Youth Forum on MEF Epoka Representatives

The Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, Prof. Dr. Güngör Turan and the Head of the Banking and Finance Department Assist. Prof. Dr. Urmat Ryskulov participated at the “Youth Forum” on the “Sharing our Experience of Model of Economic Forum, Istanbul” organized by Entrepreneur Club , which was held on March 13, 2013, at Conference Hall with a wide participation from almost all Faculty staff and students.

The Youth Forum started with brief information on Model Economic Forum, continued with a fruitful exchange of each representative experience and opinions. Ms. Beka stated that “I can’t find the right words to describe this experience since it is something that you can only experience. For me this experience was unforgettable. I have never imagined hat only in one hour, not to mention that I was there for 3 days, I got to know many people from different cultures. There, we were speaking the same language which was not the English, but the kindness that all of them showed. As a student from economics I learned new things and made me understand better the field that I am studying. There were spoken also many words of wisdom as I can mention Mr.Livada who said “never take ‘no’ as an answer” and Mr. Walker courage us that everything that we learn should be challenged or Mr.Turhan who taught us to see the world from different perceptions. In the third day we had workshops where I chose the topic: “Social Innonivation; why it matters and how to accelerate it?” There, I was again, in a group with people from different countries.  The conclusion of this topic was that social innonivation was important since it affected our lives and people to develop it needed to pass through some stages such as awareness or learn it through our education. Also to develop our innovative ideas we needed funds from government and expected from him to approve some legislations to make them acceptable from the others. So in the end I can say that this kind of forums is very important for us since we learn new things and are valuable for our future.”

The Rector of Epoka University, Prof. Dr. Remzi Altın, delivered a presentation focusing on importance of these international activities.” Epoka University is one of the best universities in Albania and well-known University in Turkey and we are proud to work with the best students of each field of our academic programs. It was a contest and we are going to award you with some prices, but I think that these prices are not so important for your future. The most important thing for you is to be successful in your life. I believe that you are going to be successful in your future and we will encourage and support our students to participate in such international activities as Epoka representatives”, Prof. Dr. Altın said.
