Hello, could someone check this first version of my master application? Would really appreciate it.
Dear Sir or Madam,
my name is ______and I am writing you to express my interest in applying for the Master programme Innovation & Management in Tourism, scheduled to start in September 2013.
I am currently studying Management and Tourism at the NHTV University of Applied Sciences in Breda, The Netherlands. During my time at this University I have gained a strong academic background in the subjects marketing, imagineering, destination management and corporate communication. Combined with my work experience in the field of eTourism at the company _____, I am the best candidate for this master.
The international orientation of the programme is what appeals to me the most. I have spent 6 months abroad as an intern in Switzerland. Here I worked at a international department and this absolutely broadened my own horizon. I enjoy working in the tourism industry, because it is an dynamic and continuously changing business. Because of my time abroad my language skills in English and German are both excellent. I also enjoy learning new languages.
Another reason for choosing this specific master, is that it perfectly matches with the courses that I have followed during my Bachelor education (see transcript of records). I am specifically interested in Imagineering, the USP of this programme.
My professional goal is to work in a leading position for a well-known company in the field of tourism, after successfully finishing my masters degree. This master programme will contribute positively to the evolution of my career.
I am certain that my previous academic career, my strong interest and existing knowledge in tourism, my ambition and eagerness to broaden my horizon and educate myself further make me a highly suitable candidate for the Innovation & Management in Tourism Master programme at your University.
Thank you for considering my application.
