My choice of Waseda’s Business School for my professional business career’s training was based on the following reasons:
The primary reason is the existence of an exceptional, international full-time two-year program, which will definitely help me acquire much more strength for the strategy of my plans of business management, leadership skills and business analytical skills for possible and promising future careers, available in a global era; furthermore, it will enhance my abilities for optimal researches and future education on more advanced and specialized academic courses or training.
Secondly, the course’s structure of small-scale classrooms and working groups provide me a perspective of better interaction, both between professors and students, and colleagues; this way, the learning processes appear optimized, expecting to get the most from all the subjects that constitute this college’s course. Additionally, providing a variety of different ethnicities among colleagues will enhance my global business perspectives, as the contact with different cultures allows the horizons on business contexts to widen; along with this, the ability for adaptation to various scenarios and situations is better, which enlarges possibilities of future job opportunities. By making interpersonal relationship and group work closer, it will serve as the basis for practical business in the future: my colleagues and I will be able to learn the importance of cooperation and supportive attitude.
The third and most crucial reason is that student’s exchange programs that this college presents provide an amazing opportunity to study at Booth School of Business, in Chicago University. I would personally like to have a chance for it to contribute, not only to my business knowledge evolution in future professional relations with clients, but also to be a continuity to achieve a Master career on Business.
Along with these reasons, I also have a long-term goal planned, which is to pursue presidency of Yanbian University in Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, in China. This personal project of mine will contribute for cultural and educational undertakings on my hometown, and for important ethnological development.
Later on my professional pathway and together with all the previous optimal training acquired on Waseda’s Business School, I also have the ambition of continuing with my studies on a doctoral program, a MBA, which will provide further knowledge and status for even better career prospects, becoming a portrait of this fine institution’s program.
If I am given with the chance to study at Waseda’s Business School, I will strive for a chance in one of the finest international exchange programs, so that I may be able to pursue my goal of studying at Booth school of Business, in the University of Chicago. And to achieve such accomplishment, it is my objective to become one of your best students and a source of prestige for the school.
During my studies’ pathway at a full-time, two-year program of Waseda’s Business school, I also intend to publish in specialty journals, Business area newspapers, magazines or others. In addition to this, I will search for attendance at a variety of academic conferences and activities which may be related to my major, or complement it. As my study advances on this fine program, I will also learn extremely valuable notions from talking with my pairs, which can be even more fruitful to further develop my business conversation skills.
World economy’s structure has been gradually changing, since financial crisis happened in the American continent. Some of the Eastern countries had a growth in their economy, especially China, Japan and Korea, which have occupied 20% of share in the world’s GDP by 2012; that is almost equal to American GDP, having a wide range of potential opportunities for cooperation in machinery, automotive industry and agriculture. However, currently, this type of cooperation has also faced a variety of problems.
After graduating from my aimed Waseda’s MBA, I hope to have the opportunity to use my Chinese, Korean, Japanese and English language skills to add up to my experience in Waseda's MBA, serving the objective of becoming useful in Eastern Asia cooperation case studies; this way, I will use my academic research skills, together with motivational energy and valuable information through my ethnological background to work with profit and non-profit organizations, gathering, analyzing and developing new and innovative ideas that may become new business models to follow by others, pursuing the above mentioned cooperation between our Nations.
The Eastern Asia is a very rich region, economically; furthermore, the establishment of strong-based relations with such region would be of both economic and geopolitical interest since by strengthening this region’s economy, the cooperative Nations would benefit economically from it, but would also give an advantage to friendly political relations as well, which, in its turn, would be useful for maintaining the much aimed peace.
Of course, one of the things that difficult the establishment of such strong, friendly relations is a latent lack of common knowledge about the culture and habits; in these cases, the existence of a cohesive team, in which members should have a good knowledge about it comes the advantage of my background:
Belonging to such cultural context, together with solid and developed business skills, my knowledge could become critical for the research of new academic studies that lead to new business visions and plans that would be in conformity with such cultures’ peculiarities, reaching for a crescent familiarity with them, easing the relations’ process.
In a time when social networks have been the communication leaders across the world, I look forward to the day when I can use my social network to possibly be able to provide more assistance to people who are missing business opportunities, which are frankly lacking for economic growth and evolution. If properly planned, oriented, financed, leaded and wired together, it will be possible to construct a framework of solutions that can keep peace and create a more competitive Eastern Asia.
Personally, I think the MBA is well worth it, even for this non-traditional sector. As I mentioned before, I also think that the skills learned in a top quality MBA are directly applicable to the non-profit sector and, through this, to have the ability to give people like me a huge advantage. There is nothing as rewarding as a career with social impact; and this, yes, is another of my aims. So that, in the future, I can make a difference and show others how to, individually, do the same; all together, we will make possible a new world.
