All members of Bilkent University Faculty of Business feel deeply sorry about the untimely loss of Professor Hüseyin Leblebici on October 4, 2017.
Professor Leblebici was a Professor of Business Administration and Merle H. and Virginia Downs Boren Professor at Illinois University at Urbana Champaign. He was also an honor member of the Turkish Academy of Sciences.
Professor Leblebici had close links with our faculty. He was a long time friend of Bilkent Faculty of Business Administration, first as a visiting professor during his sabbatical leave, then as a member of the Advisory Board to Executive MBA program which he helped to build. As a prominant scholar in his field, Professor Leblebici generously provided collegial supports to our faculty and he was an inspiration for many at the Business school. We will always remember him with his caring personality, deep sense of humor and above all his solid scholarship.
We extend our condolences to the members of his family and colleagues.
