At BCG, Challengers go against expected thinking and inspire their teams to be truly innovative. Yusuf is unafraid to try new things.
When you work at BCG, you are never the same person as the day before. Whenever you take one step back and reflect, you realize how much you have developed in a short amount of time—and this is fascinating.
I have always been very curious about understanding the social and business dynamics around me. Based on that interest, I earned an industrial-engineering degree.
Being a consultant is the most effective way to see the big global picture, how everything around us works and how to make things better. I definitely think that working at BCG is the best environment to get the required skill set/tools and meet the right people to make that happen while being a part of this amazing multicultural environment. I sincerely feel that I am a part of a big global family, where everybody is very open to share their experiences and help you develop.
So far, I have had the chance to experience many different industries through various topics, and this has definitely fulfilled my intellectual curiosity.
Yusuf holds a BSc in industrial engineering from Middle East Technical University.
Q: Why did you choose to work at BCG?
A: What mainly differentiates BCG from its competitors is the way we support clients to overcome their challenges. We are not there to solve their problems. Instead, we partner with them to add significant value to their businesses. I really like this client-centric approach and believe that this close partnership is one of the key drivers of BCG's success.
Q: What inspires you about BCG?
A: Being a part of a global network with very smart people from many different backgrounds is an amazing feeling. You are always sure that there is at least someone within the BCG family who is an expert in the topic you are working on or has done a very similar project somewhere in the world. This inspires you and makes you feel that there are no limits at BCG; everything is within your reach.
Q: What opportunities are you excited about at BCG?
A: BCG's global footprint and network are very exciting. I am very much looking forward to being able to work across the world. My goal is to have project experiences with BCG in five different continents before I am 30.
