I’m choosing to study MSc Management at UCL as its modules such as Accounting, Finance and Business economics are already incorporated within my BSc Accounting & Business Economics degree and are topics I am very fond of but I would also love to study deeper into business and management and UCL is exactly what I am looking for, combining topics that I’m already so fervent about and looking into a broader business view. As well as engaging with academic staff, I also look forward to interacting and learning from UCL’s diverse range of students in the MSc Management programme. I believe I have the ideas, innovation and tenacity to succeed to be a beneficial student of the Management Science and Innovation department in an internationally recognised institution such as the UCL. Being in such an intellectually rich environment will develop and amplify all the qualities I have to enable me to procure a prominent position in management. My second year at university has sharpened my whole thinking process and enabled me to realise how I could contribute to the business world and the dexterity I have in order to succeed in an organisation. One the captivating tasks of my second year financial accounting module was to analyse the annual reports of Rolls Royce and BAE systems for investment purposes and use this to produce a written report and develop a presentation with four other students to present to the module leaders and another group. In addition I was also assigned to manage the group thus delegating each individual to evaluate a specific section of the annual report and I effectively utilized each person’s aptitude to match their contribution to the given task. I took the opportunity to apply ratio analysis in both companies’ financial statements. Our team work and effort resulted in a first class grade in both my report and my oral presentation but more importantly it showed me how to adapt to a managerial role and use my interpersonal skills to help my team mates and myself to achieve our goals. I am now more confident that I wish to pursue postgraduate studies in Management as the skills I possess can be fully utilized in this career path. I am very excited by the consultancy project that UCL has to offer and I will no doubt replicate the same commitment reflected in my previous group project but to a much higher degree and show how diligent I am in studying in management and practically applying what I have learnt. Upon my completion of the MSc I hope move into general strategy consultancy and I aim to specialising into sales and marketing strategies. I have achieved high First Class grades in all of my modules and I am continuing this effort but even more so through my final year. I hope this is only the beginning in my journey to seek knowledge and experience in order to attain an executive role in an organisation and only a world renowned institution with global links such as UCL can provide me guidance to succeed in 21st century business and also help me develop as a human being.
