Considering the scientific and technological challenges facing the social and economic value of our modern societies and the competitiveness of the business environments as well as the increase access to information technology, is what I find most exciting about Information Systems Management programme. I firmly believe in keeping an inquisitive and explorative attitude that leads to a continuous learning process. I have a keen appreciation for the importance of this discipline, the impact it has on our lives, societies, businesses, and what it takes to ensure that things are done in an efficient, orderly and organized manner.
As I plant my giant steps on the sands of time, impacting upon the lives of millions in my community, across borders, promoting social justice, good governance and empowering the future leaders with unparalleled courage, I aspire to make a social impact in raising leaders, shaping visions and positively influencing the society through technology. Look behind the wealth of nations and you find technology; look behind the poverty of nations and you find lack of technological knowledge. I have learnt a lot from the school of adversity. I am in a better to position to feel what many people are passing through. Therefore, I am passionate to positively change the society at large by helping people develop skills and resources to overcome poverty and pursue social justice. I hope to use the knowledge and skills acquired to create opportunities and enriching the lives of numerous people in my community. Armed with the needed skills and knowledge, I can connect with the working world. I have a strong belief that I am worthy. I can contribute. Then I can go and show the world that I can be a verb, not just a noun. I want to learn, lead and change the world. I am motivated to help in the social transformation of my community. I am deeply committed to community and to use my expertise in information technology to make a difference.
As the world gets smaller, I think of expanding my horizon and increasing opportunities. I want to feel confident in entering the global workforce with new ideas and new ways of understanding the world around me by engaging in the professional practice, locally and globally, contributing through the ethical, competent, and creative practice of information technologies.
I want to work and study with extraordinary people, experience new places, and make an impact on others through my work and my community. I have an excellent academic track record illustrating my achievements and my potential to use the skills acquired to make a difference in the society where I could help to contribute to its socioeconomic developments using the new skills and knowledge acquired in information technology. I want to give back to the society where I was nurtured. Just imagine the excitement and satisfaction of what I can do, where I can go, and the difference I can make with the information technologies behind me.
Given the financial support, I feel that pursue a Master degree in Information Systems Management in USA will be the most logical extension of my academic pursuits, a major step towards achieving my educational goals, gain the scientific expertise and explore the beauty in diversity of intercultural richness. Because the mind is a terrible thing to waste, no society can afford to let its exceptionally bright or talented children go without the training they need to develop their talents fully for the service of mankind. This programme will offer me a superior learning environment that will eventually prepare me to be a leader in my chosen profession with the empowerment to change my community and the entire nation.
