2.1.7 Corporate Profile http: //www. bankasya. com. tr/_pdf/faaliyet_raporlari/interaktif/en/m-1−2. html
Having commenced activities in 1996 as «Asya Finans», Turkey’s sixth private finance house, Bank Asya has since then achieved a strong and respected position as the banking industry’s fastest-growing actor even though it is the sector’s newest participation bank entry. In 2009 Bank Asya’s «AsyaCard DIT» product received both the «Best Cash Displacement Initiative» award in the «Visa Europe Best Card & Payment Sector Awards» and the Cards & Payments Organization’s «Best New Credit Card Product Launch» award. Bank Asya is firmly committed to a strategy of sound and sustainable growth, which it has made an integral part of its corporate structure. As the first participation bank in Turkey to go public in order to establish a solid and broad capital base, Bank Asya launched a 23% initial public offering in 2006. As of end-2009, 50. 9% of the bank’s capital was publicly held. Supported by a multi-shareholder, domestically-financed capital structure, Bank Asya increased its paid-in capital to TRY 900 million in 2008. Bank Asya continuously develops its product and service lineup in order to meet the changing needs and expectations of its customers with a proactive approach in the retail banking, commercial banking, corporate banking, and enterprise banking business lines. As the first participation bank in Turkey to be awarded ISO 9001: 2000 Quality Management System certification, Bank Asya seeks to reinforce its market share by making an ever greater effort to:
Develop interest-free banking products and come up with new derivative products in this field. Adapt widely used banking products into the interest-free banking system. In keeping with its principle of investing in the future, Bank Asya invests both in people and in technology. It deploys advanced technology in order to continuously strengthen the momentum of its own growth by supporting youthful, dynamic, and development-focused human resources who identify with its corporate values. Having expanded the scope of its delivery network through investments in technological infrastructure and alternative distribution channels in addition to its 158 branches, Bank Asya has been particularly successful in gaining increasingly more frequent recognition in recent years for the innovative payment system products that it has introduced. AsyaCard DIT (Europe's most advanced contactless credit card) and DIT Pratik (Turkey's first prepaid contactless bank card), both of which have been made available for the use of the bank’s customers, are but two examples of how Bank Asya continues to distinguish itself in the market. Bank Asya regards social involvement as an aspect of being a productive and profitable bank whose importance goes beyond the purely economic and financial dimensions. For this reason, it defines its strategic goals out of its awareness that its own sustainability can only be achieved by creating more value for all of its stakeholders.
2.1.8 SWOT Analysis
Strength ratings despite of last years crises.
Small number of competitors in Islamic Banking Sector
Their leading position in the industry, with respect to their market shares of assets, loans and deposits.
Its branches located in every big and small cities of Turkey.
Enough customer base because 96,8% of population of Turkey is Muslims
Strong competitor: Turkey Finance Participation Bank.
Low amount of foreign customers due to acknowledgement and distrust to Islamic Banking.
The availability of modern telecommunication systems and technology will facilitate the improvement and strengthening of the Bank’s international business and ATM services, and the development of new services, such as telephone banking or on-line banking.
The increased access to computers by customers will allow the bank to reach more target groups through electronic communication.
Due to recovering of whole economy from the last years crises there is a good chance to take a strong position in banking sector, because overall economic activity will probably increase in country.
The profit of the bank and its market position can be influenced due to increasing number of international banks.
Some customers prefer to do business with competitors because «Asya Bank» is Government owned and political interference or changes often affect their confidence.
Bank is unable to attract certain customers because it is Government owned and there is the perception that their account information could be opened to the Government and its agencies.

2.3 Organization Behavior http: //www. bankasya. com. tr/_pdf/faaliyet_raporlari/interaktif/en/m-1−3. html
Ethical Principles For BankAsya
Ethics' is a collection of measurements that inquire into the values, norms and rules that form the essentials of the individual and social relations established by people from the moral aspect of right-wrong or good-bad. While the professional ethics regulates the relations of the individuals that form a professional group among themselves and between them and the society, the organizational ethics defines the inner-organizational culture in the solution of problems originating from the inside and outside of the organization by means of certain rules. The fact that Banks that realize the functions of investments and savings by playing an integrative and intermediary role between the parties in society that supply funds and demand funds respectively also aim the principles of profitability and productivity stipulates the requirement that they have to work in accordance with the Ethical Principles in the professional and organizational fields.

The day started with introduction to banking system in Turkey and acquiring general information about Asya Bank. Also I had an interview with Emrah Guler, head of department. The Banking Cards and Payments Marketing System Department employees work with other branches and directly with customers. This department have a lot of types of Credit Cards DIT Cards, Business Cards, Nakit Cards etc and their cards have different features and advantages (Classic, Gold, Platinum). In those times when I was internship in this department Supervisor Tuba Kara briefly explained to me about main features of Bank Asya Credit cards.

They do not work with direct customer or branches. Their duties are to answer the request of Treatment Recourse Management Department and other sectors, download the data into a «DAS system». DAS- is a type of computer program, where all information about customers' documents such as copy of IDs are kept.
In last week I was in Accounting Department. In this department my supervisor Hakan Ozel shortly explained to me about their main jobs. These department deals with expenses of personals of Bank Asya. Personals send their checks to accounting department after that accounting officers make monitors. When they spend? Where they spent these money. If personals spend their money in order to go to the client and explain something about for example a new type of credit cards or use taxi all of these expenses pays accounting officers. And also accounting officers pays medical expenses of their employees in limited money.
3.1 My objectives and learnings
My summer practice was different from others', because I had a chance not only practice abroad and also in different enterprises. Before starting I was very excited and worried about lack of experience, my knowledge and skills.
But after 2 days in Bank Asya I understood that knowledge that I get in university during the clases such as «Marketing», «Fundamentals of Financial Management», etc. is enough to be the employee of BankAsya or any Banks branches. All topics that we passed during 3 week training program was very nice.
Summer practice passed in Asya Bank it gave me a good understanding of banking sector of Turkey. Banking system in the world is quite similar and they all use the world standards. It took several days to understand main principles of banking system. Asya Bank is a big bank with big ambitions. The bankexisting for 14 years and has an interesting history. They have many branches in all cities of country. They agree that banking sector of Turkey can be better. That is why they support research and development, technological innovation programs.
My summer internship showed me my strengths and weaknesses in knowledge. Using this knowledge properly is very important in our future career. My objective was to find ability of using my current knowledge efficiently. Although I was just an assistant, a good understating of all given tasks was a small surprise for my supervisors in bank. I have learned a lot of things about banking system, but the important one is experience.
My summer internship showed me what kind of knowledge I am lack off and what I am not. Using this knowledge properly is very important in our future career, and in the future of our country. My objective was to find ability of using my current knowledge efficiently. So, I hope that everything that I learned in my summer internship will be useful for my future.
