STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Finance can be defined as the art of money management. To learn the skills of doing so,I am applying for the Bachelor of Commerce under Sobey School of Business at Saint Marys University. I intend to major in Finance because growing up I realized the value of money and how important it is for our society to utilize it properly. Graduating with this degree will take me a step closer to my end goal of being a Chief Financial Officer at a reputed firm.
After the completion of my IGCSE exam on June 2016, I sat for my Advanced Subsidiary exam on May 2017 underprepared. Later, on the year I got profoundly invested in high school sports which resulted in deviation from my academic responsibilities. In January 2018, I decided to pick up the slack and sat for IELTS exam in which I earned a glorious score of 7.5. This boosted my confidence immensely given that I previously I earned a Grade D on my IGCSE English Language Exam. Over the years observing my fathers profession as a business man inspired me to finally change from a Science background to a Commerce background. Indulging in business and accounting books helped me learn about how I can shape my career. After appearing for my Advance Subsidiary exams on May 2018 I passed with thriving results in Business Studies which encouraged me to involve Accounting into my academics. At the moment, I am sitting for some of the units of my Alevel exams and I am planning to finish the rest of it by June 2019.I strongly believe in the quote Finish what you start, boy. This is why it is important for me to finish my Advanced Levels Exams before I begin my new journey in a University.
The educational institutions in Canada offer a pleasant learning environment, and as an international student I will have the opportunity to grow in rich multicultural and social experience, and also acquire sound academic background allowing me job opportunities in my field of expertise after completion of my course at Saint Marys University, Canada. I believe that the subject I have chosen would greatly enhance my knowledge and learning to develop myself for a successful career,and would help me discern the desired path for my career development in the field of finance.
The Sobey School of Business at Saint Marys University is the most respected business school in Eastern Canada. Saint Marys University provides a global, enriching experience for students through cutting-edge technologies, communications and environments .The other main reason why I have a keen interest in attending SMU is because they prioritize sports, especially soccer which happens to be very valuable to me. After being the captain of both the football and volleyball team and achieving the All Rounder of the year award from my school, joining SMU soccer team would not only keep me close to my passion but also would be a dream come true.
As far as Halifax is concerned, other than being one of the most serene and secluded parts of the country it also offers a lot to explore.
I grew up with two brothers. The elder one is currently attending Northern Illinois University of Chicago and is doing a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. Therefore, I plan to be the one who has to take care of my fathers business when the time comes. I also have a younger brother to come home to and mentor. This is basically why I plan to come back to my country with a honorable degree from a well-renowned University like Saint Marys with which I will also have a certain set of fine skills and a wide range of undisputable understanding of the finance world .Using the following factors mentioned above I can improve, develop and enhance the financial management of my countrys economy. Notice how I ended my statement with what I started with; just like Coldplay wrote in Scientist running in circles, coming in tails.
