The world’s economy is increasing globally. As a result, demand continues to grow for individuals who understand the global context of business: from the logistics of international trade and cross-border investments to the cultural and ethical issues that are imbued in the practice of business around the world.I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting from the University of Calcutta and attained first class honours. After the completion of my bachelor’s degree, I was recruited at Santoshi Transport Pvt Ltd as an Assistant Accounts Officer where my responsibilities were to checking internal controls of accounts, vouching of books, processing of payment and expenditure and managing other office activities such as drafting notices, preparing tax-related documents, etc. These were incredibly valuable opportunities to learn accounting work practically. As a result, I gained considerable experience of Books of Accounts. In the final year of graduation, I completed an individual project on E-COMMERCE. In that project, I came to know that how business can be done at online platform across the world. Additionally, through questionnaires, I came to know that people wants digital business which are internationally connected. As a consequence, Electronic business for international trade created a kind of new market environment; the customs business process and therefore had a great change. I soon realized my interest in International business. It is against this atmosphere that I have realized the need to pursue further education in International Business at the Grenoble School of Management (GSM) in order to fulfil my career objectives.
My Short term Goals are- first, – to acquire degree of Master in International Business(MIB) from your school in the next two years while also mastering English and French language. Second – after completing MIB, I would like to work to take managerial experience in a company who have cross-boarders connections on entry-level managerial position such as an assistant manager or project manager or business analyst for the next five to seven years. In those years, I will equip myself with managerial experience and necessary skills. Furthermore, my long-run vision is to achieve a senior managerial position in a large multinational corporation. To achieve my long-term career goals, I need international practical exposure to all aspects of business disciplines, such as finance, marketing and most importantly, international strategy that will complement my experiences in building and leading a big and successful team.
I decided to pursue masters in international business to achieve the above goals in my life and to take management experience internationally. By studying international business, I will learn about world cultures and societies, and be challenged to approach issues from different perspectives. These skills are increasingly valuable to employers faced with the challenge of opening and integrating multiple markets and achieving cohesion and collegiality in increasingly diverse workforces.
