You are not obliged to participate in a master program restricted with space and time in order to reach the information that will improve yourself. BILGI e-MBA Program, which was founded in the early 2000s at Istanbul Bilgi University, is a valuable alternative for anyone who wants to improve themselves from anywhere in the world for 12 years.


This BILGI e-MBA program from Istanbul Bilgi University has been developed especially for candidates living out of Istanbul, those working with an intensive travel program or for those facing difficulties to stick to the course hours even though they live in Istanbul.

The e-MBA program of Istanbul Bilgi University is offered both in English and in Turkish and comprises three different sections. The program can be completed within 3 semesters. The program is made up 5 core courses and 5 elective courses and a final project.

In Distant Online e-MBA Program, which is identical to regular MBA in terms of lecture quality and content, the courses are delivered in an interactive online setting, where all participants join in a single session as microphones muted and start learning from live-stream lectures by our academicians and professors through BILGI Learn. In these sessions, as one of the students, you can click on ‘’raise hand’’ fields to ask questions through instant messaging and receive immediate response to your inquiries. There is a planned schedule for live-stream lecture sessions to take place however, if you your personal schedule doesn’t fit the course calendar, you can view the recorded versions in order not to miss out.

No attendance needed

The advantage of the e-MBA program is to provide the students a platform to study without physically being present in a classroom. The students are only required to attend the final exams held at the end of every semester.

Students are responsible for preparing a final project with the assistance of academic staff. The purpose of the project is to provide the student an opportunity to carry out in-depth study on a topic s/he is interested in along with gaining research experience. The student works on the project for one semester, under the supervision of a project guide. Project is assessed with either a fail (“F”) or a pass (“P”) grade and this does not affect the final grade point average.
