One of the main reasons why I choose management as my major is because I need good leadership skills which I may use to lead people to achieve organizational goals. Based on my goal of starting my own business with friends, teamwork will be inevitable if we want to become successful in our business (Brigham & Houston, 2004). Therefore, the team requires a good manager with effective leadership qualities in order to achieve higher team performance. I choose management major because it will enable me to learn about management in theory and practice. The course will enhance my managerial and leadership knowledge and skills in order to lead and motivate effective teams.
I also choose management major in order to build my existing leadership skills. Currently, I am a decisive leader with good communication skills. I am also a good time manager, and I have good social skills. Some of my hobbies include chatting with friends and engaging in outdoor activities. These leadership skills qualify me to become a good manager (Chambers, 1969). Therefore, I need a little more knowledge in management in order to boost my leadership abilities and enable me to lead my friends to achieve our business objectives.
My choice of management major has also been motivated by the need to provide effective management and efficient utilization of resources in order to achieve sustainable development. I am concerned with efficient utilization of human capabilities, financial resources and physical resources. My great concern for the environment and its people has made me to develop an interest in a managerial position in order to develop appropriate environmental-friendly approaches of managing resources. Studying management course is the best step for me to qualify as an effective manager. As a manager, I am looking forward to promoting servant hood leadership guided by concern about the environment and the community. It is therefore important for me to pursue a management major in order to achieve my dream.
