I am a mature student currently undertaking an Access course at Chelmsford College. My aim is to achieve the skills and qualification I need to begin my university career. At University it is my intention to complete as degree in Business Management and Finance.
I have always been interested in businesses and how they operate in our everyday lives. Being a mature student and housewife mum, I feel that I have qualities required to successfully complete not only the Access course but to the use my skills and abilities to complete a degree in Business studies.
My interest in Business studies developed in terms of work experience back in Brazil (Portuguese is my first language) I have a brother that have his own business, I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with him and board meetings and gained insight into decision making, it has enable me to experience what it is like to cope under strict targets and high pressure.
I am extremely organised person, I am able to multi task, I can work to deadlines, I consider myself to be a good communicator and I manage my family budget and finances I am the one who deals with all my “household business”. Further I am able to work well as part of a group and I have good numerical and IT skills.
Academically I have always been a very determined and studios individual, hence why I knew that a degree at University would be the definite next step. I have already completed an NVQ Business and Administration level 2. Business studies has proved to be a fascinating subject, I am passionate about Global Business Environment and how it controls various factors in the international business environment, one that offers unlimited professional opportunities. I am particularly looking forward to learning about the international business world and I am relishing the thought of learning to integrate with people from different countries and culture.
