SOP As My Undergraduate Studies Reach Their Essay

Excerpt from Essay :


As my undergraduate studies reach their finish, I am ready to embark upon the next phase of my academic career. The Bradford University's reputable MSc program in Finance, Accounting, and Management offers the depth and breadth I am currently seeking. As an international student who has lived in the UK for the past four years, I also believe I have much to offer to Bradford and its student body.

Being able to communicate in multiple languages makes it so that I can help broker deals between companies doing business with China.
