Statement of Purpose
I am Ali Mohammad. I am Saudi Arabian born in 1986. I am an applicant interested in
studying Management Information Systems (MIS) at your university for the bachelor degree starting in
Spring 2007. I received a full scholarship from the Saudi Cultural Mission to the USA to pursue my
study in the field of MIS.
My interest in MIS was initiated by my readings in this field. I seek to pursue this field for my
ambition to specialize in a highly professional and attractive field. My plans for my career have set this
major at the top of my priorities. I am sure your school is the place where my academic dreams will
come true. MIS professionals are very scarce in Saudi Arabia. This area of study should make me one
of those who contribute to filling that professional gap in the Saudi work market with the expertise I
hope to achieve at your university.
In the mean time, I received my secondary school certificate and I am ready to start my
education. Since the processing of visa applications at the US consulate takes some time, I thought
Spring 2006 would a better choice. Therefore, upon approving decision, I would like to be granted
admission with an I-20 that includes ESL and BA study.
I prepared this statement of purpose with the help of an alumnus of a US
school who spoke high of the US educational system and encouraged and helped me
and many other graduate and undergraduate applicants to apply to US schools. I am
sure the love and respect this alumnus has shown for the US educational system is
well-established and very justified. I hope to become another US education alumnus.
Currently, I am in need for an ESL preparation program, especially academic English,
which universities usually provide through an English language center or institute.
When I graduate, I have plans to go back to Saudi Arabia and work as an MIS
specialist. Furthermore, I plan to apply for graduate school and seek a graduate degree
within the same field.
My hope is that your consideration of my file will render a favorable decision.
I am confident a decision like that will definitely change my life and put me on the
verge of a bright future of which I hope your school will be the main thrust.
