To make a long story short, I’ll just mention some milestones: When I returned to my MBA sponsor, the Turkish Treasury, in 1996, I was transferred from the research department to the debt office as a specialist, and I did not initially realize that this was a major turning point in my career. I would see how my MBA education and thesis topic, risk management, would impact my professional career in the next few years
