The importance of financial planning for the success of their businesses is well known to entrepreneurs. Financial planning is the process of calculating the capital required for an enterprise and calculating the costs required to realize business plans. Through financial planning, entrepreneurs ensure that their businesses have enough funds to keep their doors open, as well as that their companies have enough income to cover their expenses while making their growth plans. The Department of International Finance aims to provide entrepreneurs with the ability to make this financial planning accurately and realistically with the training they provide in every branch of finance.

There are important criteria that should be considered when choosing the right location for entrepreneurship. The most important of these are tax and incentive rates, public resources available to entrepreneurs, convenience and advantages provided by the location, access to local capital, quality of the workforce and demographic characteristics of the location. Since the importance of these factors will vary in every business field, one cannot expect the best place for entrepreneurship. Thanks to good financial analysis, the contribution of these factors to the success of the enterprise can be calculated and the most appropriate location can be selected.

Entrepreneurship is a skill that can be learned. A person does not have to be born as an entrepreneur to run a successful business. An entrepreneur can be an entrepreneur by developing a mind structure and abilities. Entrepreneurship training enables individuals to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to achieve their goals. The employment rate of people who have entrepreneurship education also increases significantly. We provide this skill and knowledge through hands-on training provided in the International Finance Department.

To become a successful entrepreneur, a certain level of knowledge and skill set is needed. As with any profession, entrepreneurship can be achieved through the right training program. Besides, education at a good university will provide the entrepreneur with the necessary connections in the future. The Department of International Finance, which emphasizes the practice along with theoretical knowledge, provides the financial knowledge and capability that entrepreneurs need.

The University of Entrepreneurship is a university that enables people to channel their creativity accurately, helps to create a business plan with the importance given to implementation, and provides the knowledge and skills that students need to start a business. We fulfill these requirements with the entrepreneurship club of our university, business idea competitions organized within our faculty and the importance our department attaches to applied education.

Although each entrepreneur is unique, experts often refer to four types of entrepreneurs: small business entrepreneurs, scalable startup entrepreneurs, large business entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs. Proper financial planning in line with the initiative is the key to success. The Department of International Finance aims to develop the ability to do financial analysis correctly in a globalized world.

The main focus of applied entrepreneurship training is the creation of a business plan. The most important part of the business plan is the financial plan. An entrepreneur who does not manage his finances is doomed to failure no matter how brilliant his business idea. The knowledge and skills acquired in the corporate finance and financial markets courses provided in our department ensure that this financial plan is made accurately and realistically.

Certified finance and financial literacy trainings provided by our faculty constitute an important basis for the trainings required for the entrepreneurship certificate given by KOSGEB.

Cryptocurrencies and algorithmic trading are innovations from the center of financial markets. It is very important to study International Finance to understand these, to analyze them and to predict their future trends. You can further understand the creation of these innovations by improving your skills in programming languages ​​by using elective courses, minor or double major opportunities in our program.
