My My main intent in pursuing master’s program

My undergraduate program (Bachelor of Commerce – B.Com) has given me a solid foundation in the basic aspects of the business world and subjects such as Accountancy, Finance, Economics and Management. It whetted my appetite for gaining further knowledge in these practical subjects. I completed B.Com from Garware Collage of Commerce (One of the esteemed collages for Commerce in Pune, India) with distinction in the year 2013.  Later on, I chose to pursue the Master of Commerce program (with specialization in Commercial Laws) at Savitribai Phule Pune University, where I successfully passed with Higher First Class in the year 2016. This made me realize that I would like to enhance my adroitness in finance and practical knowledge.  Along with my regular course, I have completed professional course organized by The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) with 18 months of practical training under CS Bageshri Milind Kshirsagar as an intern.  I have completed the course in the year 2014. Currently I am pursuing a course called Certification in Management Accounting (CMA) from The Institute of Management Accountants, USA. I have cleared one group of the course, out of the two. This has given me an exposure in various subjects like Financial Analysis, Risk Management and Corporate Finance. After completing the Professional Course organized by ICSI I started working with corporate legal consulting firm namely “BJ and Associates” as a Corporate Legal Consultant. I have been working there since last 2 years. During this period, I have handled secretarial audits and legal matters with respect to intellectual property rights and commercial laws. I have also handled audit assignments of internal control systems and compliances of Foreign Exchange Management Act in India. My main intent in pursuing master’s program is to gain knowledge in the field of Finance and Investment Banking. I am particularly interested in the analytical aspects of this field and want to concentrate on Financial Theories, Financial Analysis, Financial Econometrics, Corporate Finance, and Portfolio Management.I would like to enhance my skills in the field of finance and investment banking to achieve a competent and respectable position in the corporate world. The knowledge of these subjects will help me achieve my goal in future which is to work as a financial advisor. I have always believed that hard work and dedication is of utmost importance. If one can induce these qualities, thriving future lies ahead of him. I did some research and realised that there are plenty of opportunities for post graduation courses in this field. The post graduation program offered by your university will fulfil my professional goal as well as increase my skills and capabilities. I have opted for MSc in Finance from your University which has a high academic standing and reputation of being one of the best universities in Ireland. I have opted for this university because of its modern teaching techniques, excellent infrastructure and diverse variety of subjects which I can choose during the course. The same course anywhere else would not have given me such an all round experience. Also, the practical teaching approach of the course supplemented by the theoretical knowledge is very much essential in understanding the subjects.I crave for learning new things which will help me to gain knowledge and study all diversified subjects. Also I would like to add that, my main motive to do this course in your university is to obtain knowledge in the field of strategic planning, international capital markets, and financial analysis. Also, I am eager to study in a different country which will give me a chance to explore a new culture. This unique experience will give me immense value addition and make me a better professional as well as a better human being.I have chosen your university considering the unique design of this course, excellent infrastructure and pleasant atmosphere.
