Business Administration Master's Program (with Thesis)
Our masters programs in Business Administration (MBA) and in Marketing Management (M.Sc.) open to graduates from all academic backgrounds. The MBA program traditionally lasts for three semesters (usually slightly more with thesis option) and the Marketing masters lasts for two semesters (usually slightly more with thesis option). Depending on your background, however, a semester of foundation courses may be necessary prior to or together with your regular courses. We strongly encourage applicants aiming to continue to Ph.D. to choose a master program with thesis option. Conversely, we advise applicants aiming to work in industry to choose a program without thesis. Applicants to with thesis programs are advised to apply early and to strengthen their application portfolio by including evidence on research skills and language proficiency.
MBA (in Turkish language)
Popular with working professionals and some of our Turkish students is our MBA program (İşletme Yönetimi) offered in evenings in Turkish language in off-campus facilities in the capital city of Nicosia (Lefkosa). It also has thesis and non-thesis alternatives and is similar in duration and content to our traditional MBA program in English language.
MBA and Marketing masters programs are open to applicants from all academic backgrounds with academic CGPA above 2.5 out of 4.00 or its equivalent.
