Dear Alumni,

We are thrilled to share with you the wonderful news from our Graduate School of Business and the College of Administrative Sciences and Economics.

Our first great news comes from Financial Times (FT) rankings, where Koç University Executive MBA program has been ranked 55th, keeping its strong position ahead of many prominent universities around the globe and placing first in Turkey for the last 12 years.

While the pandemic limited physical mobility, it created extensive opportunities for our students and faculty to expand their international contacts in the virtual realm and to enhance our international connectivity. As an institution which greatly values inclusion and diversity, we are also extremely proud about being among the top three institutions in FT rankings in female faculty ratio globally.

Our other great accolade comes from AMBA (Association of MBAs). Koç University Graduate School of Business and College of Administrative Sciences and Economics is reaccredited by AMBA, thus cementing our position as one of the top business schools in Turkey and in the global arena.

We are very excited about our AMBA reaccreditation as this achievement is a manifestation of our quest for excellence in research and teaching, strive for constant improvement, strong international ties, and dedication to educating leaders for a sustainable future. We aim to provide a truly global experience with distinct regional expertise of the highest calibre.

With our AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB accreditations, we are proud to be the first and only academic institution in Turkey to achieve the “Triple Crown” of the three most prestigious accreditations, putting Koç University among less than 1% of business schools globally.

I extend my sincere thanks to our outstanding faculty, administrative personnel, students, and alumni for their valuable contributions to these great achievements in times of drastic change and uncertainty.

Best wishes and regards,

Prof. Şuhnaz Yılmaz Özbağcı
