Our main mission is to bring together faculty members with different kinds of expertise and experience in the private, public, and academic sectors to offer the very best training to the next generation of managers, academics and researchers. Our highest priority is to produce students who after their time at Boğaziçi will continue to aim for the top in intellectual activity and scientific research in the private and public sectors. The basis of our educational philosophy, then, is to teach our students in a way that encourages them to discover and research new information beyond what is given, and without being confined to narrow stereotypes. This means raising our students to be their own individuals, while also acculturating them to life in professional society, so that they learn to respect differences, be socially responsible, sensitive to the natural environment, and to do so with the highest ethical standards. This will adapt them to the global business and scientific environment, which prizes social, communication, and critical-thinking skills beyond the ability to recite technical information.
