Business Personal Statement
My decision to apply for a degree in Business is due to my desire to aim for a career in the promotion of electronic music.
This initiated from a visit to London, where I had the opportunity to experience the deeply fascinating influences of the local club scene to the culture of our times. This experience made my involvement with that specific branch of the music industry a primary objective.
During the following years I succeeded in establishing a presence within a field I knew very little about, even at the expense of other activities.
In fact, I managed to occupy myself in an independent record store, where apart from being given a chance to be involved in the management of the business I was also given an opportunity to test my creative skills, by creating a web page to promote the company.
Furthermore, the economics and business courses I attended during my studies in the International Baccalaureate gave me the opportunity to utilise and put into perspective the knowledge I had previously acquired through personal experience.
This made me realise the effect that a university education would have upon me both as person and as future professional.
Hence, if I were given the opportunity to continue my studies along these lines I would be more than willing to devote myself to the hard work neccessary in order to qualify for a degree.
I am fully aware of the effort as well as the risks involved, still it is the advice of a friend that inspires me "do what your heart says - it will bring your greater riches".
