    insufficient amount

    Hi, I’m just joined this forum, and hope I’m writing in appropriate sub-forum.
    I have a question about one expression in my motivation letter to the university:

    “…During last year of work I noticed insufficient amount of international knowledge for my career development. As my job was connected with markets of foreign countries, I felt that I needed deeper understanding of international business culture, principles of a trading in a global market, international communication.”

    I feel that expression insufficient amount is incorrect in this case, but I do not like everything I can create instead it.
    Any ideas?

    Re: insufficient amount

    How about:

    During my last year of working, I realised that my exposure to international business, an area which I sought for career development, was lacking/inadequate?

    - a deeper understanding
    - principles of trading (without "a") in a global market and international communication.
    I am not a teacher.
