“Firstly, the culture at Koch is truly unique. The Principle Based Management™ approach is at the core of the company's culture and it greatly influenced the way I made decisions and interacted with my colleagues. The eight foundational values of the company culture resonated with me and I found myself reflecting on what they meant to me personally. I also appreciated the resources available to better understand Koch culture, such as the PBM SharePoint site and the MBM Go! course. In terms of projects, I had the opportunity to work on some exciting AI initiatives. Although the specifics of these projects are confidential, I can share that they involved innovative applications of AI technology and required a deep understanding of data analysis and machine learning. These projects were challenging but also incredibly rewarding, and I learned a lot from them. One of the highlights of my internship was participating in the Innovation Challenge. This was a competition where teams of interns were tasked with coming up with innovative solutions to business problems. My team and I worked hard on our project, applying the DMF and other PBM concepts throughout our journey. The experience of presenting our idea at the Final Presentation Expo was unforgettable. Overall, my internship at Koch was a great learning experience. I enjoyed the culture, the projects I worked on, and the people I worked with. I'm grateful for the opportunity and look forward to applying what I've learned in my future career.”
