Merve was born and raised in Turkey. She graduated from Koc University, Istanbul, with a double degree in business administration and economics. After graduation, Merve joined Garanti Bank, Turkey’s (BBVA) management trainee programme. Merve worked for almost six years with the bank’s project and acquisition finance department and ran the entire process of a deal including origination, structuring, documentation and execution. Her deal experience includes many of Turkey’s recent landmark acquisitions, infrastructure and real-estate transactions.
After a six-year career in the banking sector, Merve decided to take an MBA at London Business School (LBS) to sharpen her leadership style, enhance her career to the next level and become part of the LBS network. The fascinating cultural diversity was one of the main reasons she chose LBS, along with the School’s London location, which offers Merve the unique opportunity to access top global recruiters, especially in the finance sector.
