I have always believed that a true leader is the one who does not only spread the passion for work and inspire others but changes the ways of how other people live and think. Billions of people have heard about Amazon, Facebook, or Tesla, and it took enormous effort and talent to establish these corporations and make them prosper. Everything rises on effective leadership, and, therefore, my long-term post-MBA goal is to become a visionary and make my own contribution to the global society.
My life goal is to become a Senior Manager of a large multinational corporation that manufactures goods, and I dream of becoming a CEO who drives organizational changes and ensures sustainable growth of the company. I truly believe that becoming a leader of a large corporation that operates in the education sector, transportation or manufacturing industries will let me discover all talents, realize my full potential, and contribute to the growth and prosperity of the society.
However, I have a clear understanding that a long journey begins with a single step, and right after getting an MBA, I plan to start working as an associate consultant in one of global management consultancies like McKenzie or Delloitte, which would let me improve my problem-solving and business management skills. At the same time, my plan B is to get a position at the company that offers business advisory services so that I can gain more experience and an extensive background in the field to reapply for the position in a global consulting firm.
The main reason I strive to get an MBA is that it is the next step for me to take to reach my long-term goals; I have already developed certain skills and gained a deep knowledge of various business processes in real estate and construction sectors, and it is high time to take the step out of my comfort zone and find new challenges to overcome.
Becoming a member of the MBA program will definitely become a great challenge, by overcoming which I will become a better person and a greater professional. I am currently looking for a career move so that I can expand my horizons and gain a broader perspective to effectively run a large company in future.
I have been working as a Project manager and a business development analyst, and this professional experience helped me gain a clear understanding that initiative and self-direction of a leader are the crucial factors, which have a direct impact on the overall performance of the company. I learned how to utilize statistical pricing models and enhance profitability through improving collaboration between different departments, but I lack the business education to form my own vision on how to run companies and gain competitive advantages over rival firms. Moreover, I need to gain a deeper understanding of various business concepts, develop managerial skills, and expand my business network to become an effective leader who is able to drive the company toward success.
I am certain that MBA is an appropriate degree that will help me open the doors to new opportunities. At the current stage in my career, I face limits to growth, and to further develop my talents, I need to find new hurdles to overcome. The man who never tries will never win, and I am ready to devote all my time and effort to get an MBA degree that will help me make the next career step and a big move in my life journey.
