The most significant contribution I could make to society is to help businesses and individuals invest their time and energy in endeavors that are both good for economic growth and serve the long-term interests of our descendants and our planetary home. As an optimist, I hope to see many of the ravages to our environment that have resulted from the unfettered growth of industry, controlled, harnessed, and directed in such a way as to bring peace to our world and better harmonize our economic lives with our natural environment.
I believe that human beings can relate consciously to capitalism in such a way as to regenerate our planet, preserving it better and destroying it less, in ways that will continue to provide a comfortable lifestyle that endures for our children. For this reason, I hope to earn an MBA Degree at XXXX University, which I see as one of the ideal business programs in the world, particularly in terms of the incorporation of critical consciousness and social responsibility into your curriculum and mission. My long-term goal is to run my consulting practice, traveling worldwide to promote advanced business practices that are profitable, socially responsible, and environmentally friendly. I want to help organizations create or recreate themselves in such a way that they contribute to an elevation of their professional cultures and business links to our globalizing economy, Inspired and driven by a doctrine of regenerative and sustainable business practices that will serve to heal our planet as well as our species; I see myself in the future as a coach and mentor for new entrepreneurs who seek entrance into the rapidly evolving sectors of our economies devoted to sustainable/regenerative business practices. As a Sergeant in the US Marine Corp., I have led Marines worldwide and subsequently became a leader as an entrepreneur, founding two restaurants, one in Dubai, managing an almost entirely international workforce with employees from the Philippines, India, Pakistan, etc.
Meditating every day for the past two years and attending workshops, including a 10-day silent meditation in South Africa, have enabled me to create deep focus, calm, and clarity in my life. I have found my professional calling by reading numerous books on business, attending personal and professional development courses worldwide, and coaching and mentoring young, promising leaders in the industry. Based in San Diego, California, and traveling frequently, I seek to focus more on coaching sustainability and social responsibility as integral aspects of business success. In your distinguished Master’s Program in Business at the University of XXXX, I seek creative input and empowerment that will enable me to maximize my professional, long-term contribution to sustainable development worldwide, serving to preserve our heritage for children.
Thank you for considering my application to the particularly distinguished Master’s Degree Program in Business at XXU.
