Statement of Motivation for a DBA

As 65% of today’s projects do not achieve their objectives, I believe that my DBA studies will help me to strengthen my confidence in the business world overall and enhance my knowledge of all processes separately. In such way, I hope the DBA program will give me a better insight into management and processes, will enable me to better define my weaknesses and strengths and so acquire a greater understanding of my required priorities.

Also, I hope to develop my abilities to maintain concentration and consistency in the development of the project and to pay more attention to small details. Further, I expect to be able to identify how each event in the World can both affect every region differently and all countries together. Similarly, I expect to build my strengths and to stimulate my weaker areas while achieving the ultimate goal of acquiring a better understanding of the differing mentalities of people in different countries and environments, along with their working philosophy.

With this combination of knowledge and a greater understanding of multiple markets, I will have the possibility to aim for new targets and additionally to put myself in a position to make a greater positive contribution.
