Akademi Yıldız
The idea of establishing an academy to promote the strategic goals and values of Yıldızlar Yatırım Holding was born from the vision of enabling
all employees to develop and prepare for the future, and becoming a learning organization. The first seeds of this idea were sown in September 2017. On this journey, which we embarked on with the belief that corporate development
cannot be possible without investing in human resource, the establishment process of Akademi Yıldız began with the participation of several managers under the leadership of Hakkı Yıldız, Board Member at Yıldızlar Yatırım Holding. Following a collaboration with the Executive Development Department of Sabancı University, the process gained momentum. In April 2018, with the onboarding of team members, Akademi Yıldız Training and Development Department was formed. The team set out to complete all the processes related to designing the training programs and other infrastructure activities.
Before the training programs were launched and during the development process, teasers about Akademi Yıldız began circulating within the company, sparking curiosity with activities such as Star Quote of the Week and Star Book of the Month. After all the preparations, Akademi Yıldız Development Summit & Launch event took place on April 13 with the participation of prominent speakers, all experts in their

Akademi Yıldız acts with the vision of being a lifelong development-focused academy that provides an innovative, sustainable learning environment and supports the company toward becoming a strong employer brand in all fields where Yıldızlar Yatırım Holding operates. The four schools – Leadership School, Sales and Marketing School, Basic Development School, Vocational and Technical Development School – launched for this purpose and built on the company’s principles of quality and trust, will help train qualified human resource that the organization needs by offering learning and development opportunities for each employee.
In the upcoming period, Akademi Yıldız will continue to implement a number of new activities as part of a specific plan. Some other planned activities include: digital and mobile learning media, foreign language programs, short seminars by speakers with expertise or experience in various fields, In-house Trainer Training Program, development events, periodicals and university collaborations.
