Hi,

I'm a new user, in this site. Please help me to fix my motivation letter

----------------------------------------------------

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you to apply for the Master of Science in Banking and Finance.

Though I hold my degree in Computer Science, my aim is to work in an international Bank related to Finance and Investments. Therefore I would like to gain theoretical and practical knowledge in Banking and Finance in a multicultural context. I believe a University with high reputation like *** and Its highly knowledgeable faculty members – Alessandro Beber, Jean-Pierre Danthine, Michael Rockinger is the best place to achieve my career objectives.

I hold a four years Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from North South University. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in December 2003. Besides my studies, I started my career as a part-time investment consultant on 1996. Since, I am very much interested about finance and investment, I picked “Forecasting of Stock Price” as my final thesis. In the thesis, I tried to integrate business forecasting models – ARIMA, Time-series Decomposition with computer generated regression analysis. After my graduation, I devoted my full time on investment consulting. I registered on Meenhar Securities Ltd., Vanik Bangladesh Ltd. and Vanguard Securities Ltd. for trade through the stock exchanges.

The ambitions I have exposed to you would not be true without a solid theoretical background and a strong real world experience specialized in the banking and finance. I am deeply confident that HEC-Lausanne is one of the best places for learning banking and finance. Switzerland is very much well known for her Banks and financial institutions and I want to learn from the leader to fulfill my ambitions.

Thank you very much for considering my request. I am looking forward for your positive response.

Sincerely Yours,
A
'Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in application for admission to your Master of Science in Banking and Finance degree program.

Although my current degree is in Computer Science, my aim is to work in an international bank in the area of finance and investments. Therefore I would like to gain theoretical and practical knowledge in banking and finance in a multicultural context. I believe that a university with a high reputation like HEC-Lausanne and its highly knowledgeable faculty – Alessandro Beber, Jean-Pierre Danthine and Michael Rockinger for instance - is the best place to achieve my career objectives.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from North South University, completing it in December 2003. Outside my studies, I began my career as a part-time investment consultant in 1996. Since I am very much interested in finance and investment, I selected "Forecasting Stock Price" as my thesis topic. In this thesis, I integrated business forecasting models – ARIMA, Time-series Decomposition - with computer-generated regression analysis. After graduation, I devoted myself full time to investment consulting. I am registered at Meenhar Securities Ltd., Vanik Bangladesh Ltd. and Vanguard Securities Ltd. for trade through the stock exchanges.

My ambitions cannot be realized without a solid theoretical background and strong real-world experience specializing in banking and finance, and I am confident that HEC-Lausanne is one of the best places for mastering these areas. Switzerland is well known for her banks and financial institutions and I consider it critical to learn from the leader.

Thank you very much for considering my application. I am looking forward for your positive response.

I would think that there should also be mention in your letter of a curriulum vitae attached, Arefin.

Welcome to English Forums, and good luck with your application.
Thanx Micawber for the corrections. Here is my curriculum vitae. Can you please check this, too?

Objective

The challenging tasks of finance, particularly investment and financial management always intrigue me.

Experiences

During my undergraduate studies, I have developed, individually and on teamwork basis, different software programs for practical applications including as follows:

