I am applying for admission to the undergraduate program in Business Administration because I want a career in the research and teaching of management. In particular, I am interested in factors that affect the competitive performance of a business concern, and the manner in which changes in technology affect an organizations structure, long-term business strategy, product development, manufacturing, supply chains, distribution network, information needs and standard systems.

I never would have done my homework or studied when I needed to if I did not have this quality. My tenacity sometimes becomes a burden however, because I always use caution when starting something and never try to start something that I cant finish. Therefore sometimes I miss out on opportunities, but yet at the same time eliminate
