I am confident that by studying at this prestigious university, my future will be successful. The university is known for its highly respected and educated professors in the field of accounting.
Most times students find it extremely hard to understand why companies value accounting. I am confident that I know the real value of accounting, and the reason why I seek to endeavor in this career path. Furthermore, by acquiring education in accounting, I will have achieved one goal in my life. It has taken some time, as well as consideration, before coming at a conclusion concerning studying accounting.

In my country, most of the business people export their products to the United States, as it is a market with valuable resources. There are a number of notable scholars and people who have studied accounting in the United States. The scholars are aware of the importance of increasing and improving their skills in a foreign country. In pursuit of achieving my goal, I will benefit from improving my English skills, and even gaining an international perspective. Most of my family members are involved in business practices and are aware of the importance of accounting. In fact, my father owns a business, and when I am through with my education I will help improve his business. It is due to this reason that my father highly encouraged me to study accounting, as he views it as an investment, which is quite valuable.
While, in high school, I performed especially well in mathematics, and my transcripts can give evidence concerning this matter. I believe that mathematics is a foundation for professional and academic development in accounting. Other than that, I have a thorough knowledge in the social sciences and even computer sciences. I am confident that I will cope well with the demands that come along with studying accounting. It is while in high school that I acquired an educational experience regarding why accounting is extremely beneficial. In order for a company to succeed, the accounting matters should be handled in the most appropriate manner. In every company, accountants play a vital role, and I want to experience the prestige and success it has. Later on, I would like to start my own accounting consultancy firm in my country and help improve the skills of other accountants. As a result of my interest in accounting, it is quite clear that the United States is the ideal location for my studies. Furthermore, the decision is extremely logical as America is known for its high development levels, especially in academic matters.
Other than my academic capabilities, I was active in many activities while in high school. There have been a number of organizations, which I have joined, and this contributed to my experiences, which are unique. Many memorable experiences took place while I participated in mathematics related events. I often participated in the organization of such activities and my teachers can attest to this. While participating in various tasks with my classmates, I acquired and learnt various life skills. I learnt how to work in teams and this skill is valuable in accounting, as quite often, I will have to work with other people from various departments. Conflicts will always arise, and I learnt how to deal with this matter effectively. In turn, I also gained valuable skills in leadership, which helped deal with the conflicts that arose. The experiences, which I had in high school, were rewarding, and I am confident that it will assist in my accounting studies.
In the business world, it is vital to be aware of the multicultural and international realities. Furthermore, globalization has taken over the world, and one needs to have an education that is of high standards. By studying overseas, I will benefit from the existing facilities and expertise. In my country, the existing resources are quite unlimited; also, there is no much diversity as compared to America. In the accounting industry, it is vital that the professionals learn and listen from other people, due to the various backgrounds. In conclusion, I am extremely ambitious, as well as motivated, to acquire an accounting education. Furthermore, I will attain my accounting vision, and when am through with my studies, I will go back to my country. The accounting program being offered at your school fits well with my interests. I, therefore, hope to gain admission, and later on, develop professionally as an accountant.
