Since its foundation, Koç University has made a commitment to being an academic center of excellence in teaching and research and being recognized worldwide with its students, faculty, educational and research programs. Basic Components of the Success of KOC Executive MBA We believe that the growing reputation of the program is a result of the following factors of success: Top-notch Professional Students Internationally Recognized Faculty Strong Return on Education Investment Rigorous Curriculum Supportive Learning Environment Excellent Resources and State-of-the-art facilities Rigorous Curriculum The Koç Executive MBA curriculum emphasizes the fundamentals of business and management theory: economics, accounting, business strategy, management and decision sciences, finance, marketing, operations management, management information systems, and international business. The result is an MBA graduate with strategic insight, multi-functional expertise, a global perspective, and the analytical and informational skills required of a world-class business leader. The program combines a rigorous theoretical and analytical approach with practical and conceptual tools. Koç University has based its educational program on the principle of "creative teaching/participatory learning". The faculty use a variety of teaching methods. These include case analysis, role playing, written and oral presentations, model-building exercises and computer as well as management simulations. Some classes use the more traditional lecture and discussion methods. Each faculty member is encouraged to adopt the style that works best given course objectives, the nature of the material, and the instructor’s own preferences. Students are expected to participate actively in class discussions, make presentations, write papers and complete assignments individually as well as in group projects. Cases are used frequently to improve problem diagnosis, analysis, and creative problem-solving skills. Most cases describe complex, real organizational issues. Harvard Business School, INSEAD, Kellogg, Babson College and Darden cases are used in the program, in addition to the cases developed by Koç University faculty members. Leading executives frequently visit the school to make class presentations based on their own experiences. In classes and in project work groups, students discuss their own managerial problems and opportunities.
