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.

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!
