MBA, Masters, Indian, Mumbai

January 2, 2013

As a child growing up in Mumbai, India, I was literally immersed in an atmosphere of multinational business.  Mumbai itself is the financial capital of India, and home to many multinational companies.  Growing up in this metropolitan environment has given me a vision of the world and its possibilities. 

Sadly, Mumbai has its share of poverty as well, and I cannot go forward without being forever changed by what I have seen.  However, my determination is my strength and I am determined to gain more knowledge and make an impact on people lives.  I know that I cannot change the entire world but I hope to change enough people who can change the world.  As an undergraduate, I volunteered, aiding in rebuilding homes in socio-economically challenged areas.  No experience ever has impressed upon me more effectively the need for significant change to come to humankind.  By developing myself further, I will be better equipped to be an agent for change.

 At my current educational level, I feel I would quickly exhaust every avenue of opportunity, and need to increase my depth of understanding by participating in XXXX’s graduate Business Administration program, focusing my work on the area of Human Resources, a logical and natural continuation of my undergraduate education.  What is more, I bring with me not only a passion for the world of business, but two years of practical experience, having already started my own computer repair business, a Tantalus for what is truly required to be successful, and what could be accomplished with higher education.

 To work in a management or leadership position, one needs to be able to interact well with people of differing backgrounds, beliefs and languages.  Throughout my career, I have interacted effectively with many fellow team members, yet, I feel due to my background, I have been all the more successful because of my heritage.  I come from India, have traveled to two continents, and speak five languages competently.  While many speak of the need to be culturally competent, I have a worldview that is well rounded.  I feel that I am more sympathetic to the immigrant experience, and especially those that yearn to advance themselves to the highest levels.  This is what I will bring to the workplace as well as the classroom, as a student and future professional Human Resources work.  In the most practical terms, my ability to communicate effectively with people of differing cultures was put to excellent use in my professional work as I corresponded with sister branches worldwide.

 Additionally, I bring with me to the student body three years of practical experiences in the field.  Working for XXXX Shipping in Mumbai, I have earned many company accolades while building my business vocabulary, experiences and multidisciplinary team skills.  On a personal level, I have found that one of my greatest strengths is being able to recognize my weaknesses, working on them until they become my strength.

 In order to obtain the finest education possible, I need to pursue my degree with a university with a national reputation for success.  Anyone can attend school, and walk away with an MBA, but the quality of degree depends upon the technical skills learned, practiced and polished.  I need a program that will aid students in developing their leadership skills, decision-making ability, effective communication skills and a passion for teamwork. 

 I would like to take this opportunity to express that my GMAT results do not reflect the seriousness with which I take my academics, or the mature student I truly am with three years of practical experience.  In India, I had always maintained a near-perfect GPA.  My passion for business has always superseded any other discipline, which is illustrated by my academic successes.

 XXXX is my sole choice for further education.  Indeed, my husband is completing his Ph.D. with WMU and has had only the highest praise for the breadth, relevance and autonomy of the curriculum.  Additionally, he has remarked on the amazing faculty, and the school’s access to resources. 

 I am particularly intrigued and excited by the opportunity to taken advantage of the XXXX immersion education, bringing practical experiences to the framework of classroom theory.  Moreover, this chance to learn from people in the workplace only adds to the relevance of XXXX’s MBA program, one more reason I am intent upon this specific curriculum.  I believe that XXXX’s program and outstanding faculty can equip me with all that I need and so much more.

 I look forward to the opportunity to develop myself as a creative leader for Human Resources.  Your time and consideration is greatly appreciated.
