Hello Everyone, 

Below is the SOP i have written for FMS. Request you all to please review it and provide your valuable feedback.

Thanks in advance for the same.!!

Words : 144/150


It was during my engineering days that my interest in management was conceived where I managed extra-curricular with the academics. During this course, I held many positions of responsibilities while organizing technical and cultural fests. This really helped me to showcase my leadership, communication and managerial skills and further instilled the spirit of taking up the managerial job as my career objective.  After graduation, I joined Cognizant Technology solutions.  At CTS, while working at different roles and responsibilities I learnt how managerial skills aid the technology and can create wonders.  

Now I want to dig deeper and want to acquire the business knowledge in greater depth. I am looking forward to move up in the ladder which requires good management skills along with better understanding of business. FMS is one of the most prestigious colleges of India which can help me achieve my goals.

  • @alyusa this happens to be a SOP - Statement of "Purpose".... 29 Apr.

Please review my sOP - Urgent.
Words : No limit but brief essay preferred.

A Diploma followed by Engineering gave me an inquisitive attitude towards life. Multiple projects throughout my academics instilled a sense of innovation & teamwork in me. My 34 month stint at Accenture opened doors to critical domain knowledge & opportunities to interact with global clients, which enhanced my analytical & interpersonal skills. Strict delivery schedules developed in me a habit of prioritisng tasks & managing time. Add to it my experience as the President of ISTE-SC & participation in cultural activities like extempore , debates & sports has only made me more resolute and diligent.

I took a sabbatical of 1 year from my successful career in IT to address grave personal concerns , contemplate heavily on my interests & finalize my life ambition. After exploring all my interests,I found my life ambition in my old passion for Capital Markets. I am looking forward to work my path towards Portfolio Management & Equity Research areas. With studies for NCMP & CFA level 1 already begun by me, An MBA at this stage would hone my skills , instill in me a new sense of wisdom & help me foray into the massive world of finance equipped with essential skillsets. A well known institute like Welingkar with the presence of reputed faculties, rich alumni base , heavy industrial exposure and a chance to study with the best peer groups makes it an ideal launchpad for my aspirations. Through all these factors I will be able to channelize my abilities for achieving my long term life goals successfully.

"Don't set compensation as a goal. Find work you like, and the compensation will follow. " - Harding Lawrence

During my graduation, I realized that I wanted to work in a field which makes me happy. Communications is an industry which allows me to do something challenging, dynamic and innovative and channelize my creative abilities. Also, a field which allows me to learn and grow as I go along. However, in order to do the same, I need industry and subject knowledge, resources and guidance for growing and learning at the same time. MICA, with its updated curriculum, innovative teaching techniques and practical learning-oriented courses provides me with all that is needed by me to build a solid platform to grow on. ‚Ź €š

Do give me blunt and quick feedback. Thank you
