Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on development plan. Having been into Loughborough expanded my interests and knowledge better. I came to realize that Business Management requires me to be well-rounded. Having numerical skills is an advantage, but there are other traits required of me such as a good market sense, excellent inter personal skills, people skills and management. Along the way, I felt the drive to improve in each area. Most of my subjects became the driving force for me to be always one step ahead of my curriculum. I also took pains in improving my communication skills and became involved in activities that helped me become a good speaker and enabled me to improve my public relations skills. My one year internship in PricewaterhouseCoopers, Hong Kong, gave me the opportunity to put my skills and knowledge into practice, as I became involved in customer management while I assisted in providing accounting and business advice to clients. Being in the workplace challenged me not to make mistakes. Accuracy is one of the goals I had to achieve, being in a situation that allowed me to influence the clients business decisions. For one year, I was able to see Business Management on a personal note, seeing firsthand the challenges that businessmen face. Figures, when transformed into useful data, can make or break a business. From then, I had a much clearer vision of what I want to do after pursuing my bachelors degree in Business Management. I see myself employed in a Multi National company, rising from the ranks in the span of ten years, most probably specializing in Marketing and Financial Management. My short-term goal includes immediately getting into a post graduate degree in Business Management after my graduation. Pursuing higher studies will translate into obtaining better qualifications so I can land a good job in any of my dream companies. A Masters Degree will also enhance my skills, provide me more opportunities to hone academic skills and hopefully, apply them in a real business setting. I plan to do this by getting an entry level job in the middle of pursuing my Masters Degree. I firmly believe that one can only fully understand the concepts learned in school by putting them into practical use. Having a real job will allow me to do this. To succeed in post graduate school will prove to be a challenging feat to me, but I see no reason why I would fail. Academically speaking, I have sufficient knowledge and experience for me to understand the ropes of this course. My quantitative skills and immense interest in Business will definitely get me across my goals. I also recognize my personal skills that would help me get through graduate school. I am a results oriented person who always has a set of goals, short term and long term, to accomplish. I set my own pace basing on the goals that I have set. I am motivated, self driven, who always strive for excellence in the things I do. I am highly inquisitive, always wanting to go deeper into my interests. Moreover, I consider myself to have above average leadership skills. I have the ability to encourage a group of people towards achieving goals. Further to this, I have special interest in the culture and the arts, which was brought forth by the fact that I have travelled in various countries and immersed into difference cultures.
