MicroMaster Studies

Micromasters are a virtual campus that offers six-month specialized programs in two areas: (1) a forward-looking ecosystem and innovation strategies; and (2) digital communications and marketing. The programs are available for online learning to interested students, made possible by the cooperation between four higher education institutions: Istanbul University, Turkey, Institute of Communication Studies in Macedonia, DOBA Faculty of Applied Business and Social Studies from Slovenia and Vitaytas Magnus University of Lithuania. This collaboration allows students access to professors with extensive international experience in the areas they will study.

The programs are ideal for beginners in entrepreneurship, management and marketing. They are tailored to candidates who are currently students, but also to employers, entrepreneurs, managers, consultants and anyone else interested in improving their business, leadership and communications skills.

The activities are made possible by the project “Internationalization at Home through Online Micro Masters and Virtual Mobility – Turkey, Macedonia, Slovenia and Lithuania (Master @ Home)”, supported by the Erasmus + program and the Turkish National Agency.
