Buyurgan: It is very valuable for us to see our brands through the eyes of young people.

Stating that they have hosted thousands of students at bizz@kampüs to date, Ülker CEO Mete Buyurgan said, “The bizz@kampüs, which our young people show great interest in, has managed to become one of the leading organizations in the area of marketing in our country over the years. It is very valuable for us to see our brands through the eyes of young people in the competition we organized for the 11th time this year. We offer our young people an experience that will benefit them for a lifetime, regardless of whether they are ranked or not. Once again, we would like to thank all our young people who showed interest in bizz@kampüs for their friendship and contribution to us.”          

Buyurgan: It is very important to gain experience in university.

Saying that young people should make the most of their university years, Mete Buyurgan said, “I believe that the time spent at university is perhaps the most important and most valuable experience of their life journey. I think it is also important to gain experience by doing part-time work and internship in a way that will feed the theoretical knowledge gained at the university. For this reason, it is extremely important to be a member of qualified student clubs, to participate in internship and talent programs, and to participate in competitions such as bizz@kampus. Finally, I recommend that you do a job that you love, are interested in and that you believe will be happy in the future, and direct your education accordingly.”
