Message from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees

Behind every achievement there is a story, and Beykoz University has one as well. This story started to be written with the foundation of TURLEV (Turkish Logistics Studies and Educational Foundation) in 2007 and continued with the establishment of a higher education institution as a result of our motivation of training qualified human resource.

Beykoz Vocational School of Logistics was brought into being by TURLEV in 2008. As the first “thematic vocational school” in Turkey, until 2016, Beykoz Vocational School of Logistics graduated 2.500 people, who had the logistical competency and we are proud of our graduates who takes part in various levels of the logistics sector, today.Henceforward, Beykoz Vocational School of Logistics will continue to educate new generations, who are expected to be the best in their fields, and preserve its thematic structure under the roof of Beykoz University at the same time.

Now our story goes forward with the establishment of “Beykoz University”. Beykoz University aims to produce well equipped graduates who will meet the requirements of business world and our country, who are capable of representing their country by being employed abroad as well. For sure, knowledge is going to be the most important power source in the future, just as it is now. As Beykoz University, our main aim is to focus on applied training which will help to orientate our students to initial vocational areas and encourage them to grow into creative, modern and critical individuals who can adapt easily to ever-changing global conditions.

We believe in the necessity of improving physical conditions in order to fulfil our aims as well. Our University already continues its activities in three different, modern buildings in Beykoz, which is one of the most beautiful and historical districts of Istanbul. We are going to complete our investments within the next three years and build a distinctive campus on a land of 80 acres in Beykoz. By 2019, we will have moved all departments and faculties of our university to this campus. Our campus was chosen among a wide range of architectural projects and when it is finished, it will embody all kinds of facilities that students might need, such as institutions, laboratories, social, cultural and sports areas, library and dormitories.

Dear students,

I gladly invite you to Beykoz University; a young, dynamic university that wants to make a difference. Come and join us to make your dreams come true. Let us be a part of your life story.

Best Regards…
