Professional Goal Statement
I am one of the students pursuing a graduate program and majoring in business management where I have amassed an extensive wealth of knowledge. I am due to gradate very soon and professional goal statement is significant at determining my position five years after graduating from college. This professional goal statement gives an elaborate explanation of the fundamental theory that I have learnt in business management, the practical aspect obtained from internships, as well as, the personal motivation and interest that has made me pursue this program with as much zeal as possible.
Five years from now, I will have established my own business management consultancy where potential business managers will gain considerably from my extensive knowledge on the field of business management. This will be dependent on the ability to form a partnership with a colleague of mine who also has an exemplary interest in the field of business management. However, if the consultancy will not have picked up, I would like to be in the management of a multinational corporation where I will get a chance to apply my knowledge, as well as, learn from other business managers from other parts of the world.
One strong point that will be significant in establishing my own firm is my ability to lay strategies which are unique hence from past experience risks and uncertainties are rarely encountered as a result of strategies laid by me. This is attributed to my exemplar planning and organization skills which are also duplicated in my academic work. However, my one weak point is lack of adequate research skills which will enable me reach out for profit making ventures hence gain more clients, as well as, increasing profitability of the firm. This will be counter affected by having my colleague as a business partner as he is quite good in market research. Most of these business management skills have been learnt in class while others were learnt as hands-on skills.
Among my personal qualities that will be crucial in determining my success in the corporate world is my elevated degree of patience hence as my firm picks up I will be patient with the profits such that my main aim initially will be to increases the market share despite the minimal profits in the early years. The other quality is that am quite innovative as I remember there was a time during my internship when I suggested that the management of the firm I was working for should revamp their website and mode of packaging to improve on the sale of products. This move was equivocal to increased sales and the firm was able to post high profits that year.
However, one area which needs working on is the ability to work on my tempers so that in future I can learn new ways of releasing my pent up anger rather than pour them out on colleagues. This is because managers are role models and they shape up the working environment of a place hence it would be disastrous to portray my weak side to my colleagues as team work is bound to fail when this happens. Similarly, as a business manager, colleagues and other employees are bound to enquire, as well as, analyze their leader critically hence the need to learn ways of self-control as a way of gaining respect from those who look up to me. This will also enable me to carry out my managerial roles confidently thus my tasks and undertakings will be successful.
