‘Pedalling for excellence’
Ekrem Demirtaş, President of IUE Board of Trustees, stated that success of Izmir University of Economics was not a coincidence, and that it was a university improving constantly and working hard to catch up to the future. President Demirtaş stated the following:
“We were dreaming of a student-focused university that would offer education in a foreign language, train enterprising and innovative graduates, reverse the brain drain with their progress. As we are realizing our dreams, our accomplishments come in one after the other. URAP report is an outcome of a collective work by our academicians, staff, and students. If Izmir University of Economics is among the first 500 universities worldwide today, if ranking in first or 6th places in 3 categories in Turkey makes us swollen with pride, it’s all because of our unstoppable perfectionism and stepping on the gas harder. We’ve been honoured by these accomplishments but this only enthuses us even more to work harder. Soon we will be breaking the ground for Bilimpark. We will continue to progress with sure steps for excellence.”
