This is to request an application package for MBA s
tudies starting inthe fall of 1999. I graduated from th
e China Steel University in Shanghai with aBachelor's D
egree in Garment Manufacturing Engineering in 1990.
In thesubsequent two years, I worked as a designer
and engineer for a coupleof fashion manufacturing compa
nies. In1993, I went to Hong, Kong,where I joined a gar
ment company as a trade agent.
In 1994, I became an entrepreneur in my own right a
nd engaged in thebooming computer business. I started a
computer company specializingin business software devel
opment. The business was very successful,with annual sa
les close to three million US dollars and profit of clo
seto 30,000 US dollars. In April 1998, I sold this prom
ising businessfor a handsome profit. The sale was made
for strategic considerations.
More and more multinational companies are now enter
ing the Chinesemarket. Making it much harder for a smal
l firm to compete on its ownin the market. It is now ti
me for me to move onto something else.
As I turn the corner in my career, I plan to furthe
r hone my businessskills through advanced business trai
ning in your MBA program. Ibelieve that such training,
combined with my entrepreneurial experienceand practica
l skills, will stand me in good stead as I seek greater
achievements in a modem Chinese market economy that boa
sts as manyopportunities as challenges.
I will be taking the required TOEEL and GMAT tests
in October this year.

RE: Request for an application package for your MBA
programDear Sir or Madam:
I am the office administrator for CreditCard's Beij
ing RepresentativeOffice, and I am writing in the hope
of earning an MBA in your businessschool.
I first did my undergraduate studies in a four-year
businessadministration program with the Liaoning Univer
sity, the most importanthigher-learning institution in
China's most industrialized province.
Since my graduation in 1986, I have also completed
a variety oftraining programs to enrich my knowledge an
d enhance my skills.
As I seek to assume greater and greater responsibil
ities in theforeign business sector in China, I find th
at I need to undertake moreadvanced business education,
especially a Western-style businesseducation, if I am t
o succeed. I would therefore like to apply foracceptanc
e into your distinguished business program. With over 1
0years of working experience behind me, I should probab
ly be considereda mature student if and when accepted,
and I wish to bring all thatexperience, particularly my
knowledge of how foreign businesses inChina operate on
a daily basis, into the business school with me. Itwoul
d be greatly appreciated if you could send me an applic
ationpackage and any other relevant material.
Yours sincerely,Sallie Niu
