Dear Dr. Done,

I am an Economics graduate of Aquinas University in the California. The university is known to produce top tier graduates with excellent academic records plus a well-rounded person.

I have this burning ambition to widen my horizons through higher studies. I want to be an instrument to help the business economy. I strongly believe that through the Master in Business Administration program of Lincoln University, I can enhance and hone my knowledge thoroughly. It will open my eyes to the global setting of business economy. It will help me prepare as well to be a leader and mentor.

Allow me to briefly give you some information about myself. I have a passion for reading educational magazines, management books, and journals. Among my academic strengths include Algebra, Statistics, Accounting, Finance, Marketing and Management.

I also held the position as the Student Council President of our college. Some of my key achievements as President are: the tutoring program, relief operations to victims of different calamities and initiated the talks regarding adding additional study areas.

I am hopeful for the opportunity to become part of your prestigious university. Given the premier curriculum, competent and high caliber faculty and state-of-the art classroom and facilities, it will help me attain my goals and plans.

I look forward to hear a favorable response regarding my application for the Master in Business Administration program of Lincoln University.
