The objective of our marketing graduate programs is to train intellectually curious individuals in the craft of marketing scholarship. We seek to produce graduates who have the ability and motivation to conduct important, meaningful and impactful research and take positions in leading universities in Turkey and abroad. The program off ers students a broad background in social sciences and in-depth specialization in a particular area of marketing, such as consumer culture theory, consumer decision making, marketing strategy or social marketing.

Our Marketing Ph.D. program integrates a solid analytical training with a scholarly theoretical emphasis. The program is based on four pillars: strong analytics, strong theory, sound research skills, and international experience. International experience entails activities such as a semester or a year abroad and international seminars or conferences at Bilkent and elsewhere and helps future academics get acquainted with the global nature of scholarship and research.

Marketing MS program is also research-focused and aims to equip students with an in-depth knowledge of marketing theory and research for their future careers. Upon completion of the program individuals can continue their education in a marketing Ph.D. program or seek marketing-related positions in companies.
