Statement of Purpose (PRAAADHA)
I would like to introduce myself as Applicant’s name, a Nepalese citizen with a valid passport numbered XXXXXXX. I am a son of Mr. Father’s name and Mrs. Mother’s name was born on D.O.B. Although I was born, raised and educated in Kathmandu, Nepal I am a permanent resident of Location name. I believe,” Without passion you don’t have energy, and without energy you have nothing” as to gain everything leading my passion to be successful and top Business man has led me to purchase my higher education in business stream. I am applying for Bachelor in Business (Management) in college name for Intake
Academic Qualification and work experience
With the constant support, motivation and care from my parents and seniors. I became able to pass my School Leaving Certificate (SLC) exam in year A.D. with GPA XX from School name located in Location name l. Regularly, I passed Higher Secondary in year A.D . Securing XX GPA from college name, Location name . I have no backlogs in my entire study history.
After my high secondary level examinations, I started a job in company name as an Marketing Executive in Year A.D. Working at company name led me to acquire basic knowledge about Nepalese business environment, where most of the businesses are traditionally run and entrepreneurs lack modern tools, techniques, training and education. These could be the factors acting as hindrances along with many other variables for under development of Nepal and the Nepalese society. After working in company name , I decided to pursue further education in business from abroad. Although there are established educational institutions in Nepal and some are also in existence for more than 50 years, the effort to deliver quality education has always remained dissatisfied. Further I wanted to learn about recent business trends, transformations and get exposed to international market scenario. I wish to learn about business functionality modules in developed countries and bring in new techniques and technology to strengthen businesses in Nepal.
Australia’s excellent education system will certainly make my graduate studies the next professional stepping stone in my career, programs provided at college name will definitely help me with a practical teaching/ research experience in a cross-cultural working environment as well as a great responsibility and obligation for hard work. Since I have realized that being Businessman is my dream, my aim and my interest, I can do best in this area with determined focus and a hundred percent devotion.
Always guided by my passion to do something good for my family and I have always wanted to make the best of myself. If Australia provides me with an opportunity to study, there I can feel that I can finally make my parents and my country proud. With the aim that I can bring the change in this field I want to complete my further studies abroad so that I can learn the necessary skills for fulfilling my dream of bringing advance change in business system. As Nepal’s education system lacks in teaching us a real-life problem and how to solve them. So, my main purpose for choosing college name is because the curriculum of the college can make me stronger and clearer on the knowledge that I have picked up as a graduate in bachelor of business. Grades, class rank or even standardized tests can never accurately measure the inner carves of achieving one’s dream. It is just an ongoing process of acquiring knowledge both in the formal classroom and though the uneven experiences provided by day to day life. It is the potential that it holds to face any circumstances. Education if limited to only certificates is totally futile until it is implemented for the welfare of the humanity. For me education must be able to uplift the status of an individual along with the renewal of humanity and basic standard of humanity.
Why Not Nepal?
There are many renowned colleges and universities in Nepal such as Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University, Pokhara University etc but Nepalese degree is not globally competitive. Also, it takes 4 years to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Nepal. Also, colleges have limited seats and only yearly intake. Most of the colleges need entrance exams also for admission and if a student not selected has to wait for another year for the admission. Also, I already studied for a long time in Nepal and also worked and now I want to experience a different education from abroad where I will not only get the degree but also get a chance to meet students from different countries, can make friends globally, can exchange different cultures while staying with them together. I will also explore the international environment, develop my personality, improve my English proficiency level and know the time management skills. Another reason for not studying in Nepal is If I have the international degree, I can get priority for the job in Nepal and also get a high salary compared to local degree holders. Nepal lacks all the infrastructures and management skills in each and every aspect of the educational field. The problem plaguing the education system of Nepal are multidimensional like participation, explosion lack of resources, non-participation of private sector, scarcity of qualified manpower, insufficient education management system, wastes of resources, poor implementation of policies and program, lack of skilled teachers, careless checking and ignorance of results and so on. Being a conscientious student, I decided to pursue my further education in foreign country through which I can get a globally recognized degree over the world as my home country cannot provide. It’s hard to believe but it’s the truth of Nepalese education system. The world is developing at a quick pace with globalization. However, Nepal is a developing country and it does not have a solid base for reasonable and organized education for the recent international job market. There certainly has been a steady change in the education framework of Nepal but still it cannot meet the international standard. The educational foundations of Nepal in larger amounts are ordinary and not on parallel level with worldwide education providers. In researching international education, I found them ahead of our education system in many aspects. Thus, I have chosen to study abroad.
