When I first came to Istanbul and started at BAU 3 years ago , I was unsure about my future and anxious about the challenges I was going to face like the language barrier and cultural differences.. But Bahcesehir University gave me the support and confidence to grow both personally and professionally because of its very caring, homely and diverse environment.
apart from my study, I have been involved with various activities such as being the Head of event organization in the bahcesehir international student’s committee club (BISC)- which I was previously a part of as the Egyptians representative – as well as my work in the university’s international student’s office where I use my academic and professional skills to improve current and newly registered students lives by answering their frequently asked questions whenever I can.
I am grateful to all my BAU professors , colleagues and friends who I now call FAMILY .
Internship programs, which our department emphasizes, have been established with domestic and foreign companies. Our department analyzes the industry’s needs and educates students to fulfill them by providing internships and career opportunities to our students through its partnerships and connections.
Also, our students are presented with opportunities to meet successful owners of public relations agencies face-to-face and to learn from them. To support our connections with non-governmental organizations, agencies, and businesses within the industry, our fourth-year students make presentations to these companies by preparing projects and demonstrating their uses and values. These projects often win awards at many competitions, including TUHID and the AYDIN DOĞAN Young Communication Professionals Competition after receiving evaluation from experts in their own fields.
Our graduates can work as brand managers and public relations experts in advertising agencies, public relations companies, media planning and buying companies, political parties, non-governmental organizations, in-house agencies, and in many other enterprises. Our graduates can also find career/job opportunities in national and international corporations as public relations or strategic communications specialists.
