Sample Personal Statement for the MSc Degree in Finance, UK, Syrian in UAE

I hope to earn the MSC in Finance at XXXX University so as to have the fullest of opportunities in the banking industry and, in particular, the fields of asset management and corporate finance. Your MSC in Finance Program at XXXX University, in particular, is my first choice for graduate study because of the vast resources of your university and the surrounding area - providing valuable connections and sources of inspiration. I especially appreciate the international flavor and sophistication of your program at Manchester and would be honored to become a part of your academic community.

The internship that I recently completed in the banking industry, has helped me to appreciate and savor increasingly complex issues in finance on a global scale and I could not be more excited about giving all of my energy to this area of inquiry and advancement in global commerce. I see the MSC in Finance at Manchester as the ultimate preparation for a distinguished career spanning many decades to come in banking/asset management.

My average cumulative GPA is 3.3 in my major and rising, and I have also done well in my other course. It is in Finance, however, we are feel that I have the most to contribute and that I have potential for excellence work in this area as shown by already completing Fundamentals of Corporate Finance (A-), International Finance, Essentials of Investments (B+), Bank Management(A-), Analysis of Financial Statement (B+). Currently, I am taking Advanced Corporate Finance, Real Estate Investing and Asset Valuation and will be studying towards my certification as a financial analyst as soon as I graduate. A Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters certified user, nothing brings me greater joy than the mastery of financial software.

A young Syrian man with big dreams, I was born and raised in the UAE; my father has been working here for the past 25 years and is a partner and CEO of a major corporation based in Dubai - a leading property developer. Our family owns property in Dubai as well as St. Kitts and Nevis where we are nationalized. My central professional goal is to become the most successful real estate finance professional possible, trained in the West, based in Dubai. The last time that I visited Syria was in 2010, well before the civil war broke out. At that time, we still owned valuable real estate properties in Syria – most if not all of which have been destroyed. At some point in time when things are calm in Syria and rebuilding is underway, I want to be involved in helping to finance reconstruction, driven most of all by a sense of patriotic and humanitarian calling to the land of my family.

Now, I want to live and learn in London, taking full advantage of the vast international resources of the city in addition to the university. Still 22, my father calls me a young idealist when I talk to him about my dream of helping to rebuild Syria to something like its former glory. Nevertheless, I want to do what I can to help as a finance professional, rebuilding Syria at some point with smart green buildings with sustainable design and architecture.

We in Dubai could not be more excited about having been chosen as the host for EXPO 2020 as this will be an especially valuable opportunity to gain unique experience in design and development on an international level. I hold two Certificates in areas closely related to Finance and I am currently pursuing a third. I completed a market/retail analysis of 3 different malls in the City of Dubai mall complex. This included the world’s biggest mall, The Dubai Mall, and I won the Exceeding Expectations in Critical Thinking Award for this project. As part of the Global Leader Experience Project through Common Purpose, a leadership training program, we visited more than 12 profit and non-profit organizations in Dubai. I will be part of the American University of Sharjah Delegation Team to the Harvard National Model United Nations (HNMUN2017) to be held in February 2017.

I thank you for considering my application to XXXX University.
