Stating that they have diversified their education programs in colleges, faculties and institutes in order to increase academic diversity and prepare students better for the business world, Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Saim Kılavuz added that “As Bursa Uludağ University administration, we wish to be able to do 'Better' in any field. Despite the changing world and developing technological breakthroughs, we cannot continue to provide the same trainings. Accordingly, we feel the need to update our academic infrastructure and education programs. We strive to open new departments and programs in line with demands from the business world. On the other hand, we want to prepare our students in the best possible way after graduation. With this goal, we wrote to our YÖK Presidency to open 7 new different programs. Our offers have been accepted. Without wasting time, we started preparations for the creation of the necessary infrastructure. In the 2021-2022 academic year, we will have these programs ready and we will start recruiting students. I wish the best for all of us."
