PhD Program


Founded in 1999, Sabancı University has already established a reputation as one of the best universities in Turkey, especially due to its strong academic faculty, focus on research and close relationships with industry. Sabancı Graduate Business School provides an intellectually and professionally stimulating environment for doctoral candidates to become internationally renowned scholars.

Our faculty members, committed to the quality of the PhD program, allocate considerable time for the development of their doctoral students. The curriculum is designed so that the students become exposed to alternative research methodologies and topics, yet have the flexibility to explore their own interests. Doctoral students also benefit from the experience of visiting international scholars on campus as well as close collaboration with other SU faculties in terms of teaching and advising research.

In addition, through research seminars at the university, doctoral students become familiarized with the rewards and responsibilities of academic life in terms of teaching, conducting and disseminating state of the art research. With the guidance of the faculty members, students are actively involved in research and provided with opportunities to participate in research/industry projects. Students are financially supported to present their work at national as well as international conferences. Each doctoral student is expected to publish at least one article in an international journal before graduation or present his/her work at internationally recognized academic conferences.
