Compassion in the workplace

In life, I have learned that with age comes a greater appreciation for more extensive learning through the discovery of self and intellectual limitations. At the current stage of my career development, I feel that my current skills and knowledge could be further girded with a higher education befitting the skill sets required of a true business professional in the 21st century. As new and great challenges present themselves, so too do new opportunities in learning valuable real-life lessons arise.

As a former student active in sports, social and civic clubs, the values and morals that have been instilled in me in my previous scholastic and extra curricular endeavors have molded me into an individual whose goal is not merely to turn in a profit, but to observe sound morals and practices as well. My previous training in debate clubs and political science forums allow me to view competition with pre-emptive measures and a keen sense of gut feel that allows me to maneuver accordingly.The cutthroat realm that is contemporary business makes for a barbaric arena where competitors and even co-workers are at each other’s throats all the time. My previous work with charities and civic groups has brought me a level of compassion that I would like to impart upon those whose lives I will be touching base with on a daily basis.

Of course, all this would be for naught if I would not be bringing all my previous experiences to the table as a corporate professional. I believe that combining the past with a business graduate education in the present would lead to a very bright and promising future. I also believe that through the analysis of the inner workings of management, finance and economics, I would be arming myself for future needs and rounding out my business acumen as a whole. These personal experiences and my own passion to succeed are what I primarily need to become a triumphant businessman, but these are not enough to stay competitive in the future as I would have to know the technical aspects of business as well.

These are the reasons why I would like to enter into business school. Aside from learning all the abstract theories involved, I would also be working on the material aspects of business by working while taking the course. Once I have completed the course, I would like to take up a doctorate degree as it is my ultimate dream to become a professor of business in the future, guiding those who, like me, have a passion for the inner workings of business as well as the moral fiber and character to proceed within it in good faith.
