Business management personal statement example 1
"Business is the way of the world. Shopping, buying, selling, promoting, discounting, are all business activities and we as individuals are involved with in it some way, every day. It’s a field that I am greatly interested in, and wish to learn more about. Although I have a broad range of interests, I have always been drawn to business management because to me it’s a very exciting environment with lots of demands and challenges. However the thing that excites me the most about business management is the way in can directly and indirectly affect the lives of so many people.
I am a forward thinking individual who has drive, ambition and ability, all of which are traits that are vital for effective business management. I posses strong team-working skills, am able to work individually or as part of a group, and have excellent organisational skills that I have gained through my academic and work experience. I consider my key strengths to be; an ability to make analytical judgements, people management, making decisions, assessing business situations and identifying important points. I have excellent interpersonal skills which allow me to relay business information clearly to my target audience, and can prepare well thought out, crisp presentations for both individuals or groups.
At present I am studying for my A levels at college, and what I’ve noticed about myself is that the more I have studied this subject, the more my interest in it has grown. I’ve discovered that it’s more than just management, it’s about ensuring that a customers' experience is nothing other than exceptional, while motivating a team of employees to effectively deliver the following responsibilities: exceptional customer service, building and maintaining a loyal customer base, coaching & guiding customers on product knowledge and application, calling clients for follow-ups, organising events, handling the arrival of new merchandise, and working as a team to meet individual, team and store objectives. All of these are factors which I now have a firm understanding of.
As a technically minded person I am currently working part time as a IT administrator for a networking company. The role involves me in the administration of the company's LAN/WAN network in 5 locations, performed desktop services, building the bank's new personal computers, and installation and distribution of new software. I am involved in the management of the Internet frame relay network, and have helped to develop the company's operating system migration plan for nearly all computers from Windows 98 to XP or from XP to Windows 7. I am also responsible for performing testing on all workstations and servers, ensuring their compliance or and patching the BIOS. The position requires me to work in close partnership with the management team, to ensure the provision of a full and comprehensive support to the frontline technology staff.
I feel the three most important points I learnt so far from my work experience, is firstly the ability to understand what drives a business, and the processes needed to help resolve any barriers to continued growth and profitability. Secondly being able to look beyond the numbers to the business trends and drivers, and thirdly being able to work to deadlines and handle pressure.
I am a social person who enjoys spending time with friends and family. I like to be a part of my local community, where I help out at events and activities also performing in the local pantomime! Music is a passion of mine, and I go to concerts whenever possible.
I am now looking for an opportunity to further my personal development and career progression by enrolling with a reputable university on a business management degree course. I want to learn more about the nature, power and limitations of various business techniques; how management can influence a business' performance; how business and other types of organisations can help society to function and address society's problems. After viewing many different universities and campuses I have come to the conclusion that your university is the best option for me. I aim to put as much into the course as I get out, and I very much hope that you will look favourably upon my application."
