I consider myself fortunate enough to have been born in such interesting times. For probably we are living in one of the greatest transitory phase’s mankind has ever gone through in every sphere of activity - Social, Political and Economic. I feel we are living in times, the dichotomy of which is stranger than any fiction writer could have concocted. One of the major changes has been on the economic front where knowledge has become the driving force of today’s world like never before, the capital and infrastructure intensive industries of yester years have been replaced by knowledge-based industries. Thus, empowering people in the true sense of the word by enabling them rise above what they were destined to do.
In the age of globalization, it is crucial to have a broad and refined international outlook. Canada boasts an excellent cultural atmosphere and highly developed commercial sector, as well as sophistication in the humanities and areas of scientific and technological advancement. For these reasons, I hope to acquire management knowledge in Canada and learn from reputable professors with outstanding research facilities. In such a setting, I will be constantly exposed to skills and ideas that will enable me to develop into a management professional with virtually unlimited potential.
Considering my curiosity and interests, I opted for Civil Engineering as my undergraduate program and I got admitted in one of the best Engineering Institutes of India-Manipal Institute of Technology. This program exposed me to various practical projects along with the technical of engineering fundamentals. I also learned about the challenges of managing and leading a team. During my final year, I completed a project on 'Design, Planning and Execution of Proposed Road and RCC Boundary Wall' which gave me an immense sense of accomplishment.
Having completed my Bachelors, the curiosity of understanding the management issues involved in the construction industry got the better of me. I went on to study Advanced Construction Management in National Institute of Construction Management and Research (NICMAR), India's finest Construction Management Post Graduate Program. During the two-year course NICMAR, I learned about different kinds of management procedures like Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain, Risk, Managerial Accounting, Marketing and Financial. For me, Supply Chain Management was the most interesting aspect of manufacturing and construction industry. To learn more about the same, I completed a 90 days summer Internship in the prestigious Indian multinational steel company 'Tata Steel' where I learned the essentials of the entire Supply Chain Management. My training in Customer Service Department of 'Tata Steel' was focussed on Functioning of central Hub, Comparison of Chennai and Faridabad Stockyard and Study of Green Initiative in Stock Yards and Warehouses. I have also received my “Six Sigma Green Belt' certification by KPMG, India.
With an overall experience of 6 years I have worked in diverse industries from infrastructure sector such as power & steel plant to precast manufacturing industry. For the past 3 years, I have been working in 'Katerra India Pvt Ltd' as an Associate manager in Supply Chain Management department. I have been recognised as ‘best employee’ for the last two consecutive year in my department. As a part of strategic sourcing, I am handling cement and RMC supply chain on a pan India level. Apart from that, I have been a part of many prestigious projects executed by my team. I was a part of the acclaimed 'Indira Gandhi canteen project' in which I was responsible for the procurement and complete supply chain management of the project. Our team successfully completed all 162 canteens in record time of 4 months.
Besides academics, I have always been an active participant in several cultural fest, sports and literary events. I have also participated in 'Save Earth campaign' organised by LEO club, MIT Manipal. During my undergraduate program, I had served as Resource Manager at REVELS 09, a National Level cultural fest. Apart from cultural and literary activities, I have volunteered in Blood donation camps in KMC Hospital Manipal. To this day, I continue to donate blood at least every 6 months. This gave me a sense of utmost contentment and satisfaction as I was able to contribute to the society through some means.
A Global management from Royal Roads University will provide me a learning environment where I will be challenged and nurtured at the same time. With a highly Industry specific course curriculum I will get an opportunity to learn the key business skills from highly intellectual faculty. The specialization courses contained in the program such as ‘International business strategy’, ‘International Business Operations and Supply chain management’ will help me acquire knowledge and skills in developing and executing global strategy and along with the other core subjects will help me develop an ability to think constructively through systematic identification, evaluation, and creation of attractive business and corporate opportunities. As I aspire to work as a Supply chain expert, a master’s program in global management will help me face international challenges more successfully. The course will enhance my understanding of global economy and help develop strategic plans for international operations.
As Royal roads has a decent intake of international applicants, I would be in contact with diverse cultures and I would also develop an international network. This learning experience will play a major role later when I will work for a global employer operating across different countries.
I choose to study in Canada as it a very peaceful and safe country. Tuition fees and living expenses are affordable in Canada when compared to other countries with equally good education system. In addition, Canadian immigration policy is very friendly for students. Precisely why I choose to move to study in British Columbia is because the province has broad range of employment opportunities as it has been projected in coming years to have high level of job growth in Canada. As such post completion of the course I can find opportunities in international business.
The reason why I consider myself appropriate to take up the course lies in the fact that by working in a professional environment, I have developed the negotiation and analytical skills to deal with multiple vendors for both material and services specific to projects. I therefore bring to the team projects the innovative quotient and the problem-solving approach required for any project to succeed. As per my experience, it is imperative to discuss all the decisions with the team. I would also be instrumental in guiding the team about weighing the pros and cons of each solution and zeroing in on the most effective one. I can make my classmates understand the skills of managing both internal and external customer. My peer group can learn from my experience in the field of contract and commercial management, Risk management and Machinery and equipment sourcing. I feel sharing such valuable experiences with my classmates will bring out the best in all of us.
Combining all these experiences and my passion for management, I have applied to your prestigious University. A master's Degree at this critical juncture will provide me with a platform for leading discussions, publishing papers and attending scholarly conferences. Mentorship through your Master's program will help me hone my skills and provide further clarity and progress towards my goal of embarking upon a career in the field of management.
Finally, I take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to express myself and I look forward to my admission into the Master's program of your esteemed university.
