Suggestions.Dear Sir or Madam,
I am hereby applying for entrance for the Bachelor's in Economic and Business at the Universiteit van Amsterdam in September 2013.
The subject of Economics fascinates me. It is interconnected with
mostmany social sciences and is the reason behindfoundation upon which most financial ourdecisions are based. I wish to educate myselfbecome educated on its complexity and learn the useful tools on how to benefit from my knowledge on this subject. A BSc in Economics and Business is the perfect program for me. After having completedearned a BSC, I would like to extendexpand my studies by focusing on finance. andI understand that UvA offers a master program just for that purpose.
During my secondary education I participated in many exchange programs
toin England and Scotland. I have realized that living in another country has made me more mature, has allowed me to acquire new skills and clarifyhas clarified my life goals. As IHaving previously visited United Kingdom before, I chose the USA as the country toin which to spend a year inas an exchange student. Studying in the USA offered me many new experiences. I was themost interested in choosingsubjects of my choosing I preferredand pickingselecting classes withof higher difficulty. One, among many of the highlights in the US, was the participation at the DECA state championships; a competition for all business and marketing students in the whole state. I was fascinated aboutwith how businesses operate d, how marketing worked and how everybody could be unconsciously influenced (Either explain this or delete it). I also participated in a few school debates over subjects like same sex marriage and gun control. Researching and debating these and similar issues influenced me in choosing Netherlands as the country in which I would like to live and study. (Why?)
A very obvious reason why the UvA is an attractive university is its internationality. Amsterdam is very international making UvA the perfect place to start an international business career. The university has a high percentage of international students. I would love to
bestudy among international students, because it is a great possibility to broaden my horizons and get in touch with people on an international scale. This I see as a clear advantage in pursuing a career in business and economics. Another good reason for me to join the UvA is its high standard of education. UvA is highly ranked and this attracts top professors. In addition, the wide range of top partner universities and student networks offer more possibilities to a better education.
All this distinguishes UvA from other universities and is making my choice clear
on at whatas to which university I want to study. Thank you for considering my application. I would be very pleased to be granted admission for the fall term.
