Turks’ interest in MBA programs abroad growing

19 October 2010, Tuesday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
Every year an increasing number of students from Turkey go abroad to get an MBA degree, where the cost can range between $25,000 to $100,000 for two years. Expenditure on MBAs and education abroad reached $100 million last year, and the figure is still growing.
Universities in Turkey have also been gradually announcing their MBA programs. There is significant competition between US and Turkish universities to draw as many students as possible to their MBA programs. So representatives from MBA programs in the US arrive in Turkey each year to promote their programs. In this respect, the website www.studyinamerica.com promoted an event in İstanbul on Oct. 9, which was attended by 2,000 applicants.

Deans from these schools provided attendees with detailed information about their MBA programs. Students also had the opportunity to meet with the deans and chat individually with them. Founder and president of StudyInAmerica.com Tamer Türkman said: “This organization is unique in the world. This is not just a panel. This is a meeting where students and deans discuss the MBA and its benefits to students. This is the only event in the world that brings students together with the world’s best MBA programs.”
