Rabia Kalmem, 2013 year graduate, Management programme

“Sunny days in Sile campus left unforgettable moments in my memory. I graduated from the Bachelor of Management program in 2013. The university became not only a place of study but also my second home. The diverse student body, strong friendships, and personal growth in the early years were invaluable. I am proud of my university’s accomplishments since I graduated, and I am confident that prospective students, especially those coming from abroad, will feel at home here. Good luck to all those applying to universities now, may you succeed in finding your second home, just as I did”.
