our aim is to create an environment where diversity of opinions, creativity, curiosity, and the desire for academic research are nourished. We have observed over the years that university graduates have a difficult time to adapt to the business world. Additionally, we have noticed that while academics make remarkable efforts in the creation of knowledge, they tend to have a difficult time to stay close to its practice.
In the light of all of the above, I believe that the most important concepts in an educational institution should be “vision, mission, culture, values”, and perhaps most importantly, “success in practice”. As I stated above, I am aware that a university is where knowledge is created; the academic staff and students are the ones who would carry its practice to real life.
Our most important goal is to produce well-equipped graduates from Istanbul Kemerburgaz University, who are capable of representing our country in their respective fields, in the best manner possible.
I wish all the success to the Istanbul Kemerburgaz University family and its prospective students as they prepare for their academic life.
