MBA Business, Environmental Sciences

I am writing this essay on behalf of my application to study in the MBA Program at XXXX University. I am a very dedicated and hard-working woman from India who has lived in the United States since 2003. I feel that I am a strong candidate for your program since I have a doctoral degree in Environmental Sciences from XXXX University in India and many years of experience in my native country managing several businesses as well as doing research concerning theoretical and methodological issues related to the management of business information systems in India and on an international level. Now, I want very much to return to graduate school in America to better prepare myself as a business professional in the international arena.

I grew up in a loving and supportive family and have always kept myself busy in various social activities--before, during, and after college. I am most pleased that my M.S. Degree in Environmental Sciences was granted distinction. Primarily, as a result of doing quite well on the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), I was accepted to the Ph.D. program in one of India's most prestigious institutes of technology. Unfortunately, however, as a result of family problems, I was not able to leave my hometown at that time. So, I entered and completed the Ph.D. Program at XXXX University in my hometown, where I was given a full scholarship.

Most of what I have done here in America has been to organize Indian classical dance programs and cultural festivals. This has served me well as I have constantly been developing my communication and organizational skills as a leader. Immediately following completion of my Ph.D., I married, came to the USA, and began working as a manager for XXXX Corp., a physicians group, where I am still employed. My responsibilities have included managing physicians' schedules and marketing their medical services. We also developed a clinical research organization in that I have helped the market, negotiating financial budgets with drug companies, managing the budget, recruiting employees, and collaborating with ongoing research investigations. I am also a study coordinator for one of the studies. Most recently, I have been moving into the area of nursing home management and will soon qualify for a nursing home administrator license.

Attaining an MBA would help to provide me with the tools that I need to realize my long-term goal of someday returning to India and helping my family's businesses to grow and prosper as a result of better organizational management. I also dream of networking and lobbying on behalf of India's most poor since defending the poor is central to my social vision of the future. Most particularly, I look forward to helping poor Indian woman establish small businesses to sustain themselves.
