Board of Trustees Approves a New Masters Program in Law and Economics, Also Sets Tuition Fees for 2008

The Bilkent University Board of Trustees met on December 17 at which they approved the proposal for the new Master of Arts Program in Law and Economics in the Faculty of Law. The program is primarily structured for business professionals and offers a unique set of courses with respect to the combination of two disciplines, namely law and economics.

The interaction between law and economics has gained significant importance.
A need has emerged for well-equipped lawyers in the field of market economy, who have sufficient knowledge regarding the economic impact of legal rules and the economic features of different legal systems. In order to meet this demand, it is crucial that lawyers are trained both in law and in economics.

Thus, the Bilkent University Faculty of Law is planning to offer a postgraduate program in "Economic Law" to enhance lawyers' awareness and knowledge of Competition and Economic Regulation Law.

The Board also reviewed the income and expenditures for the 2007 fiscal year and concluded that they were in line with the budget approved at the previous board meeting.

The Board of Trustees also took this opportunity to consider and agree upon the budget for 2008. As part of the approved budget for 2008, the board has decided to keep the tuition fees denominated in YTL unchanged, with US$ denominated fees going up by 5%.

Accordingly, tuition fees for the upcoming academic year will be as follows:
Students to be admitted in 2008: 15,400 YTL (8% VAT included)
International Students to be admitted in 2008: $13,000 (%8 VAT is included)
Students admitted in 2005, 2006 and 2007: 15,400 YTL (8%VAT included)
Students admitted in 2004: $9,690 (8%VAT included)
Students admitted in 2001, 2002 and 2003: $8,270 (8%VAT included)
International Students admitted in 2005, 2006 and 2007: $12,680
International Students admitted in 2002, 2003 and 2004: $10,235
