International Business Management, Finance, Accounting and Marketing are the subjects I wish to pursue. It is my goal to become a business analyst manager working internationally with Finance. My family business inspired me to do the course as I have had the opportunity to work within many business areas such as, accounting and finance. Though this work experience I have learnt how to deal with balance sheet and profit and loss account. Since I started working in the business, it has become clearer how business world is operating, changing and adapting to create more paths to success is a feature that I can apply. Through this work experience I want to contribute more into businesses and make it more successful.
I would like to study International Business to build up my skills in research and presentation as well as develop my knowledge into the worldwide business environment. When I study International Business I can secure a role in Marketing, Consultancy, Human resource Services or start my own business. International focus is really vital in the business environment nowadays and I have chosen this course because I am able to speak 3 languages fluently English, Bengali, and Hindi and I want to learn Arabic language. The knowledge I have in these languages has made me eager in worldwide business. At university, I would like to study this course as I have to gain more knowledge and information in International business and work in various nations.
My life changed when I was 16 years old and came to the United Kingdom with my family. I enrolled at Barnfield College and was doing functional English Entry Level 3 and then next year I did functional English Level 2. During this time, I have met so many people from different cultures and different languages. This helped me to develop my socializing skills because of such a diverse culture. I learned how to live in new foreign environment where I had to rely on myself and cope with difficulties all alone. I came from school where I was with my same classmate for many years to a new and multi -cultural college.
Currently, I am doing Business Studies Level 3 year extended diploma where my course cover various subjects such as business management, accounting, marketing, human resource management, business, economic environment ,developing teams in business which is giving me different knowledge in many subjects which I can apply in university to get higher grade. I did not attend to high school in the UK but I attended in back home in Bangladesh where I have 9 GCSE's including maths and English. My academic skills are helping me to improve my personal characters such as meet assignment deadline, be on time in class , work group work etc.
I used to work in a restaurant as a manager responsible for making sure the business run effectively and smoothly. My duties were involved helping customers either as a cashier or helping customers at the customer service desk with their various problems and complaints which is helping me to improve my communication skills and problem solving skills. This formal position helped me vital life skills such as leadership, communication, organisation, planning and working with others.
My hobbies and interests are to spending my spare time with my family and friends. I like to spend my free time reading books and newspapers gaining knowledge and interested in learning new things. I also like working for social on my free time such as a charity, voluntary.
After I have completed my international business from university with first grade, I will look for a job as Head of International Finance in Retail businesses. I am very focused and determined about my course. I am confident that I will be studying the course successfully and hope my application will be approved.

International Business Personal Statement
I believe the International Business course is tailor-made for me as the course allows me to combine my passion for business with my hobby of travelling. I have aspirations of running my own business and I am looking forward to putting in the necessary work to achieve this. I feel that being on this course would be the perfect foundation. My father is a huge inspiration to me. He is a managing director of a multinational company and his work led me to opt to spend two weeks shadowing him acting as a personal assistant. This involved attending meetings throughout the UK linking up with clients and business personnel. I believe this gave me a better understanding of a working business environment and I could understand how theory learnt in study is applied to the real world.
For my AS Business I really enjoyed completing the Marketing coursework. The theory of Marketing thoroughly interests me and specifically the international aspect of Marketing, such as how firms cater for the needs of customers in different contexts and countries. I am also attracted to the study of how ideas develop into businesses, and therefore look forward to developing my knowledge of Entrepreneurship and Enterprise.
My studies have supported my interest in business. Art & Design has taught me to be inventive, patient and also disciplined when working towards deadlines. ICT has allowed me to develop my knowledge and skills in computing and has been generally beneficial. It has raised my awareness of the fast paced developing nature of technology in business. Having completed an AS in Economics, I feel it complemented business well. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the microeconomic theories and how it related to individual businesses. In July 2006 I began a part time job working in Tesco Superstores, which has been a major learning curve for me as I have become more self-disciplined, balancing my academic studies with work activities. This job has given me a sense of commitment and responsibility, on which I thrive. I am often left alone to work independently in addition to training new members of staff. Eager to be self employed and owning my own business in the future, I am planning on initiating my own clothing business as a small project whilst I complete A-Levels and my degree.
As a Sixth-Former I like to get "involved" contributing to various activities, from hosting at the official opening of our new Post 16 Centre (by the former Education Secretary, Estelle Morris) to being a member of the Sixth Form Council. I have assisted in organizing charitable events eg 24 Hour Stay Awakes. In addition, the Enrichment Programme has made me more aware of issues outside of my A Level curriculum. Sexual Health, Fair-Trade, Human Rights and a conference on Young People and Ethical Issues have all helped me learn more about other people and moral questions. I have also gained a better understanding of other cultures which is a perfect platform for the International Business course.
I enjoy debate, making presentations and take pleasure in all sports as I enjoy the competition, teamwork and activity. I am vice captain of my Sixth-Form football team. Recently I have been taking part in new sports, such as Mountain Biking and the French discipline of Parkour (free-running). These have helped me learn new skills and make me want to share the learning experience with others. I am looking forward to continuing these at university.
I genuinely believe I am a friendly, approachable, caring person as well as a motivated, hard-working and enthusiastic student. I thrive on challenge and relish opportunity. I am ready to take on a demanding degree course and all that comes with university life.
