MEF University was started by the İbrahim Arıkan Education and Scientific Research Foundation with the goal to carry on educational success at a higher level. We admitted our first students in the academic year of 2014-2015. Despite being a beginner in the industry, we strive to become a university with creativity, innovative thinking, and entrepreneurship in the foreground. We also aim to established local and global value-added educational model.
MEF University has 5 faculties, 15 departments, a vocational school, and a school of foreign languages with English Preparatory class. We also have an International Office that supports engagement with students and institutions from other countries. Our campus is in Maslak, the commercial and financial hub of Istanbul. It is located conveniently near the ITU Maslak Metro Station, making it easy for students to go places. Since the district is found in the city’s European side, students get the chance to experience quality life and multicultural diversity.
