The new agreement gives international students the opportunity to participate in an accelerated, dual-country program offering three and a half years at Kadir Has and one and a half years at Rollins. Students will graduate with both a degree in engineering and an MBA in five years.

“Kadir Has is a dynamic university located in the heart of Istanbul. As one of the leading emerging markets, it has become an economic powerhouse in the region,” said Halil Kiymaz, Ph.d., CFA, Bank of America Professor of Finance for Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business. “This cooperation would help us to internationalize our student body, as well as continue to provide opportunities to our current students for their international immersion courses.”

Participants in this program will engage in virtual seminars prior to arriving at Rollins and will be able to transfer electives easily. Enrollment begins in January 2016.
