You have been a very competitive and ambitious student throughout your academic life. You graduated from a top engineering, law, social science, or medical school. During your first job or traineeship, it dawned upon you that you need to develop a critical set of managerial skills and business knowledge to eventually resume leadership positions. You might be working in the defense industry writing code for a highly-classified project, but you increasingly find yourself drawn to a consulting role about effective implementation of technology in business environments. If you are ready to get out of your comfort zone, and handle the challenges of being in a constant learning and development cycle, then you are an ideal candidate for the Bilkent MBA!
