Asst. Prof. Dr. Kaya attracted attention to entrepreneurship culture

Asst. Prof. Dr. Kaya, a Lecturer in the Department of Management Information Systems, and Dr. Burak Erkut and Nadine Thierbach, who carries out their work abroad in cooperation with Asst. Prof. Dr. Tuğberk Kaya explored “Student Trends in Entrepreneurship”, which included Turkish and foreign students in Northern Cyprus and Germany.

Asst. Prof. Dr. Kaya stated that entrepreneurship is more common in developing areas. Students who participated in their research showed the same level of awareness in the implementation of entrepreneurship despite their cultural differences.

Kaya mentioned that efficient use of cosmopolitan structure from different cultures will bring different points of view and creative ideas. Additionally, using technology in the digitalizing era can provide new initiatives. Gender and activities within a family, such as the existence of entrepreneurial individuals and the past experience of entrepreneurship effected activities. In addition, universities have great importance in the dissemination of entrepreneurship culture. Universities have a significant role in developing entrepreneurship.

Kaya states that, “Developmental centers should be established in order to create new projects. Furthermore cooperation among government, the private sector and universities will increase the number of young entrepreneurs. Opening of entrepreneurship centers in educational institutions, increasing incentives and support from the state regarding entrepreneurship and establishing tech parks within universities will be effective.”

Kaya ends saying, “Unemployment among women and young people is a major problem not only in the TRNC but also around the world. Launching new initiatives using information technology would help reduce the unemployment rate.”
