Accounting and Auditing


The recent global economic crisis and the resulting changes in regulations and increasing financial scrutiny have led to an overall increase in demand for accountants and auditors. In Turkey, the new Commercial Code will be effective from July, 2012. The new Code requires firms to follow International Financial Reporting Standards. Furthermore, thousands of firms which have followed a simple system of accounting hitherto are now required to undergo internal and external auditing. The Department of Management working together with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, one of the world's leading auditing firms, has developed a curriculum responding to the needs of not only Turkey but also the global economy. The program provides a solid foundation of economics and management in the first two years. In the following years, the objective of the program is to give students a good grasp of accounting, finance, auditing, information systems, law, and tax system in an international framework.
