The biggest goal of IUE graduates, who work in Istanbul and Izmir offices of companies called 'EY', 'PwC', 'KPMG' and 'Deloitte', which are known as the 'Big Four' in the international arena, is to carry their success abroad.
Veysel Yeğin (33), a graduate of IUE Department of Business Administration, works as an audit manager in the Istanbul office of the Netherlands-based KPMG company. Yeğin, who has been selected among hundreds of people in his field and reached the top level, continues his duty as a manager successfully. Merve Bora (32), a graduate of IUE Department of Business Administration, is a senior audit manager at Deloitte, based in the United States (USA).

Burak Tarakçı (25), who graduated from the same department, continues his career as an audit specialist in the Istanbul office of the London-based company PwC. Stating that they are at the point they aim at, Gül and Tarakçı aim to continue their success in the international arena by going global.
MESSAGES FROM IUE GRADUATES
I REACHED MY GOAL
KPMG audit Manager Veysel Yeğin: “It is an honor to be a manager in one of the 4 largest companies in the world in the field of financial auditing. We audit many domestic or foreign companies/holdings in the production and service sector. After graduation, I am at a point that I aimed for and wanted. The advanced foreign language education at the University I received and my going to Denmark with the Erasmus program contributed significantly to me.”
GIVES ME STRENGTH
Deloitte Senior Audit Manager Merve Bora: “I work at our company's headquarters in Izmir. However, we are working on many companies not only in Izmir but also in Turkey. Working in an area that I have been trained in and mastered gives me even more strength. The educational opportunities provided by our university and the close relations it has established with the sector show its positive impact on business life.”
STAY ON TARGET, AIM FOR MORE
PwC Audit Specialist Burak Tarakçı: “I have been working at PwC for three years. I chose to go to Istanbul after graduating from university. PwC was a company I always wanted to work for. I can say that I am doing a job that I love. It's very important to have confidence in yourself and go after your goal no matter what. When you know what you want and focus on it, it is possible to achieve success no matter what business it is. Of course, I still have a long way to go. I aim to develop myself further and go global.”
I WAS EMPLOYED BEFORE I GRADUATED
EY Audit Assistant Hazal Gül: “I graduated from university this year. But my employment goes back a long time. I started working at EY before I got my diploma in order to get to know the sector with the guidance of my professors. I stayed here after graduation. As an audit assistant, I take part in the audit team of companies in different industries. It is a great advantage to enter the business life without waiting. I want to keep going up at EY.”
WE PROVED OURSELVES
Prof. Dr. Burcu Güneri Çangarlı, Dean of IUE Faculty of Business: “We are one of the most preferred faculties in our country. We are constantly renewing our faculty and focusing on providing the best opportunities to our students in order not to let them down. Our students and graduates take advantage of the fact that we choose our academic staff from people who have experience in the sector and abroad. We have many other graduates working in the so-called 'Big Four' companies in the financial audit field. The success of young people who graduated from the Department of Business Administration and Accounting and Auditing clearly shows the difference of our faculty.”
