Goal:
      In order to be successful in their international activities, the enterprises of our country are demanding more and more demands from experts who are well-known in international trade and they are trying to strengthen their staff with these qualifications. Therefore, the main objective of Çağ University International Trade and Marketing Department is to train the human resources that our country and businesses need for international trade and marketing at the Master's level and to respond to such demands. It has been opened with the aim of developing management skills, gaining problem solving ability and decision making skills with entrepreneurial qualifications, and teaching modern management techniques to the university graduates who will be active in the field of business administration in the presence of domestic and foreign faculty members.
 
Objectives:
International trade is an economic activity that accelerates the economic development of countries. A country can produce more by exporting goods it produces cheaper and better than other countries, increasing employment and national income in the country; The country increases the welfare of people by importing the goods that it cannot produce under the same conditions. In the last 20-30 years, the rapidly developing communication and communication technologies have revealed the phenomenon of globalization. Countries have become more interdependent, and as a result world trade is rapidly increasing and increasing. International trade is more difficult and complex than national trade. Many countries have different legal regulations, languages ​​and currencies. Under the conditions of intense competition, economic and commercial activities of the enterprises are carried out under more difficult conditions under the conditions of globalization. Under these circumstances, companies that have an international vision and improve their export and import performances can become more successful through international partnerships and contracts. On the other hand, the success that businesses can exhibit in the international arena depends first of all on the human resources that are familiar with their international commercial and economic relations.
