Several years ago while on my fifth grade tour of the local food processing facility, I had an opportunity to interact with one of the administrators of the facility. He seemed to have an aura on significance about himself. While he seemed not to get himself involved in the main activity of working on specific stations along the conveyor belt, he virtually knew the entire operation. As we were guided through the diverse sections of the facility, he still kept up with all the plethora information from these sections. He explained to us the entire process of getting French beans from the farms through to the shelf of the local convenience store. That was the day my fascination with the insights of business administration was conceived.
Throughout my high school, my dream to major in Business Administration has never dissipated. My fascination with the insights of the corporate world gave me the motivation to win the statewide business management contest in my last year in senior high school. This contest sponsored by Walmart; was basically an examination of the student’s understanding of the diverse decisions that a CEO of a conglomerate needs to make in the face of growing competition and dwindling demand.
Upon graduation from High school, I performed exceptionally well in all my units. But most significantly, my average grade for all the subjects relevant to this course was an A. This serves as an attestation that my choice for this major did not come by chance, or settling for second best. I want to pursue Business Administration as undergraduate and later proceed to a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). I believe that the undergraduate program is designed to impart on the student an array of knowledge that is relevant numerous departments of a company. I intend to learn all these in order to understand, in professional terms the interconnection that these areas have in order to bring about a successful firm. I also hope to be exposed in details, the practical management skills, timely decision- making capability, and other managerial skill.
I would say that the support I have received from my family is enormous. My uncle Jim, who runs an export agency on his own, has been phenomenal in shaping my dream. Being a graduate from the Harvard School of Business, he has over the years supplied me with the School’s Periodicals to accentuate my knowledge. He was also very instrumental in my triumph in the state-wide contest. Both my father and mother have done their fair share despite the fact that neither is in any business related professions.
After the completing my studies, I hope to join any reputable company as a management trainee so as to learn the practical real life skills of the corporate world. I do hope that with persistent hard work and a continued refinement of my skills, I will rise to the echelon of business administration. Should I get admittance to a reputable business school, preferably Harvard; I will work hard to graduate with highest Honors’ to grant myself better stead in my hopes of joining a good company with the state. It is my hope that I will one day enthusiastically answer the questions of eager students as I take them on a tour of a firm that I will be the Chief Executive because this is how I earned my inspiration.