1. I developed human resource software for Development Design Consultant Ltd (DDC), 10th largest in Asia and 58th largest consulting firm of the world, named Project Personnel Management.
Advantages of Project Personnel Management
Human resource managers can use this software to see details about their workers addresses, workloads, performances, salaries and their workstation. The software helps the human resource manager to assign Workers and Engineers in their new projects. It also assists them to reduce wastage of time of their workforces and minimize their cost.
2. I, association with Securities and Exchange Commission of Bangladesh and Dhaka Stock Exchange developed “Forecasting of Stock Prices”. I implemented short term forecasting software for the general people who can invest on the stock market. The software helps people to invest their valuable money in right place in right time.
Advantages of Forecasting of Stock Prices
Forecasting of Stock Prices helps to invest in the Stock market. It can predict share price for all the companies enlisted in the Dhaka Stock Exchange. But because of time and data constraint, I am unfortunate to implement long term forecasting software rather than short term which is only five to ten days.
3. I gathered experience as Web Developer while taking course CSC482-Advanced Internet and Web Technology under the guidance of Dr. Miftahur Rahman, Department Head of Computer Science and Engineering, North South University. I built an Online Automated Auction System named dhaka-bay.
Advantages of dhaka-bay
The main advantage of dhaka-bay is any one can buy or sell their products in the Internet sitting at home. It helps business owners to reduce their business cost by using Just in Time method. Business owners can order the company the goods that customers ordered them. It reduces their inventory cost. So, it maximizes their profit. It also helps customers. They can buy goods at a cheaper rate and bargain in dhaka-bay. An Intelligent Search Engine also integrated in dhaka-bay, so that people can search for their products easily. dhaka-bay mainly performs customer to customer type (C2C) business.
4. I gathered experience as a Database Administrator and created a database system for the music industry named Music Information System, under the direct guidance of Emdad Ahmed, faculty, North South University.
Advantages of Music Information System
Music Lovers can search for a particular Song, Singer or Album in the database.
5. In my MIS460 course under the guidance of Nurul Hasan Khan, I built a decision support system for a cab company named Dhaka Cab Distribution System (DCDS).
Advantages of Dhaka Cab Distribution System
Cab companies can distribute their vehicles in Dhaka in respect of their Effectiveness, Efficiency of the company as well as Customer Support.
6. I developed an online book catalogue for the country’s renowned publishing company Ankur Prokashoni.
7. I acquired experience as Network Administrator while taking course CSC338 under the guidance of M.S.Raunak, Associate Professor, North South University.

Objective

The challenging tasks of finance, particularly investment and financial management, always intrigue me.

Experiences

During my undergraduate studies, I developed, individually and on a teamwork basis, different software programs for practical applications including:

1. I developed human resource software called 'Project Personnel Management' for Development Design Consultants Ltd (DDC), a large international consulting firm. Human resource managers can use this software to access details of workers addresses, workloads, performances, salaries and workstations. The software helps the managers to assign workers and engineers to new projects, and it also assists them in reducing wastage of time by their workforces, thus minimizing their costs.

2. In association with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Bangladesh and Dhaka Stock Exchange, I developed “Forecasting of Stock Prices”. I implemented short term forecasting software for the general public who invest on the stock market. This software helps investors choose the right stocks at the right time. 'Forecasting of Stock Prices' offers 5- to 10-day predictions of share prices for all the companies listed on the Dhaka Stock Exchange. Because of time and data constraints, I was unfortunately unable to implement longer term forecasting software.

3. I gathered experience as a Web Developer while taking the Advanced Internet and Web Technology course under the guidance of Dr. Miftahur Rahman, Department Head of Computer Science and Engineering, North South University. I built an Online Automated Auction System named 'dhaka-bay'. The main advantage of dhaka-bay is that anyone can buy or sell products on the Internet while sitting at home. It helps business owners to reduce their business costs by using the 'Just-in-Time' method. Retail owners can order from the supplier at the same time that customers order from them, thus reducing inventory cost and maximizing profit. Customers also benefit,in that they can buy goods at cheaper prices via dhaka-bay. An Intelligent Search Engine is also integrated into dhaka-bay, so that consumers can search for products easily. Dhaka-bay mainly performs customer-to-customer type (C2C) transactions.

4. I gained experience as a Database Administrator and created a database system named 'Music Information System' for the music industry, under the direct guidance of Emdad Ahmed of North South University. Music Lovers can search for a particular song, singer or album in the database.

5. In my MIS460 course under the guidance of Nurul Hasan Khan, I built a decision support system for a taxicab fleet, Dhaka Cab Distribution System (DCDS). Cab companies can deploy their vehicles throughout Dhaka effectively, efficiently and for maximum customer support.

6. I developed an online book catalogue for the country’s renowned publishing company, Ankur Prokashoni.
