Ever since I was a child I have been self- reliant and this has led me to seek new experiences and pursue my dreams. However, I have now realized that, given the intensely competitive nature of the workforce at present, an undergraduate degree alone is insufficient for meeting my goals and career objectives. I believe that a global exposure will widen the way I think and it will help me in meeting new people, discovering new techniques and learning a new culture and I have thus decided to pursue my master’s degree in Australia in order to enrich myself with professional expertise in a multicultural environment.
After completing my schooling, Business Administration (BBA) was always the first path that I wanted to choose as my career option. I completed my bachelor’s degree from the University of Lucknow, India. This curriculum gave me a thorough knowledge of both managerial and administrative levels. My coursework helped me in channelizing my education and helped me towards the fondness of the subject. My fondness is quite evident through my work experience all throughout the last two and a half years where I helped a lot in my family business. My family runs a small business, which was their dream project. What began as a small School, massively turned out into a great institution? After gaining my bachelor’s degree my family wanted me to support them in the business, as I am the only son in the family I had no option to decline the offer. My sisters are too young to get into the business, so all the hopes were bestowed upon me.
I had a wonderful experience working for my business. I learned how my coursework from the university helped me in gaining a practical approach to my venture. I had to face new challenges almost every day. I learned new techniques about how to tackle problems and find suitable solutions for them. My uncle, who is a veteran in this field also helped me in learning new techniques, which one can never learn in the classroom. Under his guidance, I feel blessed and enlightened, and now I have a firm belief that how practical knowledge can very much be different from a theoretical one. I managed the school, I used to check the accounts almost every day, I was the one responsible for advertising, I also had full details of the logistics department as well, I used to go through the resumes of the teachers who used to apply at our institution, from this I had the privilege to learn about Human Resource as well. As my bachelor’s degree was a simple one i.e. with no specialization so we used to study every aspect of Business Administration, and I believe that being a jack of all trades and master of none gave me an edge, and it immensely helped me in prospering my venture.
Now that I have a thorough understanding of theoretical as well as hands-on experience of practical aspects of Business Administration I feel that I am prepared to begin the next step of my professional development, which is the pursuit of a master’s degree in the same discipline. I feel that it is important to build upon my previous training, hard work and education in a stimulating and invigorating atmosphere full of manifold viewpoints and diverse ideas. Gaining a master’s qualification in the same discipline would be ideal for meeting my educational goals.
Just to add a few quick points, as it was my own venture I had the privilege to appear for a few competitive/government exams as well. While preparing for these exams I had an opportunity to study a whole new curriculum which was unique and diverse in itself. I got the opportunity to study subjects related to humanities, general sciences etc. This gave me tremendous knowledge of other subjects as well apart from business administration. I personally believe that knowledge is something that can be acquired by anyone from anywhere, and by appearing for these exams I believe that it has only added another feather to my cap.
Your school’s master’s program in marketing is ideal for what I wish to pursue. And I seek to take up this specialization and learn more about it through the in-depth research which is part of the course. The marketing program offered by the world’s most renowned business school is definitely what I look to be a part of and like many students around the world, being part of this historic school would be a dream come true for me.
To conclude, I find that you’re deemed University offers the prerequisites needed to achieve my goals in life. The experience, research or training that I will acquire during the course of this program will help me to get a head start in my career and it is this magnetism that has attracted me to this prestigious institute. I feel confident that my background would help me make the most of your program and unleash my true potential. I look forward to being a strong addition to your department. I hope that this brief statement has given you a better idea of my abilities, experience, and interests. I am confident that if I get an opportunity to be a part of the intellectually stimulating environment I’ve always yearned for, my talents will be put to an optimal use. Coupled with the education and the exposure, I will be able to play a bigger part in giving back to society. I look forward to an affirmative reply to my application and being a part of the elite student body next fall.
