The rapid change in IT causes an already uncertain business environment to be even more unpredictable. Organizations’ ability to identify the relevant information needed to make important decisions is crucial, since the access to data used to generate information for decision-making is no longer restricted by the manual systems of the organization. Information Technology (IT) can record, synthesize, analyze and disseminate information quicker than at any time in history. Data can be collected from different parts of the company and its external environment and brought together to provide relevant, timely, concise and precise information at all levels of the organization to help it become more efficient, effective and competitive. Information can now be delivered to the right people at the right time, thus enabling well-informed decisions to be made. With the realization that information is an important resource which can be used in a novel way to enhance the competitive position of business, information technology and information systems are becoming strategically important for business. Information systems are moving out of the backroom, low-level support position, to emerge as the nerve centres of organizations and competitive weapons at the front end of businesses. It is evident that activity in the management information systems field will continue in many directions at once, driven by market forces, by organizational needs and technical opportunity. Rapid development of the Internet with its new services and applications has created fresh challenges for the further development of information systems. There is a need for greater understanding of the strategic alignment between Information Technology and Business so as to reach the expected levels and hence this field promises to be very exciting and I aspire to be part of this field to make my contribution. I feel a Masters’ degree in Information...
Immigration is a way to move from one country to another country to live and to work. Nowadays, many people decide to immigrate to have a better life. Immigrants increase economic efficiency by reducing labor shortages in low- and high-skilled markets because their educational backgrounds fill holes in the native-born labor market.There are many causes of immigration, but we put the scope on two causes of immigration. There are the employment and the education.
First, employment opportunities are the most common reason that people decide to emigrate. In other countries, there will be variety kind of jobs and as a result, people will have a lot of opportunities to find a job. Moreover, finding a job in other countries will probably lead to having high salary and modern working environment. For example, many people go to Russia and Korea to work as a construction worker and as a consequence, they earn higher salaries than in their home country. All of these things will possibly lead to immigration.
Second cause of immigration is education opportunities, it will certainly cause directly having better future for children. With a better education, children will have chances to adapt to new style of studying and it might cause children to be a creative, flexible people and they will be able to becoming independence. For instance, studying in a Western university, children can change their study styles, especially they have to adapt with active learning which is...

I have analyzed my professional and academic life to identify the work that exhilarated me and I identified the areas of the work where my passion is aligned with. The area of work that excites me is where technology, finance, logistics, business and management are involved. Being an engineering graduate, I perceive the need to undergo formal management education which would not only streamline my career path as per my aspirations but also equip me with the right abilities to tackle complex challenges that I might face later in my profession. I believe this is a right time to stretch my wings and pursue my career in management.
Should the one year gap in education be mentioned? If yes, how to portray it as something positive?
It’s already too long (664 words and still 2 paras to be added) and if you can think of something I can omit, do suggest.
I have decided to leave out the part about extra-curricular activities done in college as they would be covered in the resume anyway.
Next para would start with my long term goal (which I’m unable to decide on) and how this particular course and university would be suited. That would be my university specific para.
Last para would be concluding remarks, more or less the same as the ones written under.
Also an MBA would mean an opportunity to interact with a...

Why I chose to pursue a master degree
Mohamud A. Ahmed
COM 515 Business Communications
Why I chose a graduate degree has many reasons that are not enough to summarize them here in one or two pages. The time I decided to join UOP was the right moment I seized my luck or I may have never got another chance to take the advantage of it. Coming back to academic field was not an easy task. It was an intrinsic party of my goal. The decision to pursue a master degree took me almost fourteen years. There are two basic things of why I chose the master degree: career development and personal growth. The world is more sophisticated and insecure in terms of both economic uncertainties and stabilities. So that you need what can me you keep up with those uncertainties.
After I graduated from the university, I joined the working professionals of which I hardly waited to see the fruits of my four-year bachelor degree. I was in this field more than fourteen years. I obtained enough work experience, and I set several goals which I though I will obtain in ten years. From the outset of my goal planning, I put higher degree my first priority, but it failed to come practical with a number of reasons: First, I was living in a country that had no higher institution that provides MBA or MSc. The only possible opportunity at the time was lobbying for outside scholarship on which was entirely...
What Is a Management Information System?
A management information system (MIS) is a set of systems and procedures that gather information from a range of sources, compile it and present it in a readable format. Managers use an MIS to create reports that provide them with a comprehensive overview of all the information they need to make decisions ranging from daily minutiae to top-level strategy. Today's management information systems rely largely on technology to compile and present data, but the concept is older than modern computing technologies.
A management information system gives the business managers the information that they need to make decisions. Early business computers were used for simple operations such as tracking inventory, billing, sales, or payroll data, with little detail or structure. Over time, these computer applications became more complex, hardware storage capacities grew, and technologies improved for connecting previously isolated applications. As more data was stored and linked, managers sought greater abstraction as well as greater detail with the aim of creating significant management reports from the raw, stored data. Originally, the term "MIS" described applications providing managers with information about sales, inventories, and other data that would help in managing the enterprise.

...WHY A MASTER AND HOW
Why a Master of Business Administration and How I Decided
Master of Business Administration: A Stepping Stone To Success
Noted American poet, Robert Frost, once wrote, "Two roads diverged in wood and I I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." (Frost, 1920). As I struggled to decide how to pursue my long-term educational goals, I found the above-mentioned passage replaying in my mind.
Ultimately, it is because I recognize the importance of taking the proverbial "road less traveled" that I have chosen to pursue a master of business administration degree (hereinafter "MBA") at the University of Phoenix. The discussion that follows details the thought process and factors that helped me make the decision and describes what I hope to achieve as a result.
According to a report based on the 2000 census, only 14.3% of African-Americans over the age of twenty-five have a bachelor's degree. (Bauman and Graf, 2003). Even more alarming is the fact that only 4.8% of the same group hold an advanced degree. (Bauman and Graf, 2003). These numbers are a sad, but telling commentary on the status of education in this country. I, however, am not a statistic. As an immigrant and the first member of my immediate family to complete high school and attend college, I have always known that education would be my passport to a better life. I am also fully aware that it is...