Australia is known as the best destination for International students which has 5 out of 30 best cities for students in the world. It has practical based classes and the courses are updated. Australia is a very friendly country for international students. It has policies such as Tuition Protection Service (TPS) which protects fees if my college is not able to provide me with my course. Australia has top 7 universities in 100 top universities among all these finding a university which has affordable tuition fees and high quality teaching skills was a tough job. The environment is safe and friendly for international students. Students can find world class facilities quality education and best teaching methods and globally recognized degrees. The Quality education will guide me to better career opportunities and provide an international degree. The rights of international students are protected by the Australian government and they secure the investment of international students. As well as Australia has ESOS act through this act international students in Australia are protected by educational Service for overseas students. Every Australian institution that meets these requirements is listed on the publicly available Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). This act also protects the rights of international students while studying in Australia. Australian crime rate is very low and the political condition is stable and a safe nation for students. One of the most hallmark reasons that made me choose Australia is that the Australian government is committed to provide the post study work (PSW) Visa has given access for international students to work in Australia for two years once they finish their education for work experience. Apart from it, these countries did not have any frameworks build for students like the ones in Australia which safeguarded student’s right to education, fees along with a sound safe learning environment.
Melbourne is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Victoria, and the second most populous city in Australia and Oceania. Its name refers to an urban agglomeration of 9,993 km2 comprising a metropolitan area with 31 municipalities, and is also the common name for its city Centre. The city occupies much of the coastline of Port Phillip Bay and spreads into the hinterlands towards the Dandenong and Macedon ranges, Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. It has a population of 5 million (19% of the population of Australia). I decided to choose Melbourne over other Australian cities, as Australia’s most prominent and well known schools are based in Melbourne. Of the top twenty high schools in Australia according to the Better Education ranking, six are in Melbourne. There has also been a rapid increase in the number of International students studying in the city. Furthermore, Melbourne was ranked the world’s fourth top University City in 2008 after London, Boston and Tokyo in a poll commissioned by the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Melbourne is the home of seven public universities: The University of Melbourne, Monash University, Swinburne University of Technology, Deakin University, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University), La Trobe University, and Victoria University. It means it is an educational city.
Why not other English speaking countries?
In order to pursue my further education in early childhood development and care, I searched for this course in countries like USA, UK and Australia. While going in different educational consultancies and my personal internet research I got information about different test requirements to study in the USA such as Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), American College Test (ACT) and TOEFL’s. I will compulsorily have to take the SAT examination and go through different screening phases. This is both a time consuming and costly process. Also, it takes 4 years to complete a Bachelor’s degree. Whereas, in the UK there had been frequent changes in policies relating to foreign students, moreover, many universities and colleges had been blacklisted in the past few years. There is no Tuition Protection System in the UK like Australia. Also, both of these countries have experienced an increase in the number of criminal activities in the past year and the situation still remains unchanged. Moreover, Australian colleges and universities are affordable in comparison to other countries like the USA, UK. The climate condition of Canada is cold. The temperature can climb down to -30 degrees Celsius in winter which is very difficult to adapt for a person like me who has grown up in a temperate climatic zone. Whereas, the climate of Australia is somewhat similar to that of Nepal which will be easy to adapt. Also, the living expense of Canada is higher than that of Australia.
Why College name?
College name is one of Australia’s leading independent institutions. college name is part of EduCo International Group, a global network of quality education providers. college name has campuses across location name, altogether offering a wide range of courses in the English, Vocational and Higher Education sectors. All campuses are conveniently located in the Central Business Districts (CBD) of each city. In addition, campuses are equipped with modern style classrooms, library resources, student recreational areas including kitchen facilities and computer labs with free access to the internet. college name regularly organizes extra activities outside of class, which give students the opportunity to discover some of Australia’s most beautiful places.
College name is continuously developing the quality of academic curriculum, teaching methods and student services in order to support students to achieve their best and enhance their study and life experience in Australia. Some of these recent developments include guest lectures by industry professionals, visits to local companies to gain industry based learning. Teachers and trainers that are involved in the college name higher education have years of experience within the relevant industry. Students at college name come from a range of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds providing a multicultural learning environment for all. At any one time there are students from over 40 different countries studying across the English language, vocational and higher education courses. Also, it offers small class sizes. I also researched some other providers in Australia for the same course such as Deakin University, Southern Cross University, Kaplan Business School, Federation University, La Trobe University, Kent Institute etc and compared the tuition fees, class size etc. Most of the above mentioned Universities have above AUD amount per year tuition fees for the same course and same accreditation. Also, most of the Universities have large class sizes where I can study in small class size in College with just 25 students in a class. I also, compared the course structure and specialization options, locations, student care support provided by the college. Kaplan Business School also has the same course but the fee is high and they have specific IELTS requirements of each band. So, comparing all these factors I decide to study in college name.
Why Bachelor in Business (Management)?
