General Description ^
History
The first attempt for the foundation of our department was made by Suphi Paşa, Minister of Commerce, to relieve trade from dominance of foreigners, to provide necessary trade knowledge for local traders and to train experts and on 16 January 1883 the department was established with the name of “Hamidiye Ticaret Mekteb-i Alisi” by Tahir Paşa, Minister of Education. The department, which was abolished in 1893 on unknown grounds, was re-established in 1894 in Beyazit. Both theoretical and practical knowledge was being provided which at those times enhanced the value of our department and in 1915 specialization majors were established for the first time. In 1923-1924 academic year it continued to educate under Ministry of Economy and henceforth it became the first institution where female and male students are educated together in Turkey. In 1924 it was renamed as “Yüksek İktisat ve Ticaret Mektebi” under Ministry of Education. Although it was a vocational school, where only graduates of Commercial High Schools could attend, high school graduates were started to be accepted after 1927. In 1959 it took the name of “İktisadi ve Ticari İlimler Akademisi” with the enforcement of Academy Law and specialization majors are transformed to Finance-Accounting, Economic Business Administration, International Trade and Tourism and length of education was prolonged to four years from three years. Evening courses are opened and some changes were made on curriculum with the decision of Inter-Academic Board in 1967. Then majors are separated as Economics-Finance and Business Administration-Accounting. “İstanbul İktisadi ve Ticari İlimler Akademisi”, which became an incorporated annexed budget institutions in 1969, was supplemented with three institutions that are namely Accounting Institute, Business Sciences Institute and Turkish Economics Institute in 1972-1974 academic years. All of the faculties that were established with the transformation of Galatasaray Business Vocational School to Business Administration Faculty and Aksaray Vocational Commerce High School and Beyazit Finance-Accounting Vocational High School to Commercial Sciences Faculty which were within the structure of Academy that opened Economic, Business Administration and Political Sciences in 1977-1978 academic year were merged to Marmara University Economics and Administrative Sciences Faculty depending on Law no.41 that came into force in July 1982.
