For the last two years of my secondary school education, I had the unique opportunity of selecting Commerce as my stream of interest.In addition to the general subjects such as mathematics and literature, it also included marketing, accounting and economics. I have encountered upon the theories of notable economists like Adam Smith, John M. Keynes and their successors which inspired me a lot. I also learned about markets and their imperfections, methods of raising finance, how to take timely and appropriate strategies. I found these to be fascinating areas to study, and I would love to continue my studies in more depth at university. The secondary school I attended is noted for its rigorous curriculum. From this experience I took away important skills including time management and organisational skills. I was also taught how to work under pressure, to meet deadlines and to take leadership in group projects.Qualities like ascendancy and commitment have also been important in my job as a Sports Captain. It involved preparation for Sports Day Parades and various sport activities as well as communication with students to maintain a high level of motivation. I have also been the Captain of the girls Throwball team which enhanced my ability to work with a team.Extra curricular activities have incorporated various school dramas, dances and essay writings for which I was awarded numerous certificates and trophies.  A heavy involvement in the preparation and publishing of our School magazine as a member of the Editorial Team though quite challenging was very rewarding.Business is also all about being international, so being fortunate enough I had an opportunity to travel to many foreign countries throughout my life and have excelled in foreign languages. I have a solid background in the English and Russian languages and I also know a little of French. Also I believe by integrating my passion of travelling, with work and meeting new people is a valuable experience that will teach me maturity, self-sufficiency, and other important social skillsFinally I think this program will best suit me as it  covers the business topics that interest me the most, such as Finance, Economics, Marketing. As a future business leader I must be an expert in these fields, capable of analysing and solving any practical problems I may face. I am certain that the numerous traineeships and case assignments I will take part in during this programme will help me to gain the necessary knowledge and skills.I understand that studying abroad is going to be the most challenging step in my life so far, but I also believe I can withstand any problems I will face. I would love to study at your University, because I believe I have both the academic skills and personality to excel in the course and career thereafter. I am open and friendly, and I am looking forward to getting involved in many societies and making a positive contribution to your student community.Thank you in advance for your consideration and time.