A Bachelor in Business (Management) is a degree that includes both general business courses and advanced classes in specific areas of concentration. Bachelor in Business (Management) degree is normally designed to give students a general understanding of all the function areas of a business and how they are all interconnected. In a Bachelor in Business (Management), students learn the foundations of accounting, finance, economics, marketing, operations, human resources and other major areas of business before specializing in a concrete area. From my research I came to know The Bachelor of Business (Management) aims to produce graduates with the skills and knowledge to work in middle management roles in a variety of public and private industries. Managers play a vital role in all organizations as they are responsible for organization growth and development. This program will develop business and leadership skills and give students the ability to manage people and organizations successfully. The degree ensures that students have the opportunity to develop essential business skills and knowledge including finance and marketing principles, business law and sound well-developed management skills. I need to study total 24 units under this course and some the subjects are Business Technology and Knowledge Management, Business Statistics, Economic Principles, Introduction to Management, Professional Communications, Market Principles, Integrated Marketing Communication, New Product Development, Human Resource Development, Organizational Structure and Design, Financial Accounting Practice, Market Planning and Strategy, Services Marketing and Management, Business, Society and Ethic, International Marketing Management etc. After completing my bachelor’s degree, I will gain the knowledge of how to research information using quantitative skills, and then develop ideas based on that information to solve problems. I will also involve people — customers and employees — so communication and interpersonal skills are vitally important as well Hence, I will also develop knowledge and skills in management, leadership and advocacy which will extend the range of employment opportunities after graduation.
My parents will be sponsoring for the entirety of my education. I belong to a middle-class family where love, care, respect and understanding have a lot of importance. My parents are my only family and they have always been the source of motivation to me which results in what I am today. My parents will be sponsoring for the entirety of my education. My father has an annual income of NRS amount equivalents to AUD amount who works as an assistant manager of company name. My mother works as an assistant manager in company name whose annual income is NRS amount equivalent AUD amount, and annual income from land lease is NRS amount equivalent to AUD amount, so the total the annual income of my family is NRS amount which is equivalent to AUD amount. To sponsor my academic career in Australia my mother took a bank issued student loan of NRS amount which is equivalent to AUD amount from Bank name.
My Future Career Plans
The course equips us with the understanding of basic principles of business and management which is required to perform different management roles in corporate sector. The degree gained from the College name will be a foundation for me to work in management sector in my home country. Thus, after completion of my bachelor’s degree, I’ll return to my home nation and will be involving in management sector as the graduates in management are highly demanded in Nepal.
In Nepal, there are few professionals who are having a successful career in this field and I am hoping to be added in that list by utilizing my academic skills and experience earned from Australia. Experienced and internationally graduated management experts are always in high demand in our country. Different government and private sector like Nepal bank ltd, Banijya bank, Investment bank, Surya Nepal, Maruti cements etc. are always in search of qualified management officers and provide salary of about NPR. Amount – NPR. Amount Monthly. Moreover, we can also start own business and be an entrepreneur. We can work under different designations like administrator, departmental head, corporate manager, human resource adviser and so on. With an earning of attractive salary in Nepal, I can easily be able to recoup the expense required during my study in Australia.
My first plan after return to Nepal is to start my experience with small business company as a manager where I can get salary of around NPR. Amount. Then, after several years of experience, I have a plan to work in a big and leading companies in Nepal like Chaudhary Group, Khetan Group, Sharada Group, Vaidya’s organizations and many other. Also, I have a plan to work as an entrepreneur and start own business in Nepal. We can also see the demand of management graduates in different daily newspaper like Kantipur daily, Himalayan times and websites like www.merojob.com, www.jobsnepal.com and many other. The recent demand of management graduates is also available in the links like https://merojob.com/finance-admin-officer-33/, https://merojob.com/manage-officer-315/, https://www.jobsnepal.com/job/assistant-manager/99414. These data shows that the graduates in management should not have to remain unemployed in Nepal after return from Australia.
Incentive to return back home
After completion of my studies, I will surely return back to my country and I will start searching for jobs from aforementioned job portals. I will gain a few years’ experience working in different related organizations and will work on returning investment made by my parents for my studies in Australia. Gaining 2-3 years’ experience I will start my own new start up business in Nepal. Also, I have certain responsibilities towards my parents so to take care of my parents I will return back to my home country. Since, this course is not available in our country I also want to voice my opinion about this concept in Nepal and campaign to appeal to the government for the addition of this course in our universities.
Return on investment
The investment done by my parents to brighten my future will never go in vain. I will slowly accomplish my dream and make sure to pay them with my success. I will receive a salary of NPR. Amount – NPR. Amount whereas; it will increase accordingly to my work experience. I will be able to recover my educational investment. After a few years of work experience in the private sector and INGOs I will be able to cover my educational investment in Australia. I will start my own Business with the help of my seniors and friends. That Organization of my own will have a turnover of NPR. Amount – NPR. Amount this will more than enough to sustain a comfortable lifestyle.
