Message from the Dean
Manisa Celal Bayar University Faculty of Economics and
Administrative Sciences has been founded upon a vision to produce path-breaking
ideas with lasting impact on the theory and practice of economics, management,
public administration, industrial relations and most recently, international
relations and political science. Our faculty has trained generations of
successful business people who have helped shape the world of business on local
and national scales. We define our mission as a commitment to create knowledge
with enduring impact; and to influence and educate current and future opinion
and business leaders.
We move forward in this mission of relentless pursuit of
excellence and rigor and to stand above, we must continue to stand apart.
Our vision for the school focuses on five areas:
Consolidate and expand the scholarly track of the school. To
do this, Celal Bayar University FEAS must strengthen the faculty even more. As
the school broadens, it will need to be more audacious in acquiring talent,
attracting the most inquisitive and competitive as well as cooperative and
globally-thinking students and the most critical-minded intellectuals.
Support and leverage impact and influence, by supporting research
centers and project initiatives, better dissemination of our social and intellectual
capital, and expanding regular degree programs to encompass Distance Education,
Executive programs and Non-Thesis Degree programs.
Support a broader set of student aspirations, ranging from economics
to social entrepreneurship, expanding their choices across all the degree programs.
This requires curricular innovation in both content and form, including
experiential courses and courses on emerging and most contemporary topics.
Attract an even broader pool of future leaders, via
scholarship support and national/global programs like Farabi and Erasmus
exchange programs and visiting scholar initiatives. In particular, this has been
a priority area of focus in latest years and we are sharpening our strategy to
maximize MCBU FEAS’s national and global footprint.
Better support and leverage our alumni. Producing
outstanding alumni who are leaders in the world of business and policy is the
prominent goal of the faculty. The school must take full advantage of its alumni.
We are implementing several measures to enhance the school’s engagement with
alumni and external constituencies.
Going forward, this will provide the framework by which we
can assess and track the school’s progress.
