Our only resource to generate this competition is our human resources,” said Mr. Atalay.

Within the scope of the program, the employees of the company have the opportunity to receive training from the leading academicians of Turkey after office hours at company headquarters. The employees attending MBA courses, without having to leave company premises, successfully completed their post-graduate degrees without disrupting their work.

Mr. Çağrı Bozbey, Havelsan Project Manager who graduated with honor said, “As an engineer, the MBA Program that I completed is not just a title on my CV, but an opportunity to better understand the environment and the world. I would like to thank Havelsan and Bahçeşehir University for this golden opportunity.”

It is expected that the cooperation between the two institutions will continue in the forthcoming years with an increase in the number of participants. Havelsan provides its employees with the opportunity to receive postgraduate education at company headquarters shows its assertiveness to invest not only to technology but also in human resources.
