LETTER of MOTIVATION
My name is Ibrahim Usman, a Nigerian with a keen interest in the economic theme of development. I am expressing my intent to join the Master of Arts programme in Development Management at the Ruhr University Bochum. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I was introduced to various faces of development: research methods, business and economic development, community service, the engagements of the European Union and developing countries, and the world economy as a whole.
While I have recently completed a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Bauchi State University in my home country, I have really good grades in my bachelor's degree. I really like the structure of the course, and therefore, I am quite interested in this master's degree course in development management to enable me to gain more knowledge and experience and, in turn, help my community solve the problem of high levels of illiteracy and poverty through a mentorship programme because I strongly believe there are a lot of young brilliant people in my community who lack the knowledge, courage, support, and confidence for personal development and believe in traditional ways of life.
My main aim for these studies is to gain general knowledge about development management, including business development, project management, community service, research, policy making, etc.
After my award, I hope to engage in diplomatic and consultancy work on international issues like trade, policy, economics, poverty eradication, and more. My responsibilities include building relationships and offering advice for or with government and organisations, collecting and reporting information to their home country, and mentoring the younger ones in my community, at the state and federal levels, and the rest of the world. To contribute to creating equal opportunities for young professionals by strengthening young men's and women's participation in leadership in policy-making, planning, and implementation processes and the use of technology and to be able to breach the gap of inequality.
You can find all the important documents with the application that can help me secure admission. Meanwhile, I consider myself a suitable candidate for admission and a scholarship for this programme.
Thank You in Advance

The last 2 paragraphs are actually what will help you create a correct motivational letter. The reviewer does not want to read an extended version of your academic transcript. He can refer to those as a separate document. Focus on the actual point of the essay, which is explaining the importance and necessity of your studies to your profession and in the process, your home country. Develop the last 2 paragraphs in a manner that will allow you to show your drive as an individual seeking a successful career and a professional who wants to contribute to the betterment of your country. Do not spend the essay repeating your academic path. The second paragraph could actually be revised to be your first paragraph, creating a more directed motivational letter.
