Our first paragraph should be about where we are now and what we want to do.
In our first paragraph we should include some background information on where we are right now and what we would like to achieve with the MBA study. As an example, you could write something like:
I am a + years old male/female from X country. I have worked as a Y for Z years. My academic background is in A, and I have always found it important to have a clear focus on B. Over my career, I have developed strong competences in C, D and E through my experiences at different companies.
At this point in my life I want to take on new challenges and obtain a Master of Business Administration degree from XYZ University with your help. The opportunity to pursue a Master’s degree abroad is appealing to me because it will allow me to learn more about business practices from various cultures, as well as gain exposure in an international environment that will be beneficial for my future career path.
The second paragraph tells them how this fits into your longer term plans, and also tells them a bit about you as a person.
The second paragraph tells them how this fits into your longer term plans, and also tells them a bit about you as a person. It is important to include the following:
- how the program fits into your longer term career plans
- how the program fits into your personal and professional goals
- why you are interested in the program at that particular school
- what you can bring to the program
- what experiences you have had that make you a strong candidate
The third paragraph is the clincher.
The third paragraph is the clincher. The purpose of this section is to convince the reader that you are suited for the course and that you will succeed in it. It should be specific, and provide a clear reason why you want to study at the university in question.
In this paragraph reiterate why the university or college is right for you, how their particular program fits with your interests and ambitions, and how your past experiences make you a good fit for their program.
The final paragraph should directly connect these two aspects of your experience – courses taken at UK university (or work or research experience) and courses desired in an MBA program – perhaps by noting a particular professor you’re excited to have as an advisor, or by mentioning a certain principle of business management which was interesting to explore during your time abroad.
Make sure that you are convincing and positive, that you clearly state what your goals are, and what your ideal career path is.
As far as it is possible, try to focus on the future and not the past. If you have had a few years to work since you graduated, then of course your education will take a back seat to this when discussing your career. However, you should still spend less time talking about what you have done in the past. As with your personal statement, make sure that you are convincing and positive, that you clearly state what your goals are, and what your ideal career path is.
This paragraph should be entirely about you and what you want to do.
