Dear Sir/ Madam,
My passion and curiosity about IBM had been cherished since college life and still now that curiosity increasing day by day.I am writing this letter for a position in the masters of International Business Management programme, offered by the University of Oulu.With my current experience as a customer service and relationship officer (CSR),I wish to expand my knowledge of strategic thinking and analytical thinking. After a long observation of the course’s curriculum available online,I have found that the subject materials and outcomes will the best suit to my career goals and expectations.Besides, I want to equip myself with innovative knowledge of business designing and leadership practices, which will later help me to start my own business.
I was a student of arts in school and had been interested in pursuing a business degree since those days because I had strong inspiration from my parents and school teachers.From the beginning of my undergraduate study, the field of business attracted me so much that from that time onward I started to dream of pursuing my higher studies in life that deal with business and management. For this reason,I admitted myself in Bachelor of Business Administration in my undergraduate level. My long-term aim is to actively involve in the field of business, finance, and management, hence I would like to gain more knowledge.It’s clear to me that a successful International Business Management degree will provide me an excellent foundation for a career in companies and organizations active in an international environment.
With this letter, I wish to put across my interest in studying a Master’s degree program under the faculty of business school especially International Business at the University of Oulu.I graduated with a Bachelor of Business (Finance) from International Islamic University Chittagong, Bangladesh with cumulative grade point average (CGPA) 3.767 in the scale of 4.00,(first class first). To further prepare myself for the program I completed a thesis project as the name of “Determination of Foreign Exchange Reserve: An Economic Analysis Of Bangladesh Experience” under the supervision of Associate professor “Md. Zahangir Alam from my respective university.
During my university life,I was very active in many co-curricular activities.I formed a number of cooperative associations with my friends among those RED(relationship and Economic Developments) is still very successful.It gives me inspirations to be a perfect former where I must need deep theoretical knowledge of business and management.Further,I remained engaged in university affairs by volunteering for the students union’s programs.In this program my duties varied from taking prospective students on tours, arranging debates and sports competitions..Lastly, with all of the responsibilities at hand, I remained vigilant with my academic performance. I was hence awarded 50% tuition fees waived which were given to top 2 performers of the department for the highest academic merit amongst my peers.
At the time of selecting major subjects in university,I wanted to take both Finance and International Business, but due to unavailability of IB- I choose only Finance. Besides major study area: International Trade Theories, Global Strategy are the reasons for which I wish to participate in your program.
Whenever I am preparing for higher education and I found the master’s programme in International Business Management at the University of Oulu on studyinfinland.fi, and I noticed that my bachelor’s degree gave me an appropriate shape to pursue this programme and I can fulfill my dream.The experiences, I gathered during university’s program management and my current work’s knowledge also caused me to think about management, and especially management at international organizations and I decided to get a master’s degree in international business.
Moreover,I have a strong preference to study International Business and Management, due to its international environment.Being conducted the IB programme at the University of Oulu, Economics and Business Administration Business School, I will have the chances to take part in the Institute’s life, for instance, discuss the challenges and different issues presented by global business and economy and benefit from various activities and seminars held there. The Institute’s international focus and aim will help me to gain a wide knowledge of international businesses and markets.Further, living in Oulu, which is, one of the largest nature and culture-oriented city with modern technology.
I strongly believe the theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge that I will acquire during the master’s programme at the University of Oulu will help me greatly to build a very successful business venture in my country.I expect that you will offer me a place in the IBM programme considering my previous achievement in the bachelor’s studies and my future aspirations.
I am looking forward to being a part of this prestigious program.
