Master’s Health Administration Personal Statement of Purpose

Updated: Jan 14

New England has always been my home, finishing Smith College in 1986, I earned my MBA at Georgetown in 1990 and went on to success in the business world. While I have enjoyed business, it has been my volunteer work which has most fulfilled me and given me my pride and joy: health administration. I like to think that I have outgrown the banking industry on a human level and want to now direct my career towards serving on teams in the business of healing, incorporating more humanity and nobility into my life’s work. As an equestrian, I serve as a volunteer board member of two therapeutic riding centers where we work with people struggling with autism, blindness, cerebral palsy, and many other maladies.

My growing interest in healing and healthcare has led me to this application to your distinguished master's degree in healthcare administration program. The skills that I have learned throughout the course of many years in the banking industry will enable me to hit the ground running and excel in your program, especially since they are coupled to my passion for healthcare: issues, concerns, new horizons, etc. XXXX University Executive Master of Health Administration is my first choice for further study for a variety of reasons, my attraction to the structure of your program, mostly online, location, curriculum; it all seems to have been tailored to meet my lifestyle, interests, and responsibilities.


In 2014, I was honored by XXXX Magazine in Greenwich, CT for my lifetime endeavors as an equestrian and polo player. I could not be more keenly aware of how privileged I am, have always been, and will quite likely always be. Thus, I now want desperately to make that privilege translate into helping to heal those who are less fortunate, those who are ill, and those members of my community who are suffering.

My experience of service as a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House of NYC has also proved to be determinative in my desire to move from the world of banking to that of health administration. I have watched families struggle mightily to get what their child needs, while others navigate the system seamlessly. I have heard stories of bureaucratic nightmares that some parents faced that brought me to tears; thus, I want to devote the balance of my professional lifetime to fixing, streamlining, improving what I can for as many as I can in my community, especially the vulnerable with few resources.


I have years of management experience, team leadership, talent building, managing budgets, re-structuring management systems, enhancing focus on client/user experience, working in dynamic environments, empowering talent. I have built businesses from the ground up and I believe that much of my MBA skill set will help me to make important contributions to health care administration.

I want to become a mover and a shaker in health care administration.  I have always immensely enjoyed working with health care lenders in my group, helping hospitals to grow and doctors to expand or improve their practices. I thrive as part of a greater cause, helping to create healthier communities, making a difference, and effecting positive change is what fills me with energy and keeps me going. I feel very strongly, deep down inside, that it is simply wrong for some members of our community to have access to the finest medical care in the world and others none. I want to put my master's degree in health administration at XXXX to work, developing meaningful solutions to complex problems in healthcare, especially the challenges represented by the healthcare needs of the underserved.


As a result of my experience at XXXX, I hope to become an innovative health care leader, managing a variety of groups of talented professionals and their institutions, streamlining budgets, and addressing administrative needs in creative ways that increase efficiency, bringing out the best in institutions and people alike. I am highly confident in my ability to do this because, at XXXX, I will learn from the best to be the best and go on to represent XXXX University and its top-notch reputation with great honor and dedication.


Thank you for considering my application.
