Personal Statement I am a graduate of Mechanical Engineering but have found myself in the Logistics and Supply Chain Management

profession since graduation. I started a career in Supply Chain Management not really by choice but by virtue of the fact that most graduates of Nigerian tertiary institution today take up available job and not choice job due to mass unemployment. I have practiced SCM for about 5yrs now and have really developed a keen interest in rising to the top of the profession. I have chosen to study a Masters in Logistics & Supply Chain Management in the UK firstly, to enhance my career prospects. And since it has become a career line which I have chosen to tread, thus the need to seek for international professional knowledge in the field more so that the course is currently not taught in any Nigerian University. As per my medium term plan, I had like to become an upward mobile globally recognised Supply Chain Professional. In achieving this vision, studying Logistics & Supply Chain Management in a standard and recognised institution in the UK will almost take me close to this dream coupled with my cognate experience in the field. I have also decided to study Supply Chain Management in order to be able to develop an in-depth understanding of integrative managerial issues and challenges related to developing and implementing a firms supply chain. Then also considering the fact that Supply Chain Management is a newly emerging concept in the global work environment of which Nigeria is not an exception. Its fast gaining ground particularly in the manufacturing sector where the need for quality, customer - supplier satisfaction and cost saving are key metrics for winning out there. Supply Chain Management has numerous advantages and plays tremendous role in organizational competitiveness and profitability in the global market place. Sourcing for international knowledge in this kind of promising course will give me cutting edge advantage in terms of career and personal development. In conclusion, considering the current government reforms in Nigeria. Reform, which includes wooing private & foreign investors to establish in Nigeria. In the course of this and in the near future, there will likely be a good demand for the services of Supply Chain Management professionals and other professionals because for an organization that want to remain competitive and profitable in the market place, it must put in place a standard and professional supply chain strategy. If opportune to get employment in any of the existing or new firms after my program, it would be an opportunity to put into practice the learnings and knowledge that would be acquired during the course of study, which will in turn contribute to the development of the organization and Nigeria at large. Overall, my on the job experience in supply chain management over the 5years span in the area of order & inventory management, warehousing, distribution requirement planning, production & raw material requirement planning, Logistics and Supply planning. I would like to enrol for the Masters programme in Purchasing & Supply Chain Management at the Robert Gordon University in order to support my cognate experience with sound academic knowledge.
