Economics and Finance Personal Statement
Adaptability, creative thinking and the application of technology are now intrinsic to managing finances. I have developed these principles and enjoyed the spectrum of college study that has taught me to approach problems from different political, economical and psychological perspectives. Successfully completing key skills ICT and studying computing and economics has enabled me to examine the criticality of technology in giving businesses a competitive edge by considering issues such as organisational objectives, people and legal implications rather than making decisions based solely on financial factors. Furthermore, studying psychology at advanced subsidary level has given me insight into the human influences on organisational behaviour
University has always appealed to me because of the wealth of experiences it has to offer as a student. My main ambition for the future is to become an Accountant Executive or a Financial Advisor. I am hoping university will provide me with an understanding of the business world as well as offering me a wide range of choices and connections after my course
I have had work placement in providing a service in a take away restaurant. In doing so, I was responsible for customer care and also responding to complaints, and learned new skills with team work, helping and managing process and this also enabled me to interact with different cultures and learning new communication skills in both Cantonese and mandarin
Throughout my schooling I have been closely involved in charity work
Being sponsored to speak French for a day proved to be one of my most innovative (and amusing!) methods of raising money. Attending a residential trip to Venice, Italy has further broadened my horizons, as I feel have gained great communicational skills and experiences of which I have never thought to encounter
When time allows, I find playing the keyboard and creative writing, such as poetry, a change from my studies. I enjoy using computers as a hobby and to broaden the skills I have gained from my computing course. My other pursuits include more physical activities such as attending the gym regularly and cycling
I am looking forward to the opportunity of studying at university, being more self-reliant and at present, I am putting most of my effort into achieving the best grades in my A Levels to allow me to reach the next target in my education. I understand that university life will be very challenging, but I am confident that it will give me the best chance to achieve my potential, and lead the way forward to a successful career.
