MyPersonal Experience and Skills
Thethree goalsthat I haverightnow
Building a network
Beingan internationalstudentrequiresone to havestrongsocialnetworks.Thesocialnetworkprovidesone with a platformto interactwith a widerangeof peoplein my fieldandfrom otherfields.In my areaof study,networking will be importantin helpingme buildmy careerthrough acquiringinformationfrom therelevantpeople.Besides this,my statusas an internationalstudentcallsforme to interactwith peoplefrom variouscountriesandbackgrounds.Through them, I can learnmoreabout thefinancialstatusin thedifferentpartsof theworld,especiallyin thecurrentdynamicenvironment.In my dreamof establishingandmanaginga business,networking with otherpeoplewith similarinterestsandfrom otherfieldswill serveas an inputto thenumberof potentialbuyersandresourcepersons.
Asan internationalstudentstudyingin America, I donot wantto curtailmy experienceto theimmediateculturewithout exploringthewayof lifeof peoplefrom othercountries.I lookforwardto studyingin anothercountryandexperiencea newenvironmentas wellas interactingwith otherstudents.Asa businessmajor,I understandthatitis imperativeto understanddifferentcontexts.Differentculturalenvironmentsmay requirethecustomization of venturesto be in linewith its culturalvalues.Havingan experiencewith thecultureswill widenmy perspectiveof theviable businessesviable in a country.I will alsojuxtaposethedifferentculturesandunderstandtheunderlying reasonsfortheir variation.
Analysis of Investment Opportunities
Asa practicing financial, investment and business professional, skillswill be of major use. During my internship program, I learned how toanalyze different investment opportunities and come up with aprofitable portfolio of investment. Making investment decision is notan easy task as I used to think before I went to take the internship.Information on the current financial health of such an investment isone of the most important pieces of information. Further, I knew thatthe risk of business is un-inevitable and dynamics exist inconducting investment decision. In the future, the information willhelp me because I intent to invest back in my country’s stockmarket and I would definitely wish to do so in a profitableportfolio. Identifying a profitable portfolio would be a difficulttask but thanks to the information I learnt in my course and theinformation I experience I got from the internship program.
Understand the Financial Environment
Iwould also like to be a professional investment and financial analystoffering advice to people who want to pursue sound investment paths.The internship program came in handy in equipping me with theknowledge and the wide context of the business world in general. Ialso understand the financial practice of different countriesfollowing my networking and interaction with people from differentparts of the world. The world being a global village would requiredynamism in terms of practice and understanding the investingenvironment. Cross-border Liberalization policies and provision offinancial standards in practice require understanding the globalsituation of the economy, financial and investment concepts. Myinteraction with different clients during the internship enabled meachieve all the above objectives and hope the same will be of greatbenefit in developing and achieving my life ambitions.
