Instructor Information: Lale Yurtseven
My name is Lale Yurtseven. I am a part-time faculty member in the Business Division at De Anza College. I have taught several courses including Human Relations in Business, Introduction to Business, Customer Service and International Business Management.

A bit about my background: I am Turkish, I grew up in Germany and I came to the United States in 1986 as an exchange student. I returned to earn my Bachelor's Degree in International Relations at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California. I continued at the Fisher Graduate School of International Business to earn my M.B.A. in International Management. I have lived in San Jose since 1997.

Prior to my teaching career, I worked for different multi-national companies for several years, ranging from small companies to industry giants. I mostly worked in management and business development. In 2001, I co-founded a small technology business in the Bay Area where I am still involved as a manager.

I also work independently as a Workforce Training Professional. I offer training courses, seminars, and workshops for companies in Professional Selling, Customer Service, Management Training, Team Work Skills, Communication and Interpersonal Skills Training.

I am also a part-time teacher at West Valley College and Mission College in the Business/Marketing Departments.
