Pegasus Airlines Cargo is to hold an International Transport Logistics conference in conjunction with Bahcesehir University in Istanbul on 8 October.
The carrier will hold the event at the university’s Besiktas campus in partnership with Bahcesehir University’s faculty of economics, administrative and social Sciences.
The conference will bring together national and international students and will cover topics relevant to the logistics air, sea and road transportation sectors.
Pegasus says the conference will be of particular interest to students looking to make a career in these sectors, as it will combine both education and experience.
Pegasus Airlines vice president for cargo, Aydin Alpa, says: “At Pegasus Cargo we believe that hands-on education when learning a profession is vital. Students who attend this conference will be able to meet with and benefit from the experience of some of the international logistic sector’s most seasoned professionals.”
Dean of Bahcesehir University’s faculty of economics, Professor Necip Cakir, explains the importance of strong collaboration between universities and the world of business.
He says: “Universities are very important both from the point of view of the academic world and world of business. At Bahcesehir University we aim to be one of Turkey’s leading providers of a university level education.
“We want to give our students a complete education which ranges from A to Z and we are working on achieving this. When Bahcesehir University’s faculty of economics, administrative and social sciences was founded our aim was to expose our students to strong collaborations between higher education and the business world in the best ways available.
“Thus the international transport logistics conference that we are presenting with Pegasus Cargo is of great importance to us in securing these aims.”
