Hi, I am from Brazil and applying for a business school in Netherlands. Please you guy could tell me if that the mistakes that i have including gramaticaly.
contributing the classroom environment at Radboud
My name is XXXXXX, and would like to be a professional who combines the analyses of large amount of data from different sources with business strategic. The course structure of XXXXXXXXXX fits completely in my desire to be a professional with those qualities. Moreover, I believe that my diversified studies and work background would contribute the classroom environment.
I have studied Economic in one of the most prestigious universities in Brazil. In the beginning of my course I start an internship in a governmental economic research institution which had several professors of my university. Thereby, I had the opportunity to work with research in the field that I studied having close contact with my professors.
The next step in my career aroused my interest in programming and data analysis. I start to work in an energy trading company XXXXXXX as back office. While working and studying for my degree I started to learning programming languages, first by myself in online courses at coursera, and after doing presential courses. With this knowledge I successfully change for the risk analysis sector, working with strong models of energy price forecast. After 2 years working at XXXXX I had the opportunity to work abroad in a short term trainee program at XXXXX in London for 4 months, this international experience contributed for my self-development whereas I could improve my English skill and my knowledge in econometrics models.
Returning to my country in 2013, I participated in a trainee process for future leaders at Saraiva with more than 10000 candidates and was accepted by the company. XXXXX is one of the biggest retail companies, the biggest book seller in Brazil and one of the biggest publisher in the educational field. In the trainee program, I had several courses in finance and project management, a leadership coaching program for self-development and a rotate program in different areas of the company. During my trainee period I see some of Synergistic opportunities in both arms that the company operates, the editorial and bookseller. Therewith, I start new projects in the CRM area, using the data provides by the bookstore consumers for new products and new ways to treat relevant costumer for the publishing house, etc. Working in those projects presented as challenges, involving different business (retail and publisher) and different areas (I.T, Commercial, CRMs, supply chain) which demanded me a strong capacity of negotiation, communication and critical analyses.
These were some of my professional experiences that certain would contribute in my studies at XXXXXXX. I always been working while studying for my degree, hence, this master will be a valuable time to improve my knowledge in areas that I have strong interest. I am very attracted in some course modules as Strategic Decision Making which will provide me the theoretical vision of the company's decision and how to approach with a solution that need to manage with human resources and still maintaining the profitability of the company. Furthermore, the business and management subjects will fill some gaps in those skills, seeing that I had just a practical experience in some of those subjects.
