Perfection is not within the realms of possibility, but I always knew if I aim for perfection, I could at least achieve excellence. This is the mantra I have followed in every walk of life. I have always learnt to appreciate everything I have taken up, thoroughly and to the fullest. In this competitive pace of life, I have learnt a lot from my experiences and I am still striving to learn more. I constantly challenged myself in an effort to develop a rational mindset and approach to problem solving.
Despite my progression to a senior level in my field, there are still aspects of my field that I do not fully understand. I have excelled as a Business Systems Analyst for many years; however, I hope to learn more about business to help me better understand the needs of my business partners. I also hope to learn more about the many facets of Information Technology so I can begin to move toward strategic solutions development.
I will start by briefly evaluating my reasons behind why I chose the course to be my number one choice in my UCAS application in the first place and later on I shall analyse whether my expectations for the course had been fulfilled or not. Going back to when I was compiling my UCAS application, what appealed to me most about the Information Management for Business (IMB) course was how the course was being developed by e-skills in close collaboration with some of the worlds largest and most successful companies such as ‘British Airways, BT, Computer Associates, Ford, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Morgan Stanley, Aviva, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Procter & Gamble, Capgemini, Accenture and Unilever’. This fact made me optimistic in my outlook of finding a desirable job upon graduating, since I thought I could ultimately end up working at one of those companies in the future. In addition to this, the fact that the course had the focus of deve...
“Constant efforts, dedication, devotion and determination are the key to success” This principle I have followed in my career. Setting goals and striving hard to accomplish them has always been my strength in professional as well as personal life. I have always been amazed by computers, code –programs and was keen to understand the underlying meaning, gimmick, structure and pattern of how programs actually work. Learning about simple Foxpro programs, excel sheet formulae, C programs at an early age heightened my interest in computer programs. This childhood interest urged me to do a diploma in information technology and later bachelor’s degree in the same area. Having completed six years course in Information Technology, and two years of experience in IT. I stand by the principal “Stay Hungry” and this has helped me in achieving my goals. Standing by this I would like to explore ahead and pursue MS in MIS. I would like emerge to put to use this knowledge to pursue MS program in MIS.
"The best way to predict future is to create it"- Peter Drucker. I strongly believe in this statement that taking action now can help you shape the life you want to live. I’m a firm believer that you can determine your own destiny if you make your own future. After scrutinizing my interests, past trainings and final ambition, I have realized that a masters degree in Business & Information System will help me to achieve my future career goal in Information Systems. My proclivity is more specifically towards Business Analytics and data science. I see an MS program in the USA as a crucial step towards achieving my career objective because not only it is the birthplace of my chosen field of study but also it has nurtured it for its full growth and continuous development.
I am currently employed as a Software Engineering Senior Analyst at Accenture. The Information system advances so rapidly that at times it is too difficult to keep up with it without proper knowledge and experience. While most of the people do get a relatively easy entry in the field after under graduation, it is very difficult to aim for a constant growth only on that basis. The field demands upgraded knowledge and experience for career growth and (achieve goals). And that is why I aspire, to pursue Masters in Management Information Systems at your esteemed University.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE “Time and tide wait for no man” Being well acknowledged about the above saying has pushed me a mile further for every aspect of my life. The four year engineering course in Information Technology has always been a beautiful experience and has inspired me to put the knowledge into my Masters degree. This would allow me to enhance my knowledge about technology and its pros and cons and the guidance I would need. Gone are those days when man had to slog for simple works, he has advanced into boundaries which are unimaginable and has made his life easy, being an essential part of such an advancement has always been my motive. To attain my goal, my first priority would be in the field of research which will consist experiencing the applications in the real world steered by comprehensive know-how about technology.
