“Industry policies” have been successfully implemented especially in East Asia, enabling the countries in this region to rapidly increase their welfare and competitiveness. By means of their industrial policies, these countries have shown the fastest growth rates and development performance in world history.
Industrial policies have manifested in the form of public policies that enable “selected” industrial branches to be supported by various tools in the countries where they are implemented. In line with the public policy at the corporate level, selected industry/technology areas have been analyzed and directed towards these areas. Hence, Technology Management is becoming more important than ever before.
For this reason, Istanbul Commerce University has established the department of Industrial Policies and Technology Management and launched the master’s programs. It provides options with thesis, non-thesis and online-distance programs.
Industrial Policies and Technology Management, which includes a curriculum in the field of industry and suitable for technological and digital transformation delivers courses on topics such as Big Data, Futuristic Approaches, Innovation Management, New-Marketing Management and Financial Literacy.
While the students who participate in the trainings with their “field experience” establish an important network among themselves, our field experience higher education staff create an important value by sharing both academic and field experiences. In our program, our students and lecturers work together as a team on EU and other national/internationally supported project studies beyond academic publication. Such a partition that contains multiple disciplines is unique in Turkey.
