I have always aspired to a business career that crosses different borders and cultures, and throughout the past three years I have explored various areas of business to find the area most suitable for me. In addition to specializing in business management, I have learned about marketing and other aspects of management. I have found the field of Supply Chain Management most suitable for my interests and goals and therefore I am applying to the MSc Global Supply Chain Management at Nottingham Trent University.
In today’s increasingly competitive economy, companies must have cutting-edge supply chain management in order to stay prepared for any changes in global capacity and adjust accordingly. For my future career,I hope to work as a Purchasing Manager at a company such as Nikon, which must maintain innovative development and implementation of supply chain strategies in order to stay competitive and profitable on an international scale. By studying at Nottingham Trent University, I expect to learn more about all of the links in a supply chain and how to make strategic changes as needed to ensure continued competitiveness. Through the extensive academic resources in your program, including not only the lectures but also the industry links and practical experiences, I expect to emerge with a highly practical understanding of how to manage a complex supply chain in the contemporary dynamic business world.
Since supply chain management is an inherently international field, I know that I could benefit greatly by undertaking further studies overseas, which is why I am applying to your university. By studying this program at your university, I hope to acquire more in-depth knowledge of this subject, with the goal of going on to a career as a Purchasing Manager. This will require me to have a keen understanding of all links in the supply chain. Through the lectures, case studies, and research projects undertaken in your program, I expect to soon have the skills necessary to help companies ensure a competitive supply chain.
In other words, I view an education in Nottingham Trent University as a crucial stepping stone towards my future career.
