Motivation Letter for Master application

I was looking a couple of weeks ago for a model of motivation letter , in order to apply for a master programmer in Sweden.I didn't have to much luck, and that is why i have decided to post here a sample of motivation letter, the one which i personally used . Motivation letter Chalmers University, Master Degree Programme in International Project Management Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing to express my interest in applying for a Master's Degree Programme in ******* starting in autumn 2009. I believe my educational background would enable me to make a strong contribution at the University. I mention that I have graduated in year 2008 *************, from Business Information Technology programme and got a bachelor degree in Business Administration. My academic performance has been always on top of class. I have been an active member of the IT League Academy for the North Region of Finland where I have been involved in the development of several software projects. Moreover I can say that I would like to continue my studies in order to gain knowledge and experiences by academic research and I believe a Master Degree Programme in Interactive Systems Engineering would offer me the possibility of receiving the complete picture of all aspects of this field. The reason for choosing this specific Master Programme comes from the fact that in the near future I would like to get to know more things regarding for example Artificial Intelligence studies. I already got some ideas in my head, but unfortunately until now I did not have the right knowledge and the right tools for putting them in practice and that is why I know that this Master Programme would be an excellent starting point for me. Also if I will get selected for this programme I will have the opportunity to learn from the best and the fact that I will study in an international environment will give me the privilege to create new relationships with people from different cultures. I am also aware of the kind of dedication and perseverance I will need to have for achieving the best results in the field and I believe my background will qualify me for such a Master Programme. Finally I can say that I look forward to join this Master Degree Programme in ********* in order to prove my abilities and gain new skills and I will be patiently waiting for a positive reply.

MOTIVATION STATEMENT Since I was in Senior High School, I have believed that mathematics is an important factor in a life. All human activities in several fields such as information technology, economics, physics, social and others will run well if they are cited in a good mathematics framework. This circumstance stimulated me to attend faculty of mathematics and natural science. I choose statistics as my specialization even though at this time, there werent many people know about statistics and few students choose statistics as their specialization. I saw in several developed countries such as The Netherlands and Belgium, the mathematics degree-holders not only have many opportunities but also were cited as important scholar in their societies. As a student at XXXX Department faculty of XXX of XXX University, I had numerous opportunities to do many activities. From XXX to XXX I had chances to become a lecturer assistant in mathematics and statistics laboratory. My resposibilities are taught and supervised students in the following subjects; Basic Programming, Computational Statistics, Statistical Methods and XXX. Besides studying, I was active in the student senate and became the head of research and development division. In XXX I, in a team, became the third winner of Indonesian student research competition. Overall I am pleased with my academic record and I believe that it has prepared me very well for graduate school. Presently, I work as a XXX for XXX. My responsibilities are teaching, conducting research individually or in a team and etc (mention your responsibilities) Working as a statistics lecturer needs deep knowledge of fundamental mathematics and experiences in advanced research of applied statistics. Even though my undergraduate programme has given me a strong background in the fundamentals of various mathematics especially statistics, this is not enough for me to be a professional lecturer. I have to continue my study to enrich my skills and broaden my knowledge. Currently, our institution which one of the functions is to XXXX to the government of Indonesia, has formulated its Long Term Plan known as the XXX PLAN, which directed toward the establishment of the Integrated National XXX System. This plan is including the development of statistics in various fields such as economy, demography, agriculture, and health. It leads the need of statistician who expert in those fields. Today, there is no Master of Science in XXX in our institution. These circumstances persuade me to apply Master of Science in XXX under XXX Scholarship programme. Master of Science in XXX is needed in Indonesia because of the following reasons: 1. It will improve education in XXX and Indonesia in general, and strenghten the establishment of the Integrated National System 2. I will fill the masters of XXX scarcity and strengthen the sustainable development of Indonesia. Considering all factors above. I believe that the chosen study will benefit Indonesia in general

I consider myself to be a good candidate for XXX Scholarship because I am young, energetic, hardworking, visionary, and motivated person who believes that I can do something for the benefit of my country to whom I have been working. I did my best with all maximum efforts I could give for my institution. But this is not enough. Frankly, I am not satisfied yet with what I did. I believe that I can do much better if I am trained and developed through a master of science in Belgium. MOTIVATION LETTER
During the past four years, I studied industrial engineering (with specialization in?) electronics at Ostend. The emphasis of my studies was understanding the fundamental electronic principles that govern modern day electronics. But I also learned about other diverse topics such as safety, economics, and industrial management. I found the last topic, industrial management, to be very interesting and exciting, because one of my career aspirations is to participate in the senior management of an industrial company. To further my career aspiriations of becoming part of a senior management team, I want to obtain a Master's Degree in Industrial Management. Having this knowledge will allow me to better understand management principles. With all the uncertainty and changes in with world, political, economic, and technological, I believe that management must have a solid understanding, supported by a strong academic foundation, of how to guide companies through these challenging times. No education is complete without experience. Armed with a solid understanding of academic principles, I can begin my career where I will add to my experience. Because I will be well versed in the theory, I will be able to adapt and modify the theoretical constructs as required in order to meet my company's needs. I fully recognize that our political, economic, and technological environments are constantly changing, and thus management needs to be able to adapt quickly and accurately to the new conditions if the company is to survive, let alone prosper. I believe obtaining a Master's Degree will provide the necessary background for me to be to anticipate and react to ever-changing environments. I look forward to launching my new career. Should you have any questions, please contact me at.... Sincerely,


