The primary objective of the Koç MBA program is to provide knowledge, insight and skills for future global leaders who will influence changes in organizations and communities they are involved in.

Koç MBA is a post-experience program.
Compared to regular two year MBA, Koç University's 12-month Full Time MBA delivers approximately the same contact hours in a twelve month period with an intense schedule. On the other hand, 24-month Modular MBA provides executives the opportunity to pursue an MBA degree without leaving their job and international students can also attend the program due to its modular structure. The Koç MBA Program offers a world-class education which is consistently recognized as a leading program in Turkey and the region. Both programs provide exclusive career services involving individual career assessment and one-to-one plus group coaching, business simulation group project that will be presented to a board, case based capacity building seminars from executives of prominent companies.
