Statement of Purpose (SOP) Samples For MBA Admission

SOP Sample I – MBA with Marketing Specialization

It often happens that the very best of our capabilities and inner strengths are tested and brought to light when we willingly take on challenges.

I have always chosen the later.  Read more of this Sample Marketing MBA SOP

SOP Sample II – General MBA

I learnt the core values of focus, perseverance and patience at a very early stage of my life. My father who is a patient, disciplined and determined individual, would spend countless number of hours in his endeavor to purchase a residential property in the nascent economic times of 1985 in India. His success in buying our dream home and at a “value-for-money” motivated me to follow his ideals. A few years later, it was this belief that led me to major success in organizing a cultural/religious event in our sprawling locality. After convincing nearly 10 of my friends staying nearby, I went on to solve problems in the other two areas of concern – lack of funds and unwillingness of the community towards contributing to the event. Beyond the schooling and study hours, I led the team towards garnering contributions from more than 100 households in the locality. Slowly and gradually, and over a 2 month period, we had crossed our targeted revenue collection. The event was a mega-success and established the trend for similar cohesive celebrations and the foundation for the “Cultural events committee” in the residential complex.

As a 13-year-old, I realized my passion for adventure when I crossed the Atlantic Ocean (a 400-mile single lap journey) on a small coastal freighter (1). Over time this passion was channelized through entrepreneurship. My first company “did roaring business” for ##-years providing in-vogue sunglasses at ABC college and funded most of my college tuition. Read More of this Sample MBA in Entrepreneurship SOP

  6. Hello,
    I am a professional civil engineer with three years of work experience.
    For an MBA abroad, what can be the career path for a civil engineer


    • Hi Rajan,

      With a civil engineering background and an MBA, you can quickly grow to seniority in project management roles or possibly shift to marketing or finance roles if you have those inclinations. IF you are looking at an international MBA, Canada would be the best option since the the civil industry there is a growth phase. Civil engineers are also given priority processing for Canadian Green Card Applicants.

      Hope this helps!
