This way I laid the foundation stone for my future career.
My immediate future at university was admission to information management course. This step looks like a movement away from my plans. It is not the case! Information and management have become an integral part of any profession; even medical specialists are not excluded although they deal with their patients and are not involved in any other business. Therefore, the professionals dealing with business, accounts, finance and public are in real need of developing excellent skills in information and management. People, who have not received any formal education in a specific field, usually, can learn related skills through their daily experiences while being at work places. But strengthening of knowledge and enhancing understanding of any subject area demands living in an academic environment for quite some time.

Moreover, I could also find an opportunity to talk and discuss with some of the alumni of school (name of the school) who liked the idea of applying to this business school (name of the school) and were optimistic about my admission to the programme (name of prog).
Applying to a postgraduate degree course at your business school at the moment seems an appropriate decision. Based on my experience either at my academic institutions or at some professional organizations I reach to the conclusion that I must continue my studies in such a wonderful institution because I find myself to fulfil all the requirements of the course.
