Since 2006, the Bilkent University Operational Research Club has been organizing the Youth Academy, a national symposium that gives university students the opportunity to encounter leading figures from politics, business and the media. This year’s academy, the 15th to be held, took place on December 21–22 at the Nazım Hikmet Congress and Art Center in Ankara.
The event attracted students from over 60 cities. Among the speakers for the symposium were Selda Seçkinler (chief human resources officer, the Kale Group), Rauf Gürbüz (general manager,
Colgate), Cenk Akıncılar (assistant general manager of human resources, QNB Finansbank) and Çağla Yalçın (national retail manager, L’Oreal).
