4. Why I want to study economics?
a. I have a strong passion in it.
b. Areas that interest me: macroeconomics, international economics
c. I want to be a professor, researcher, & analyst
5. Examples of research subjects
a. Quantitative and qualitative analysis relating to liberalization and competitive issues in the civil aviation industry
b. Economic analysis related to measuring route traffic and profitability factors effecting fare structuring and licensing policies
c. Econometric analysis of air transport issues and the development of economic forecasts for regulatory, policy and corporate planning purposes
d. Development of statistical and economic data for use in bilateral and other international agreement negotiations
6. What may need to be considered
a. I completed minor in business administration and mathematics (with excellent scores in all advance math courses)
b. My passion for economics started ever since my undergraduate period when I took a course in economics (part of requirnemts for minor in Bus. Adm.) and exposed to different economics areas (e.g macr,
micro), found it extremely interesting.
c. When done with my Bs., I tried to continue my master in economics, but because of the constraint of my scholarship, I had to take my master in aeronautics with AoC in Aviation Management.
7. What should be considered
a. The fact that I?m self-funded, offered a scholarship from my government to study PhD in economics.
b. The SoP should highlight the various skills that I developed during my undergraduate and graduate years (analytical, research, etc.) and employ them into the skills needed for candidates in PhD in economics
c. The SoP should be written in a way that can be used for applying in various schools that don?t have professors or economics specializations related to my background (i.e., aviation) , meaning it should
consider the fact that I may just forget about my background in aviation and concentrate my study in Macro, or international economics and have my dissertation in one of these areas. (in other words, the SoP
should not be confined (in terms of research interest) to my aviation background.
8. With the exception of items 1 (Education), and 7 (What should be considered), the writer is free, when necessary, to disregard any of the above info, and make up anything instead that can lead to an
excellent SoP that reflect
a. My strong passion for economics
b. My exceptional analytical skills and research competencies
c. Proper and interesting research areas and how I?m well prepared and motivated to work on them.
In summary, the writer should translate my above credential into well-written SoP, which describes my aptitude and motivation for graduate study in the area of specialization, including preparation for this field
of study, my academic plans or research interests and experience in chosen area of study, and my future career goals.
