In all countries of the World, universities are the organizations that will make a mark on 21st century. Therefore, if we try to understand 21th century with the notions of 20th century, we fall into a big mistake. While the 20th century is a century expressed by the concept of "change", the 21st century is a century that should be expressed with the concepts of "Development" and "Transformation". That’s why, our task is to prepare our universities for Development and Transformation. It is a necessity for our universities to adopt an appropriate management approach in order to reach this aim. It is important for our country not to be late.
In order to realize development and transformation, our universities need to be managed with the principle of 'Innovative, Creative and Competitive'. Whatever we will teach you and we will learn from you will form the most powerful side of the Istanbul Gelişim University family.
Istanbul Gelişim University has accepted the notion of "a man who doesn’t try to be better cannot stay good, as well" as a basic principle in order to fulfill this mission which is named by itself.
Our management philosophy is set as following:
• Success-oriented university,
• Human-oriented management,
• Science-oriented work environment.
In order to provide better servise for our valuable students, our aim is to make Istanbul Gelişim University a “Model University” in Turkey and one of the leading universities of the World. IGU has sufficient potential for this. We can build a future full of success together with all people who are open to progress.
Greeting with sincerly with love and understanding of “nobody can make a difference adopting the dominant view”.
