As a family, we believe in free thought; diversity; agility; collective mind; positive student experience; and fair, transparent and reliable managerial mindset.

We are glad to mentor our students in their journey towards becoming an individual and a global citizen, who realise their own dreams, support their continuous development and look forward to co-producing with them.

BAU is a leading university representing Turkish higher education in the world with its over 25 thousand students, 20% of which are international, over 30 thousand alumni all over the world, over 1000 faculty members, over 500 staff, 5 campuses in Istanbul and thousands of national and international collaborations with universities and business as the flagship of BAU Global network.
