1. Why do you want to do a masters degree? Describe how you believe a master’s degree fits in with your career plans.
My main goals behind receiving an MBA at this point in my life are two-fold. I would like to pursue a change in my career and further my business education. I have come to this conclusion after many years of introspection and realizations about where my career is, and where I would like it to be.
My first goal for going to business school is to learn more about areas of Finance, Strategy and planning to help me change my career into Strategy Consulting. I have only had work experience with the Marketing and sales procedures of a business, and I would enjoy the challenge of exploring other areas. I intend to further pursue this interest after getting my MBA. After passing out from IE, I intend to join a consulting firm and specialize in a particular industry segment. This will enable me to gain valuable insights and experience into the issues facing the top Management and how best to resolve them. With this experience, a couple of years down the line, I would like to join the ranks of top Management in a fortune 500 company. My ultimate goal, however, is to eventually become the CEO of a large company.
My second reason is to get a better grounding in Finance, Strategy, Operations, and General Management. I feel that learning about these other areas of business will help make me a well-rounded manager, who understands completely all of the inner workings of a company. I know that receiving an MBA will help me acquire the skills to become the type of manager I desire to be.
