please share your input

the platform to grow



A Graduate in Computer Science, and 13 years of experience in the telecom and finance sector, I presently lack an MBA degree which is an accepted and required credential for career advancement and increasing my contribution to the sector. Ever since I started working I have nurtured a dream of becoming a part of the top level management team of a large multinational organization as well as gaining some insights to entrepreneur approach for my future plan for my NGO. In recent years, the business world has become rapidly integrated across and anyone with high goals is expected to have an international perspective and be aware of the realities of different international arenas.

At this point of my career I need an MBA that has both traditional and practical approach to learning. Based on this I chose my universities:

1.Cass Business school(City university London):Located in the City of London with unparalleled links with international businesses, the Cass Business School Full-time MBA programme is one of the most highly respected and prestigious MBAs in the UK and Europe. The program structure have a good mix of lectures, workshops, live projects and overseas ventures which rightly fits to what I was looking forward. The program structure carries electives which have a good blend of management and entrepreneurship. It has triple accreditation and is well ranked and recognized globally.

2.Birmingham business school (Birmingham University): Having read and understood the program structure of Birmingham MBA, the program along with the practical approach is very unique. It includes ideal mix of theory and real life experience. it is internationally-acclaimed, constantly ranked in global ranking tables and accredited by leading bodies AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS .In conclusion, I believe that studying at Birmingham business school will be a great experience.

3.Exeter MBA (university of Exeter): The Exeter One planet MBA builds on the track record of leading innovation in the MBA market. The business school is part of the Russell Group Business School. The MBA program highly focusses on personal and professional development and also lays its emphasis on real life learning with most of the modules on live projects which helps in practical knowledge. The program also focused on how global economic, social, environmental and technological challenges are impacting on business and the workplace which is the interesting part. It is triple accredited and is well ranked. The program also have modules and electives on entrepreneurship and overall the program take care of both the routes.

After carefully selecting the above three universities I am confident that it will take care of my future aspiration by enhancing my skills and knowledge. All the three universities can provide me a platform to grow and transform my life. I can be a better leader, an entrepreneur and a global citizen. The universities have a good mix of students from many countries which would help to understand different markets and get firsthand experience of different economies. All of these universities have a well selected cohort with a decent student to professor ratio. If I am privilege to get the opportunity to study at any of these universities through chevening scholarship I am sure it would help me grow both personally and professionally through rightful knowledge and bring the best out of me.

Ellora, one of the requirements of these Chevening essays is that you are not supposed to repeat information that you have already indicated in previous essays. Therefore, your having 13 years work experience is a redundancy that must be removed, along with the reference to your being a graduate of computer science. However, you can indicate that you had awards and recognition during your academic time which proves that you have the background and the ability to complete any of the course requirements for the 3 courses, whichever one you enroll in. You may then start another paragraph about ""Ever since I started working..." which will end with the listing of your 3 universities.

Remove all reference to the location of universities and obviously common information such as "unparalleled links with international business" or "constantly ranked in global ranking tables..." and "builds on the track record of..." Those are just word fillers that do not accomplish anything with regards to explaining how any of these courses will contribute to your future career goals in terms of job applicability and what sort of academic and professional foundation you have which will ensure a successful year of masters study for each course.

The addition of the more important information will require you to write a shorter and more appropriate closing statement. Right now, you should delete the parts I mentioned, including the closing statement, work on adding the necessary data, and then develop a more appropriate closing statement.

@Holt if you can please share your inputs

Having successfully worked and managed assignments professionally and winning many rewards and recognition, I realized that I needed a management degree which could connect me to broader horizon and be part of the ever changing world.

Ever since I started working I have nurtured a dream of becoming a part of the top level management team of a large multinational organization as well as gaining some insights to entrepreneur approach for my future plan of starting my NGO.For me a management degree is one that will teach and groom me to the next level. So I am looking at enrolling myself to a matured MBA program that takes care of reputation, have a highly structured global content, and has a small cohort and a good mix of nationalities.

At this point of my career I also need an MBA that has both traditional and practical approach to learning. Based on all of the above I chose my universities:

1.Cass Business school (City university London): Cass Business School Full-time MBA programme is one of the most highly respected and prestigious MBA. The program structure have a good mix of lectures, workshops, live projects and overseas ventures which rightly fits to what I was looking for. The program carries electives which have a good blend of management and entrepreneurship which will help me design the next decisive phase of my career.

2.Birmingham business school (Birmingham University): MBA International business is a unique program structured with a global business perspective with four enterprise projects in UK and worldwide that will help to get a first-hand experience of different learning environment. I found this structure a good learning platform and it connects well to my future plans building my NGO to a global platform .International perspective will provide meaningful insights on how the corporate world , the economies would shape up in future and I am sure I can relate these live projects to future assignments .

3.Exeter MBA (university of Exeter): The business school is part of the Russell Group Business School. The One planet MBA program highly focusses on personal and professional development .The modules are well taught on live projects. The program also focuses on how global economies, social, environmental and technological challenges are impacting on business and the workplace which caught my attention. The program also have modules and electives on entrepreneurship and overall that takes care of both the routes I am looking forward in the future.

What I also learnt is that the MBA programs are highly competitive which demands self-discipline and long study hours and assignments. These characteristics are well in me as working every day with deadlines, with teams have inculcated in me to work in high pressured, demanding schedule. I am also confidant that having the opportunity to study at any of the three universities, with the help of chevening scholarship, will take me to the next level where I can see myself as a successful professional helping towards economic development of a country and also a person who can be a part of the social change where we can have a better world to live for ourselves and future generations.

It's very good but lacking in the academic foundation reference that is required as part of the explanation of how your academic studies and professional achievements have helped to prepare you for a masters degree course. The academic foundation should be the paragraph before the course outline. The professional experience in relation to the programs chosen need to be depicted on an individualized level as well. So the format of the sentences should be:

1. Reason you chose the course.
2. Relevant academic foundation (class, internship, or other academically related experience)
3. Relevant professional experience that connects with the program.
4. Future work application.

Based on the format I gave you, this means that you have to present a general academic description first. Then you explain specialized courses that you took in relation to the masters degree you chose. The relevant work experience should be self explanatory, as well as the future job application.

You can actually remove the reference to your skills that you believe makes you a perfect MS student and instead, bring down the work experience explanation that you have opening the essay at the moment. It will be more balanced with an academic presentation first, professional experience, last presentation of paragraphs. You then have an appropriate opening and closing statement for your essay.

Overall, this is shaping up to become a pretty solid essay. A few more tweaks are required but you should be able to come up with a new, more usable version based on my instructions above.
