Sample Personal Statement for Admission to Business School
Being born and raised in the similarly fast moving (and yet, geographically distant from Lahore) city of Karachi, I had heard heaps about the might and the illustriousness that (mention your university name), as an institute, is embellished with for over a decade now. When I think of (mention your university name) , the supreme aspect of it that fuels my desire to immerse myself in this prestigious learning environment is the larger than life learning resources that (mention your university name) is equipped with. To be associated with (mention your university name) would not just be the ultimate realization of my most sought after desire but would also be the concrete, binding force which will align my competencies with those required by the professional career I intend to pursue. To address the most crucial question as to why do I prioritize (mention your university name) for an undergraduate degree over numerous other universities in Pakistan, the answer is fairly simple. As an institute, (mention your university name) doesn’t only cater to the theoretical aspects of a subject, but also enhances one’s critical thinking capabilities. It teaches you the intricate details of the science of analyzing, making rational judgements, and drafting reasonable conclusions. They say a smooth sea never makes a skilled sailor. As an individual, I yearn for challenges. I believe, (mention your university name) will provide me with a multi-dimensional educational environment which will set out challenges for me, enabling me to step out of my comfort zone, shun away my fears and frights, and to aim for zeniths I did not know existed. Why not go abroad? People often tend to undermine what the education system of our country is capable of. Yes, there are flaws but with institutes like (mention your university name) , I am sure there is not going to be a single prospect of my degree that (mention your university name) would not be able to cater to. (mention your university name) is, I believe, well equipped with all the human and nonhuman attributes that any foreign university can only aim for. Pakistan at the moment faces a dearth of expertise in a lot of fields and I believe that the only possible fix to it could be attained through education and for that we need to reinstate our trust in our institutes and in our system. The country would obviously not progress if we abandon the institutes and fly away. After giving a lot of thought to this, I have opted to pursue an undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance or Economics. The prime reason why I have prioritized Accounting and Finance over other fields is because I believe that Finance has the capability to revolutionize things ranging from something as small-scale as a company to the whole country. As long as money is the driving force, accountants will be leading the rest of the world. It’s an undeniable fact that accountants and finance professionals have to be ahead of times and stay abreast of the changes materializing across the globe but it’s unlikely that the profession will go obsolete any time soon. In addition to this, an Accountant has a spot fixed for himself in almost every firm, every field, industry or sector. Furthermore, Accounting & Finance is the only field which complements other subject areas well, particularly those which fall under the large bracket of business. Second best option that I consider most suitable for myself after ACF is Economics and Math. There is no aspect of our everyday life which is not influenced by economics at large. From how much money I have at my disposal to purchase what I want to how much interest I have to pay the bank when I borrow money-everything revolves around the economic skeleton of the country. I chose to study Mathematics as I enjoy how it has the capability to convey logic in numbers and variables. I love how numbers can speak so much and hold so much value which even words fail to exhibit at times. Its brilliant how math as a subject doesn’t only need concentration, but logical reasoning, common sense, a sense of rationality, and open-mindedness unlike the theory oriented courses which usually aim for rote learning. Moreover, this combination will enable me to transcend into a variety of challenging areas ranging from playing with the most complex numbers to analyzing the impact of technologies. As a student, I would rank myself with a 9/10 when it comes to meeting deadlines. My ability to work well in a team has been demonstrated in a number of group projects and the fact that I made it as the House Captain of the Student Council at my school. Not only did I develop my communication and skills, I also learnt how to negotiate and juggle tasks. At school I actively took part in the student council and organized a charity event, where we set up a lot of fun activities for the students. This was an accomplishment considering such events were unusual in my school. We raised a large sum of money which was donated to various charitable organizations. For these events to be successful, I needed to be able to communicate well with the students and ask for their opinions and preferences. This helped me improve my communication skills which will be essential for any career that I wish to embark upon. I have penned down my long term career and academic goals in black and white, and am therefore fully motivated and prepared for this degree.
