We wish them all the best. May God speed them on their journey.”
‘Independent and Self-Confident Individuals’
IUE Rector Prof. Dr. Oğuz Esen pointed out that graduating from university was only one part of learning and training process. He said, “Do not ever forget that learning is a lifelong process. Improve your knowledge and skills attainments through post graduate studies.

Knowledge is dead; the school however, serves the living. We tried to raise you as independently acting and thinking individuals away from any kind of dogmatic thoughts. These attributions as well as your diplomas will guide you in business life.”
