Soon after the open Department of Business Economics in the Faculty of Economics at Istanbul
University, in 1937, studies on the main topics of private and public enterprises within the field
of economics were started. From that time to 1954, the finance, accounting, and administration
lectures were given to executives there. However, with the aim of "...to train managers in private
and public enterprise" the Business Economics Institute established in 1954, and the addition
to above-emphasized lectures, the management lectures were started to be given. Considering

Business Economics, had been influenced by the founder professors Alfred Isaac, Ali Özeken,
Muhlis Ete's Management books (Sevk-u Idare). In time, business management transformed
from being one of the fields of economics into a discipline which is consist of own aspects,

Kemal Tosun, Erol Eren published business management books there. The professors continued
to write and publish management books, at the Faculty of Business Administration, one

the field of Business Management has become a tradition between Istanbul University
professors. The books came this tradition influenced by developments in the political,
economic, social, and technological fields in Turkey. In this circumstance, it can be said that
