Rector of KAEU Prof. Dr. Vatan Karakaya, who made a statement after the trademark registration of Ahi Evran University Integrated Quality Management System, said: "Quality is the main policy of our university, we regard the quality policy as a thought revolution in the academy. With the trademark registration, the revolution will be more widespread and different perspectives will be in higher education. We believe that we have developed a system based on Ahi-order value because there is human, self-criticism, and constant renewal according to feedback at the heart of this system. That adds dynamism to the Ahi Evran University Integrated Quality Management System, and gives an assurance to the workflow data, just as insurance. We consider IQMS is not established on the philosophy of auditing but the philosophy of management and as a model that always goes forward with continuous improvements. We are proud of creating such a model that points to continuity by embodying the past, the present, and the future in its essence and we are proud of the approval of its trademark registration. May this pride bring blessings to our university, city, and country. I want to thank all my teammates for their hard work.”
