Prof. Dr. Deniz Ülke Arıbogan: "The world of the future is very clear"
Prof. Dr. Deniz Ülke Arıboğan stating, that since the begin of the pandemic crisis, as a university a very good intervention has been made at the Uskudar University: "We did what other universities couldn't do. What we're doing is actually giving a very good reaction to the crisis. There is no such a thing, as we have come to the ninth heaven in online education. Because online education is a huge transaction, with a very large budget, sold for a very long time, marketed at a huge cost worldwide. And now, major universities and big technology companies in the world, have quickly cooperated after the pandemic.
There are joint university technology platforms establishing. Because the world of the future is very clear. Digitalization will surely be anywhere in this business. But we have to decide: “We need to have short, medium and long term plans. Here is how we will use first hand digitalization in the call of the meeting we will hold today.”
Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan: “It is necessary to determine the importance, priority and target”
Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan stated, that digital transformation is very important. Tarhan said; “There is a rapid change in the world. If we take the correct position for this change, it will advance us. If we take the wrong position, we will be interrupted. Here we need to have a serious competitive advantage. For this, we need to form a center team. It makes no sense to talk about whether digital transformation is necessary or not right now. Right now it's pointless to talk about whether digital conversion is necessary or not. Because digital transformation is inevitable right now. Then we'll talk about how we can make it fit for us. In the meantime, what I care about is, we need to build our own two internal models. What suits us best in doing so, how can we connect? The second, we need to build our strategy. We need to determine importance, priority and target. For these, we need to make evaluations of everyone here in various angles and draw the road map accordingly.”
