Simply put, accounting is the study of how to properly record and analyze financial transactions in an organization, business, or even at a personal level.

Specifically, I am interested in corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, financial analysis, and accounting. Knowledge in these fields will enable me to have requisite skills that I will need when I will be teaching students’ accounts and finance in future.
My interest in finance has enabled me to interact with various individuals with whom we share similar interests. In the summer of 2012, I dedicated much of my holiday to offering free training on accounts to local businesses. This training enabled me to gain valuable skill and experience in teaching, especially in accounts and finance. Importantly, this assistance enabled most of these businesses to eliminate costs that were due to poor financial management or failure to account for all costs. At a class level, I have been highly involved in various research programs. During the fall of 2012, I conducted a research on the impact of corporate social responsibility to businesses. Further, in the spring of 2014, along with my fellow classmates, we conducted an analysis on the effectiveness of a product to meet the market needs.
My exposure to the teaching of accounts, especially to my fellow student and members of the school’s accounting and finance association has nurtured my desire to be a professor in accounting and finance. I have been privileged to have a firsthand experience on how knowledge in this field can positively impact on the lives of individuals and business. As a result, I would be honored to have an opportunity to study my Ph.D. in [Insert university name]. Moreover, I will also be able to conduct a research on the impact of public governance in ensuring proper accountability and distribution of wealth in the society.
My ultimate goal after studying this course is to become a university professor. In this position, I will be able to conduct research on finance as well as to instruct students in accounting and finance.
