The existing literature of social sciences contains a nebula of arguments regarding professionals of global capitalism. These arguments underline the emergence of a new class by applying various concepts among which I prefer to use global professionals referring to this new structure. This thesis aims to ground this concept on a stronger basis by concentrating upon the interviews conducted with the professionals in Turkey who studied MBA in the United States of America. Based on these interviews, the study primarily focuses upon how global professionals experience and express their MBA education in particular and their whole career trajectories in general. In addition, this present study discusses how the informants present themselves as distinctive professionals and individuals by positioning the discussion within the framework of culture of global capitalism literature. In this sense, this research aims to contribute to the literature that tries to move away from a reductionist approach which sees the global professionals as a homogeneous entity.
