Purpose

The competence of the department bases on nearly half-century-old experience and knowledge as it accepts undergraduate students since 1976 and also educates in English since 1990. The department, consists of various fields like law, accounting, finance, organizational behavior, marketing, production, management and organization, takes a dynamic and contemporary approach in education. Our purpose is to raise people who are able to ask questions, disposed to learn, open to experience.

It is obvious that management science takes an important role in rapidly changing and developing competitive nature of business world. So, the most important goal of the department is to equip students to adapt to changes, compete daringly, take the initiative, and lead when the time comes. The academic education serves as a basis for this fundamental. Also, developing the communication skills of the students, enhancing teamwork and cooperation among them, improving their analytical thought, and promoting them for innovative behavior are primary objectives of the department.

Structure

The duration of the program is 4 years, except English preparatory class. The program is composed of 65% must and 35% elective courses. In freshman and sophomore years all courses are must, introducing topics of management, organizational behavior, marketing, accounting as well as statistics, mathematics, and law that present a general point of view, a broad way of thinking and a sound theoretical framework. In junior year, 5 courses –out of 12- are electives. Basic subjects like finance and production are compulsory whereas many different subjects like human resources, sales and marketing, quantitative methods, business law, are offered as electives. Finally, in senior year, 11 courses –out of 12- are electives that many courses are offered covering all topics of business administration. Thus, the structure of the program enables every student to select courses satisfying their interest areas or relating to business sectors where they are planning to work. In this way, all students would specialize on particular academic fields and be able to manage their careers before graduation.

Must courses mostly rely on lecturing that provides an academic notion for students. On the other hand, elective courses focus on current and global issues, cases, and, concepts that case studies, company analyses, presentations, group works, and simulations are most frequently used teaching methods. The contents and the contexts of the elective courses play a very important role on developing soft-skills of the students, yet make a world of difference.
