Uzaktan eğitimde, gururla söylüyorum ki farkımızı ortaya koyduk. I proudly say that we stood out as a university in distance education. Before the pandemic, we have already renewed our university in line with the demands of our students. We offered many opportunities such as guaranteed internship and uninterrupted scholarship to our students. The research results also showed us that we have taken the right steps.”
CAMPUS WITH 8 LANGUAGES

As Izmir University of Economics, we have made all our technological moves and planning for the next 50 years accordingly, we have created our academic staff based on that. We will continue to work to raise young people who are equipped with our innovative vision, and to add value to our country.”
