Global Partnerships

At İTÜ GLOBAL, we aim to stimulate a global approach, steering for a global mindset.  Under the auspices of our Rectorate, İTÜ GLOBAL has been set up to contribute to the existing international framework, adding a different touch to globalization in higher education. To maintain this goal, as İTÜ GLOBAL, we are involved in the management of İTÜ's internationalization processes and support university-wide policies to develop research and teaching collaborations throughout the world. Additionally, for a sustainable and coherent international flow of information and knowledge, we conduct the coordination and communication with our partners and international networks. Last but not least, an important role of our office is to help students and scholars to realize their pursuits via mobility opportunities we offer in collaboration with approximately 140 partner institutions. With this in mind, İTÜ GLOBAL upholds a strong commitment to take the scientific and technological advancement to further levels with peer institutions at the global scale. İTÜ provides its staff, students and partners with internationally recognized accredited courses. İTÜ GLOBAL seeks a rich variety of collaborative opportunities, which all of our staff and students can benefit. Each of our select partners enrich our international outlook in terms of research and exchange. İTÜ GLOBAL’s role is to enhance existing partnerships and form connections with broader opportunities, which, in return, generate success.

İTÜ Global will put its parternship performance indicators into action at the end of each academic year in order to ensure maximum quality of each protocol. When necessary, the office will seek new partnerships with peer international institutions for a deeper impact in research, teaching and public service, which may also result in global development.
