The Graduate School of Social Sciences was established in 2001, almost four years after the establishment of our University. In 2001 the Graduate School started education with two masters degree programs, M.A. in Finance & Banking and MBA Program. In the following years, the Graduate School has grown rapidly and the number of programs has reached to 19, four of them are doctoral degrees and fourteen of them are masters programs in different areas of Social Sciences.

Our experienced academic staff is supported with industry professionals in order to transfer the necessary knowledge and real life experience to our students by both theoretical and practical education.
