Currently I’m persuading my course in BSC Business and Management. I intend to pursue my further studies in marketing. My area of interest is on how people react and take action in aggressive and intense business environment. Choosing Bargaining and Negotiation as a course for my summer school at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences will help me in developing my area of interest and will increase my understanding in negotiations.
People negotiate daily, often without considering it a negotiation. Negotiation occurs in organizations, including businesses, non-profits, and within and between governments as well as in sales and legal proceedings, and in personal situations such as marriage, divorce, parenting, etc.
It is aimed to resolve points of difference, to gain advantage for an individual or collective, or to craft outcomes to satisfy various interests. Having an understanding about the different types of negotiations styles, ethics, trust and relationship-building, creativity and problem solving, behaviour of skilled negotiators, emotions in negotiations will help me conduct effective negotiations in both my professional and personal life. This course will help me improve on negotiation skills by reflecting on my own personal strengths and weaknesses.
This course will also help me meet and interact with different people form across the world and from different cultures. Understanding and learing about them, their new cultures and the way they look at negotiations will be exciting and sharpen my skills of negotiation with people from across the world.
Harvard Law School recently named Nelson Mandela as one of the best negotiators in history. He was well known for his patience, strategic thinking, practicality, and unwillingness to quit. Like Nelson Mandela I want to make a difference.
I deserve this scholarship because receiving this scholarship will boost my self-confidence, knowing that I not only completed a very important task, but also took the responsibility of creating a foundation for getting me closer to my career goals. Therefore, I plan to work extra hard to obtain a degree from a top educatonal institute in Negotiation and Bargaining.
The scholarship award will only push me further towards my Marketing degree and my dreams of one day having a successful career as an Marketing head. I also believe in giving back to my community by helping others in crisis.
Five years from now I see myself as marketing innovator for my onw company and personally as a great snooker player. I feel blessed that I am given the opportunity to be applying for a scholarship to help fulfill my dream and I will prove that I do have what it takes to not only be a successful student, but an outstanding negotiator.
