My goal, upon finishing my graduate studies, was to obtain a position in a large
corporation. I received and accepted an offer from Koc Holding, a diversified

Germany, and the United States -- a range of experiences rather unusual for someone in his
first years at a Turkish company.

The Case Study method used at XXX School may pose new challenges for some candidates; I,