Possessing considerable theoretical background in economics and business administration and 3 years of work experience, I am more than interested in expanding my academic and professional horizons by applying for the Master of Science in Financial Economics degree at AAAA. I see this degree as an opportunity to bridge my current portfolio of skills and knowledge with my ambitious future career plans. Already in my high school I had a childish dream to be a manager in The Finance World. Eventually, an abstract vision started taking shape. Honourable mention inI nternational Physics Olympiads raised confidence in my analytical skills and led to decision to pursue a degree in economics. During the demanding studies at BBBB Is aw my interest and energy strongly shifting towards the subjects having financial aspects in them. I started applying just acquired theoretical knowledge in real life situations trading stocks, bonds, funds and currencies which ultimately resulted in bachelor thesis on the topic Testing the efficiency of Neural Networks optimization: application to Foreign Exchange. As for the manager side of the dream, besides my academic program I have also served as a catalyst for business development initiatives and as a coordinator of goal-driven teams. For example, I have provided outstanding leadership and teamwork performance for CCC Ltd, resulting in a fivefold increase in sales during 2.5 years;T he Guide to Life in BBBB proved to be a 100 page thick example of my coordination and skills and the initiative is still continued by new generations at the university. Combination of strong financial knowledge and business leadership skills can lead to extraordinary results, especially in todays markets of the , where corporate finance is still in an early stage and opportunities for the qualified managers are vast. I feel like having acquired significant business leadership skills, however studies in AAAA would provide me with the lacking knowledge in finance and help me to pursue my career aims in corporate finance, where my education, my previous experience and most importantly my personal interests will combine. How do I know that education in AAAA is exactly what I need? Graduates of your institution, Xperson and Yperson (they both also finished the same bachelor degree as me), gave me more insight about the subjects taughtand quality of the studies. Having also seen how their careers progressed afterwards, I feel confident that Master of Science in Financial Economics is the right choice for me. As nothing comes for free, in return for the perfect education I will get in BBBBI can assure to provide you with the top academic performance, remarkable analytical talents, natural interpersonal and communication abilities and irrepressible energy in everything I do. Yours sincerely, Dalius

Economics is the social science that analyzes the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. The term economics comes from the Ancient Greek (oikonomia, "management of a household, administration") from (oikos, "house") + (nomos, "custom" or "law"), hence "rules of the house(hold)".[1] Political economy was the earlier name for the subject, but economists in the latter 19th century suggested 'economics' as a shorter term for 'economic science' that also avoided a narrow political-interest connotation and as similar in form to 'mathematics', 'ethics', and so forth.[2] A focus of the subject is how economic agents behave or interact and how economies work. Consistent with this, a primary textbook distinction is between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics examines the behavior of basic elements in the economy, including individual agents (such as households and firms or as buyers and sellers) and markets, and their interactions. Macroeconomics analyzes the entire economy and issues affecting it, including unemployment, inflation, economic growth, and monetary and fiscal policy. Other broad distinctions include those between positive economics (describing "what is") and normative economics (advocating "what ought to be"); between economic theory and applied economics; between rational and behavioral economics; and between mainstream economics (more "orthodox" dealing with the "rationality-individualism-equilibrium nexus") and heterodox economics (more "radical" dealing with the "institutions-history-social structure nexus").[3] Economic analysis may be applied throughout society, as in business, finance, health care, and government, but also to such diverse subjects as crime,[4] education,[5] the family, law, politics, religion,[6] social institutions, war,[7] and science.[8] At the turn of the 21st century, the expanding domain of economics in the social sciences has been described as economic imperialism.[9] Economics is the science of decision making. In economics, students learn how to identify the costs, benefits and consequences of a decision. Economists in private industry work largely for marketing research firms, management consulting firms, banks, investment firms, and insurance companies. A degree in economics is also highly desirable for students who plan to attend graduate school or law school. The College of Business and Economics has an excellent record of placing economics students in both. The entire discipline of economicsand all economic activityarises from a scarcity of goods and services in comparison to human wants and needs. If there is not enough of something for everyone who wants or needs it, society faces a serious problem: How do we decide who gets that something and who goes without it? Throughout history there have always been people who obtained what they wanted or needed by force. The barbarians who sacked Rome practiced this form of economic activity, and in modern times it is practiced by armed robbers. But a society worthy of the name requires an orderly system of producing and distributing the necessities and luxuries of life. Such a system is essential to a stable society. Economics is the study of systems of production and distribution which are called economiesand of their fundamentals, dynamics, and results.
