Student Talent Development Program (OYP) : “Everybody is a genius...” Albert Einstein said: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” The Student Talent Development Program (OYP)” applied at MBA Schools discovers the talents of the students and enables them to develop in these areas at their own pace and personal characteristics. I n addition to being the place where the students will discover their potential, the schools are the place to develop the students in new fields and to prepare them for life. While most of the schools set an average level for its students, what is required from the education is that it should identify the needs and talents of the students and plan such education for each student. This is how each student can reach a level where they will be able to do useful things for the society and the world. The students who are one step ahead of their classmates at math will have the chance to improve their talent instead of waiting for their friends, and a student who is quicker at learning in social fields will have the chance to write different projects, and any student who is one step behind will have the opportunity to prove himself in different areas and will work freely in the fields where they are behind. The Albert Einstein’s quote of “If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” reminds us of how sensitive the education is. Lifelong success Acorrect education increases the perspective of how the students view the subject and their success level significantly. When the students are provided the education they need, they will continue to improve their talents throughout their life. New talents will allow them to unearth such areas of talent. MBA Schools Student Talent Development Program (OYP) provides new opportunities to discover the talents of the students. Every child is special in this program. OYP ensures that the students discover their talents and improve themselves in such areas at their own pace and based on their own personal characteristics with the comprehensive educational programs that will allow them to use their potential to the fullest. The program closely monitors the development of the stu- dents, and the interdisciplinary programs are constantly enriched and updated. Knowing oneself... Another important aspect of discovery and development of the talents is that it allows the students to know themselves. Studies using metacognitive thinking processes and self-evaluation forms are used in this purpose to allow the students to know themselves. The students are en- couraged to use their products and projects in daily life and social services. The students are en- couraged to share their project with national and international institutions, TUBITAK in particular. In addition to the activities with the students, OYP updates the knowl- edge of the instructors on special talents based on global approaches with the Teacher Academies. No talent is left undiscovered through education- al models and trainings on material development and education based on different characteristics of the students.
