"I graduated from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) with a degree in International Management in the Fuel and Energy Sector and now I submit documents for the Master's program MSc (here you can insert the full name of your specialty, faculty and university, arrival). I want to get in the MSc program in-depth knowledge and skills in the energy business to start work in an international company in the fuel and energy sector. Energy is one of the main production industries in Russia, and therefore I chose as a bachelor's degree in Management in the Energy Sector.
When I received my bachelor's degree from MGIMO, I realized that I want to build my successful career in the international sector, trying to change the planet for the better. I am sure that the development of alternative energy sources will be able to solve key problems of world energy, ecology and nature management - for example, to exceed the limited resources, minimize damage to our planet, and reduce the cost of world production. In the Western world, the issue of alternative energy sources is given much more attention than in Russia, unfortunately, so I expect to make a tangible contribution to the development of this sector in my home country.
To achieve my goal, I plan to build a career in companies-world leaders in the energy sector: Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil or British Petroleum. The most suitable option seems to me to start working in a team of internal consultants: so I can acquire a comprehensive experience, learn all the features and features of this business. My interest in this topic and dedication will help me in a few years to lead this team and stimulate the development of alternative energy sources in Russia. In the future, I plan to work on the position of Managing Director of a representative office of one of these companies in Russia, or to set up my own company developing services in the sphere of alternative energy production.
I am sure that the MSc program will strengthen and deepen, update the knowledge that I already have, plus will give me unique, special skills for conducting international business and cooperation. I want to acquire the foundations of knowledge of the alternative energy sector in the countries of the Western world, since I consider the economy of the West to be more developed than the Russian one. The main amount of necessary knowledge I plan to get on the directions "Energy Markets" and "Economics and Trade in the Fuel and Energy Sphere", as well as in the financial area (since this will help me better understand the complex, complex processes of the international energy business).
I believe that the MSc Energy, Trade and Finance program will serve as an effective link between my bachelor's degree and future successful career in the international community, in the energy sector. I am confident in my abilities and I realize the complexity of the chosen course - I am ready to do everything possible to become a successful and promising student, a member of the student community of my university, a qualified specialist. I plan to pass the IELTS exam shortly before the admission (here you can specify the date of the scheduled testing). "
